#EndSARS: Actress, Mosun Filani remembers her brother who was allegedly killed by police officers 10 years ago

Nollywood actress, Mosun Filani has taken to Instagram to remember her brother who was allegedly killed by police officers. 

As the #EndSARS protests continue, more people are sharing their experience with police brutality.

Mosun Filani is one of those people. She took to Instagram to describe how her family did not know about her brother’s death until two days after and then had to go from mortuary to mortuary looking for his body.

She wrote:

“Nigeria failed u in 2010 my sweet brother.
U were 25years old then.

“Officers from eleweran/obantoko abeokuta killed u on Friday evening, but we were notified on Sunday morning. We don’t have the full details of what happened or how it happened till date.

“We went to both station, but we were treated like criminals, and chased away. I was able to locate ur corpse thru the help of a big area brother back then…. We went to all the mortuarys in abeokuta one after the other tipping them to let me search thru their abandoned corpses by police.

“When I found u at ijaiye state hospital u were naked and dead but ur hand was still on ur stomach where u were shot and I could see the bullet hole. I shouted, rolled on the muddy floor, I sat amongst the many corpse and held u my handsome brother before I was dragged away.

“They never wanted us to locate ur corpse at all. But today We Nigerians are saying NO MORE!!!

“RIP OLATUBOSUN OLUWATOSIN FILANI. POLICE KILLED U IN 2010.
