“I gave her N1000 because I didn’t have those items she mentioned. She brought my brother out, I saw him, he was not wearing clothes, he was wearing just a pair of boxer.

“Then a police man came out and started scolding the police woman. He told the woman that she will get into trouble one day because of money, he asked the woman if she was the one who locked my brother up.

“The policeman forcefully pushed back my brother to the cell, collected the money from the woman, gave me back but I refused to take back the money.

“I asked him why he was returning the money since I’d seen the person I gave the money in respect of. The police man said he won’t release my brother, he threw the money at me, he said he would lock me up too if I talk more and asked me to go home.

”I picked the money and left. I called my eldest brother and narrated everything to him. My brother asked me to go that he would come the following day”.
