Within our little knowledge and experience in discharging our duty, with the assistance of security personnel attached to us, we understand that Hadiza was not involved in any criminal activity and if you look at the money found in her possession, it was accumulated overtime,” Amar said.

Adding that;

On the profiling we did on her, we gave the Police in our team time to play their role, and they did what they could, and it was clearly established that she was not into such nefarious acts. She was so wise to have selected the areas of her own begging business, where she realises huge money daily.”

He stressed that;

Most of these street beggars have more money than folks who sweat it out to earn a dime, this woman obviously understands her target audience, a self made marketer
