Popular activist, Aisha Yesufu is presently receiving accolades from Nigerians for her bravery at the #ENDSARS protest in Abuja on Saturday.
Despite being shot at by the police, Aisha Yesufu did not back down neither did she stop speaking.
“I still can’t believe I am neither dead nor in the hospital. Every step I took yesterday walking away as men [email protected] at me I braced myself for the moment of impact. It seems President [email protected]&@ProfOsinbajogave IGP order to shoot at protesters…We met with IGP who in our presence called some of his CPs & gave them instructions to protect protesters as demanded by law. He went to have a meeting with Osinbajo & Buhari and he sent his men to kill. Is he not following Buhari’s orders?” Aisha Yesufu tweeted.
