A Canada-based Nigerian lady identified as Satchet Rayne has accused officials of the Nigeria Immigration Service at the Lagos airport of extorting her 14-year-old daughter, who was travelling to Canada alone.
Registering her outrage on Twitter, the lady alleged that Immigration officers took all the money on her teenage daughter.
In her words: “My 14 year old daughter, FOURTEEN, is traveling by herself.
“Immigration took ALL her money before they let her go. They took money from a fucking 14 year. Didn’t even leave her with 1kobo or 1 thousand naira so she can buy food while she waits. How WICKED!!!! @FAAN_Official.
“I am so angry. A child!!!!!!! Why are you stealing money from a child! And you took all of it and didn’t let her call her mother?!!!
“Whoever was involved, you will die in penury! Your joy will turn to ashes! You will plant seeds and harvest thorns that will tear your flesh!
“I am stunned at the wickedness. A child!!! A bloody child!!!!
“Since you people want to focus on the unimportant, airlines don’t provide unaccompanied minor services for connecting flights. Only direct flights and as she is coming to Canada…
“They do however provide supervision on the flight and sit kids together. Now that’s clear.”
