A white man who saw her cautioning the kids while on his way back home from work, resorted to attacking her instead. The Nigerian girl was dragged on the floor and left with bruises after the family members of the white man joined the fight, making it 5 against the two Nigerians.

However the police was called in, they took sides and never did much about the incident.

Recall that few months ago, a Nigerian woman identified as Queen Obioma, sued United Airlines after she and her children were walked out of a plane following complaints from a white man that he could not stand her body odour.

Chicago Tribune reports that the incident occurred in 2016, when Obioma and her two children were boarding a flight from Houston to San Francisco. According to the reports, the trio were on their second leg of a three-flight journey to Ontario, Canada, from Lagos.

Obioma revealed that the white male passenger took the seat she was initially assigned to in the business-class cabin.She was later asked to sit somewhere else after the passenger refused to give up the seat.

Just before the plane took off, Obioma stood up to use the bathroom and on her way back, was blocked by the same passenger, keeping her from accessing her seat. According to her, she said “excuse me” thrice but was forced to squeeze past him when he refused to budge.

However, a crew member approached Obioma before she could sit, and said that the pilot had specifically asked that she be removed from the plane because the same male passenger had complained that he could not fly with her due to her body odour.

The complaint filed by Obioma’s lawyer in Houston stated that, “At that point Ms. Obioma was lost, confused and disoriented. Her mind went blank and she was utterly befuddled.”

Obioma tried to explain that her children had important school-related appointments that they could not miss but she was refused re-entry into the plane.

“Ms. Obioma watched her minor children marched out of the aircraft like criminals, confused and perplexed … She sobbed uncontrollably for a long time.”
