Below is what she said.

“So yesterday, I made a one way U-turn on my way out, and before I could even complete the turning, I saw 10 task foe heavily armed men pointing guns at me with loud screams. As I opened my door, they threw me out of the drivers seat, seized my key and told me to go to the back seat with 4 policemen. At that point, I started crying and begging them buy they wouldn’t have it. They took me to an unknown destination, according to them, it’s where we will wait for their commander to come and decide what to do to my car.

“From 10-2pm, 5 hours, we waited for their commander to come. While waiting, I had cried out my eyes cos I was uncomfortable and hungry. To make matters worse, I was intensely harassed by one of them who was almost trying to use play to touch my breast. At that point, I lost my cool and flipped on him and he started saying that he’s only trying to help me”.
