Nigerian actress and filmmaker, Toyin Abraham has shared the touching story of her family friend who she claims became crippled when hit by a stray bullet from a police officer’s gun.

Sharing a photo of Nike Adekanle sitting in a wheelchair, Toyin Abraham wrote:

“This is my family friend Adenike @nikeadekanle .. She wasn’t born like this, It was a stray bullet from the Nigeria police on the 23rd of July 1996 around 3pm in apata ibadan and she was in the hospital for over a year. Not even a call or check-up or Bill payment by the police.
{ P.s- I had to get her permission to do this } #endpolicebrutality.”

Adenike confirmed the story, writing: “I’m not keeping quiet anymore…. saying this brings back a lot of horrible things that I want to forget but if this helps our fight against police brutality then WE MOVE!!!!!! #EndSars #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY.”
