She was also seen blasting the officials, accusing them of lacking empathy for fellow human beings.
She said, “My Nigerian people, see me; I’ve been here since 6 pm with my two children. The first one is three years; the second one is two years. Since they brought us here, they did not ask us anything.
“They only came to ask my name, age and nationality which l answered them. That’s all they demanded for, nothing else.
Around 11pm, my children complained of hunger and when l told them, they brought Indian meals that they could barely eat.
They said my case would be attended to in the morning.
“I was in my shop when they arrested me without any known offence. I wasn’t arrested with drugs or laptop.”
