“Do not insult the grief of Nigerians, do not insult the intelligence of Nigerians. Do not insult the pains the families are facing.

 

“People were falling left and right. Yes there were soldiers there and also the same SARS people were trying to get off the streets also came, but that was 40-45 minutes after the soldiers left.

 

“They used tear gas on us. The tear gas was like Cotonou pepper mixed with acid. We were running.

 

“We would run and we would come back and the only thing we fought with was our flags. We would sit on the floor and we would raise our hands up, raising our flags and singing the national anthem. That was all we had.

 

“They put off the lights. Even if there was no power in that axis, there was always light at the tollgate. There were no lights. The street lights were off. It was pitch black.

They also shot a boy who was at my back trying to shield me.

 

“We saw some soldiers who were picking their shells, but as we were running around, we were trying to pick their shells too because we wanted proof.

 

“However, I never said 78 people died. What I do know is that when I was doing the live video, 7 people had died.

 

“When my phone died, we had counted about 15 people. I don’t know if it was more than that. We had a lot of people with stray bullet wounds, gunshot wounds, and all that.

 

“People did die. It wasn’t photoshopped. I must be a tech genius to photoshop a live feed.

 

“It was a horrible experience but must continue to move.

 

“We must continue. If we stop I fear it will probably be the next 60 years before we talk about this again. We must continue peacefully.

 

“I condemn any sort of violence. I condemn the burning of buses and peoples livelihood,” she said.
