“Kindly Google my name or just Type AMARACHI IGIDIMBAH on YouTube, you will see my story, I was a VICTIM of 2015 presidential campaign rally. Most People know this story because it was on Linda Ikeji’s blog and many other blogs, and most people don’t know the story, but I want to tell you now; it happened in Ajah Lagos state, at about 4.pm.

“I was not even participating in the rally, I was just in front of a shop where I made a purchase, waiting for my receipt, then the campaign van approached with lots of people singing and jubilating including bikers, in a flash of 10 – seconds, 2 guys walked up to me and my friend, 1 stabbed me in the eye and took away my 2phones and wallet.”

Amarachi Igidimbah also narrated that her friend was attacked alongside with her. The hoodlums tore her friend’s clothes while struggling to get her to release her phones to them. It all happened fast and the people around didn’t know what was happening until she [Amarachi] was covered with blood after she was stabbed just above her eyes.

“The other attacked my friend and tore her clothes up to her bra while they were struggling for her phones until she started shouting and drawing attention, then the hoodlums disappeared into the crowd, no one even noticed what had happened, until another 1 minute or more and I was in my own pool of blood, it was only by God’s grace I didn’t loose my left eye, because fortunately for me the hoodlum stabbed me on my eyebrow.”
