The statements said :

“Various videos taken at the scene captured the defendant wearing protective goggles and gloves; taking a flaming piece of wooden police barricade from the rear window of the PPD sedan that was already on fire; and then shoving the flaming wood into the PPD SUV that was not on fire.”





According to government, she’s now facing a “maximum possible sentence of eighty years in prison. This will be followed by three years of supervised release. She also faces a fine of up to $500,000 (₦193.7 million).

The U.S. Attorney said “torching a police car has nothing to do with peaceful protest or any legitimate message.”

He also added in his tweets that it’s “richly ironic that we identified this alleged arsonist by her peace sign tattoo.”
