In the caption, she called on the Lagos state government to come to her aid and that of her twin sisters - who presumably is her business partner - as they are both orphans who struggled to start up a business.
"We are orphans and this happened to us, it's not easy to get money to start up a business and everything will go off in just 1 night.
