My life is your hands Nigerians. I was in the ATM queue and this army official asked me to move so he could pass. I asked him if he was in the queue that there is a queue, he asked me to move.
“I moved and continued asking him if he was in the queue. He flared up as you will see in the video below, and before I knew what happened he brought out his belt and hit me. I never insulted him. He threatened to make me bleed in my own country because I asked if he was in the queue. I want justice”, she tweeted.
