Didi Ekanem: The #EndSARS protest did not change the police

Nollywood actress Didi Ekanem has slammed #ENDSARS Protest as she narrates her horrific encounter with policemen.


She admitted she broke the law by making a “one way U-turn” on her way out.


Didi Ekanem said before she completed the turn, “10 heavily armed” task force men pointed guns at her, opened her door and threw her out of the driver’s seat. This was at about 10 am.


She said they made her ride in the back of her car with other officers and took her to an unknown location where the officers told her they had to wait for their commander.

As they waited, she said one of the officers tried to touch her breasts and when she warned him, he said he was only trying to help. The commander eventually came at about 3 pm and took her to Alausa, Ikeja, then allegedly proceeded to make sexual passes at her.


When she refused, she said he fined her a huge sum.


She added that while she was there, she witnessed them harass and extort others who they also detained.



Didi Ekanem, known for her voluptuous body, has revealed that she once battled insecurity because of her physique.


She is a Nigerian actress and fashion designer.


Speaking in a recent interview, the actress also said she had been judged quite “harshly” by some people who thought she had a sugar daddy because of her looks.

She explained,

“Some people usually judge me because of my body.

In fact, some people assume that I must be a ‘runs girl’ or that I have a sugar daddy sponsoring me.

Some people just feel that I am a bad girl and I think it’s a general perception once some people see curvy and voluptuous ladies.”
