While being paraded along with 52 suspects who were arrested for various crimes in the state, Yohanna confessed that the ammunition was given to her by her military lover identified as Lance Corporal Aliyu Isa.
She claimed that her military boyfriend asked her to deliver the ammunition to a driver who will take it to another soldier in Yola, Adamawa State, adding that she was not aware that the contents given to her in a polythene bag were ammunition.
She said, “I have been dating the soldier for one year and four months. His name is Aliyu Isa; he is a Lance Corporal with the Nigerian Army serving in Askira. He gave me the bag and instructed me to take it to the park in Uba and waybill it in a vehicle going to Yola.
“I arrived at the Una Motor Park around 5pm. When I got to the driver, he asked me what was in the bag and I told him I did not know, then he said we should open it to confirm before he would accept the luggage.
“Opening the bag, we discovered it was live ammunition. We counted them and discovered 90 pieces of live ammunition. That was how I was arrested and brought to the state police headquarters.
“The soldier was also arrested by the military; he is detention now at the military facility here in Maiduguri.”
