By now it is known fact that vicious hoodlums took advantage of the peaceful protests to wreak havoc in different states in the country. There had been reports of attacks on private citizens, government officials, and even celebrities.
Veteran Nollywood actor Clem Ohameze has narrated how he was assaulted by hoodlums in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital, on October 22.
As reported by BBC Igbo, the actor said he was en route a movie location when the unfortunate incident happened.
He disclosed that he assumed they were part of the EndSARS protesters at first, but things became ugly after he was identified as a celebrity.
He went further to disclose that they took his money, about N650k, phones, and eventually cut his hand with a machete. He, however, said he reported to the police when the incident happened.
Clem further revealed that he received treatment in an Uyo hospital after the attack and got discharged on Sunday, October 25.
He added that his apprehended attackers have pleaded guilty to assault and are awaiting trial.
