The parents of the children told me to come get them for people who would help cater to their educational needs because, in their villages, there are no schools.

This is actually the first time I am doing this, and I did not collect any money from their parents.

I am a mother of seven, a teacher at Adamu Primary School in Bali LGA. I am 45 years and was arrested at the car park in Bali when I was about leaving with the children.
