In her defence, the defendant told the court that she only serves as an intermediary between the complainant and one Ismail Muhammad, who had promised to help her secure employment.

Mr Dadai Yatai, a lawyer from the Kaduna State Ministry of Justice, told the Sharia court that a magistrate was currently hearing the case.
