I tell them say make they drop me for Federal Secretariat, that I no get money, but I go settle for dere when I con see my aunty, but they no gree for me. Na so one policeman con waka come meet me. Him think se na ashawo work I de do…
“I tell am say na my Madam wey throw me commot for house, after she don beat me. He still de talk say make I follow am go station to report the matter. I tell am say I no wan report anything, I just wan go see my aunty for Secretariat. I say I just wan beg money for transport, but he talk say I must follow am go station.
“So, I con follow am go Station. I don de sit there tay…time don go. I think say make I ask the Madam wey de take report.
