Nigerian Woman Details Alleged Police Brutality Over Her Tattoos

A Nigerian lady, Chioma Pius has taken to Facebook to lament about an alleged assault meted out to her by men of the Nigerian Police Force after she was spotted with tattoos.

According to her, she was on a journey from Bayelsa to Port Harcourt when their vehicle was stopped  a police check point. She said she was picked on and stereotyped because she had tattoos on her body, then they proceeded to physically assaulting her.

She made a post detailing her account of the ordeal, and posted pictures of her injuries.  This is what she wrote:

“Today was a horrible day. I experienced the worst day in my life. Today I was brutalized by police officers.

This happened at emohua axis of river state. At the highway leading to bayelsa. My crime was that I tattooed my body. In this modern age. A police officer asked me to step down from the taxi I was traveling with from bayelsa to portharcourt. I asked to know why and he asked again so I got out of the car and then he asked to know who I was and what I did. I gladly introduced myself after which i had a big smile on my face and my phone rang but I couldn’t answer and then he said I should I identify myself to his superior which i found funny and I was just looking at the guy when he said I should get detained. That I don’t have manners and that am a cultist, a prostitute, an armed robber. There is no disgusting name this men didn’t call me and all this time I was just laughing and telling them I am not entering their mobile cell. They seized my phone’s so I couldn’t record them.

They searched my purse And when they couldn’t find any money they got more angry And said that I don’t even have money And am showing myself And before I know if one of the officers grabbed me by my trousers and pushed me to the van and the other guy slapped me and punched me repeatedly . I was asking why they are beating me up and their boss used his gun to hit me on my thighs.went away came back with cane And was flogging me And calling me names . And pushed me into their cell.
