“They said that I burned down the site, did nothing,” the mother of four children shouts after the arrest.
Aishat A mother of four children pleaded not guilty after being arrested by police on suspicion of setting fire to a police station.
Aishat Muhammad described how she ended up in police custody after going to fetch food for her family. Aishat said she was on her way to get groceries for her family when soldiers surrounded her and several other women and loaded them into a van.
All his attempts to explain his innocence were in vain, as the soldiers listened to their cries. He said he spent several days in jail without food.
“I did nothing. I have a husband with four children. They said that we were criminals, that we burned down the police station. Can a lady burn a police station?
We can’t call anyone. Nobody knows where we are, there is no food. Six days have passed today.
We are punished and called criminals. When we try to tell ourselves that we are innocent, they will beat us and ask us to shut up. They even hit me in the leg with the point of a pistol, ”he complained.
