”I met one of the women, a corps member visiting Abuja for Easter who was arrested while she was buying indomie by the road side. She was beaten, can’t share the photo of a big blood clot on her bum from the beating. She was violated too. This must stop.
Most of the women who spoke at a press conference said they were arrested at different locations. One of them said she was at a birthday party when she was arrested. The women said they were forced to plead guilty and were fined N3000.
