Lolade Siyonbola resisted a white a student who called the police on her for sleeping at a Yale University Common room.

A white female student, Sarah Braasch, called the police on a Nigerian, Lolade Siyonbola, for sleeping in a Yale University Common room.

Braasch, who had walked in on the female first-year graduate student Siyonbola, who studies in the African Studies department at Yale, had insisted she had a right to call the police after meeting resistance from the Nigerian.


The Washington Post reported that the incident created room for a racially biased interaction between the rivals.

“I have every right to call the police. You cannot sleep in that room,” says the white student reportedly took a Snap of Siyonbola who responded with a burst of energy.

“Continue. Get my good side,” replied Lolade Siyonbola who also gave responding police officers a headache while they tried to verify her identity.

During a conversation with police officers, she had explained that Sarah Braasch earlier called the cops on her friend “because he was in the stairwell and he was black,” says a report by The Washington Post.


It was gathered that Lolade Siyonbola presented her ID, ensuring a peaceful departure by police officers who urged her to have a good night.
