According to LEADERSHIP, the woman speaking Hausa language to her interrogators denied any prior involvement with such activities. “I have never done this before,” she pleaded, adding that, “hunger pushed me into this.”

According to the suspect, a stranger had entrusted her with the ammunition, claiming complete ignorance of the man’s identity or whereabouts. “I don’t know what it is,” she claimed. “It was given to me by a man, I don’t know him, his name or where he lives.”
