“I cried today. Sitting in my room,on bed,many things. As a black girl in China,I have been subjected to a compulsory quarantine,even without no history of travel for the past 12months. I don’t sleep well at night again,not knowing my fate the next day.

 

“I don’t have a problem going under quarantine or staying indoors for long,but the target on Only black peoples is demeaning. I see racist comments and posts towards black people from China and I have fears. #5GTOWERS #COVID19NIGERIA #ChinaMustExplain

 

“I hope all this will end ,my fears too. There are thousands of Chinese in African countries walking/working freely now without being forced like we are doing over here. The Nigerian government isn’t taking more action to this.

 

“No human deserves to be treated this way. The pressure is too much. The hate is too much. Black people are really suffering. Students are also not excluded in this case. I hope things gets better soon. China shouldn’t blame Africans.

“All I ever want and always want,is to finish my education. I motivate myself to push on. . Now lots of black students are indoors,some their landlords have asked them to move out.

 

“I appreciate everyone that have reached out to me,and the nice reassuring comments. I feel better. Thank you. This too shall pass.”
