She went on to give a detailed account of what happened on that infamous night at Lekki Tollgate, Lagos State.
“My career is gone, all my bookings are gone. But I am happy that I have used my platform to do this. I don’t want to run forever. I want to go back home; and I don’t care if they pick me when I get home,”she said.
She told the CNN journalist how the government has openly bullied; and attacked some of the protesters since the protest; by seizing their passports or illegally detaining them.
