Ms. Hajara is one of them, and she recounts her experience with the law enforcement officers when she was younger. She tells hotjist.com that it was during the reign of ex-governor Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN when the police officers were to question citizens that were outside after 10pm. But the officials adjusted the curfew to just after 6pm. “One day, my fiance came to see me at my home in Ebute Metta Lagos, he was leaving and so we were at the bus stop at Oja Ale, Old Yaba road, Adekunle. He was boarding a bus going to Oyingbo. A conductor announced a bus going to ‘Oyingbo’, my fiance boarded the bus and I was forcefully pulled inside alongside and when we realized that it was the Police, we started shouting “Police!” repeatedly, and the car just zoomed off.” It was here that things took for a wild turn. She was forcefully pulled into the vehicle after her fiance boarded the vehicle, and then the car took off. “We were taken to a place called Denton, in Oyingbo and I was told to write a statement claiming that I was a prostitute. I told them that I’d rather die than lie against myself, that would be me spoiling my image. My fiance was also told to write a statement claiming that he was in an armed robbery gang, he also said that they’d rather kill him than him lying against himself. “We weren’t allowed to leave the place till they extorted money from me and my fiance.” This particular encounter with the Police had ended at this point. But she urged that “we need to keep protesting, they need to stop. God is our only saviour, and that thunder would be sent to their heads.” The lady recounts another experience and claims the first is just the tip of the iceberg. Hajara said she and her five brothers usually attended Islamic lessons. “I can’t even count how many times they arrested my five brothers… and my mum will run outside, she’d have to run to the police station. She said it was a regular occurence after Islamic lessons on their way home, they would always get arrested without reasonable cause and the only way to get out of there was by paying the officers as per their request. As her final words regarding the issue, Hajaru pleads, “What is going on in this country? We don’t need to shut up. We need to keep shouting do that our voices can be heard”.
