Hadiza Ibrahim, a female beggar, has been arrested after the sum of N500,000 and $100 were found in her possession in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
The spokesperson for the Federal Capital Territory Administration, Social and Development Secretariat, Shaka Sunday, who confirmed the development to Punch, said that the woman was in the agency’s custody at the Bwari area council.
According to him, Hadiza had yet to explain how she came by the money found on her.
“We caught the woman with $100 and N500,000. The lady is still in our centre in Bwari. She is undergoing profiling because she has not been able to give us all the relevant information and how she came about the money.” He said.
Meanwhile, actress, Chita Agwu Johnson, has asked people to stop encouraging ‘those terrorists in traffic claiming to be beggars’.
Chita likened these ‘beggars’ to ‘criminals’ and her reason for that is because of the fact that they foam the driver’s window side when the driver refuses to give them money.
In her words ;
“We really need to stop encouraging those terrorists in traffic claiming to be beggars, harassing you and foaming your drivers window side when you refuse to part with your money! This is harassment and we need to stop encouraging these criminals.”
