Story from Uji A ILIYASU 

Aisha Abubakar, the woman arrested with 550 rounds of AK47 ammunition over the week, has confessed that she was paid N50,000 per trip to deliver the weapons to bandits in Katsina State.

Aisha, 25 years, based in Kubwa, Abuja, was arrested by the Kaduna State Police Command along Zaria-Kaduna highway while heading to Katsina State on 23 June 2024.

She spoke to newsmen at the police command headquarters where she was paraded alongside other suspected criminals on Thursday.

“I was arrested by the police with ammunition. It was Wawo that first brought a bag of fertiliser to give to a commercial driver to take it to Katsina.

“The second trip I went there myself and delivered the item but I was arrested on my third trip to Dan Musa. I was paid N50,000 per trip,” she said.

She claimed ignorance of the content of the fertiliser bag given to her because she never opened it.

Police Commissioner Ali Audu Dabigi said the suspect was arrested with 550 rounds of AK47 live ammunition, which she had collected from a man named Muhammad (surname unknown) from Loko, Nasarawa State.
