‘It didn’t start well but God took control. I was only buying bread for the poor. Soldiers came in and started scattering things.

They said they are calling me in the office but they did not tell me my offence. Because they did not tell me my offence, I refused to follow them.

That drama that took place was important so that they will know that Igbo are here. That moment of Upper Iweka till the time we got to the army barracks close to Zik Mausoleum, to 82 Division of the Nigerian Army and to DSS office in Abuja, nobody touched me. They treated me with respect.
