Prègnant Nigerian Lady To Face 7 Years lmprisonment Over Her Bàd Comment On Erisco Tomatoe

A 39-year-old pregnant Nigerian woman identified as Chioma Okoli, is facing up to seven years in prison for writing a damning review about a can of tomato, stating that the tomatoe is too sweet.

The businesswoman based in Lagos, the country’s largest city, is being criminally prosecuted and sued in a civil court after she made negative comments about a product made by Nigerian foodmaker Erisco Foods.

When she posted this few months ago, a commenter wrote under her comment and said; Stop spoiling my brother’s product. If you don’t like it, use another one than bring it to social media or call the customer service.

Okoli responded; Help me advise your brother to stop k!lling people with his product, yesterday was my first time of using and it’s pure sugar.

The businesswoman, who currently four months pregnant, was arrested by plainclothes officers from Nigeria’s national police in September while she was in church, and told CNN that she was made to stand around in a leaky cell for hours.

Okoli said;
“There were no seats, so I stood all through till the next day.

“My legs were inside the water [that came in from the leaking roof, sometimes, I squatted to reduce the pressure on my legs. I was thinking about my children who were at home. I was talking to myself. I would think, 1 would pray, I was messed up”.
