“They said I burnt police station, I didn’t do anything”- Mother of four arrested alongside other women cries out
A Nigerian lady and mother of four was arrested by soldiers who claimed she and a group of other women burnt a police station.
The lady identified as Aishat Muhammed explained how she landed in the police station alongside some other women.
According to Aisha, she went out to buy food ingredients for her family when soldiers surrounded her and seven other women and put them in their van.
The soldiers claimed they burnt a police station which Aisha claimed to be innocent of. According to Aisha, all her efforts to explain that she’s innocent proved futile as the soldiers paid deaf ears to their pleas. Aisha also revealed they weren’t given food but water only.
“I didn’t do anything. I have a husband with four children. They said we are criminals, that we burnt police station. Can a lady burn police station?
We can’t call anybody. Nobody knows our whereabouts, no food. Today is making it six days. They are punishing us and calling us criminals. When we try to express ourselves that we are innocent, they will beat us and ask us to shut up. They even used the edge of the gun to hit my leg” she cried.
