#EndSARS: BBNaija's Jeff Nweke reveals he was attacked by the police

As the days go by, more and more cases of Nigerians being brutalized and attacked by the police come up, and the latest person on the receiving end is none other Big Brother Naija's Jeff Nweke.

The former banker is one of the thousands of Nigerians, who are asking that the government listen to them and reform the police, but his experience last weekend wasn't a good one, as he found himself and some other protesters being attacked by the police.

Taking to Twitter, to share his experience, Jeff wrote, "I have never been more afraid of losing my life than today. And by who ? The Nigeria Police,” said the reality TV star, who joined many others calling for the end of the controversial arm of the Nigeria Police Force, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), which has been accused of being a menace to Nigerians.

He added, “I’m still in shock, we came out to protest in peace and when we stopped and knelt down they began shooting tear-gas canisters at us and advanced continuously towards us with their huge trucks, beating some of us and screaming, “KILL THEM, KILL THEM”!!!”

“I managed to get myself to a friend’s car and when the lead police truck spotted me trying to get in, he rammed into the car intentionally".

More Nigerians have taken to the streets to protest on Monday, as they demand the government pays more attention to their requests.
