A 54-year old grandmother, Hannah Ibadin, has been arrested for selling a Nokia phone belonging to a Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. David Aronokhale.
The phone was stolen from Fr. Aronokhale by armed men who also snatched his Toyota Highlander.
One of the robbers, Miracle Okon, gave the phone to Hannah also known as Area Mama, at a black spot along Akpakpava Street where indian hemp and other hard drugs are sold, The Nation writes.
Hannah, who sold the phone for N12,000, said she used to visit the black spot to smoke indian hemp and was not aware that the phone was stolen.
According to Hannah, “I met him at the black spot at Akpakpava. The place is called Nosa joint. It is before the old post office. I gave him the money and he gave me N1000. I didn’t know it was a stolen phone. I go to the black spot to smoke Indian hemp. My husband is at Uromi.”
Miracle said he used to smoke Indian hemp at the black spot also called “The cartel place”.
Police Commissioner, Danmallam Abubakar, said the suspects would soon be arraigned in court.
