Nigeria: Guinean dupes salesgirl of N.97m goods
Abdullahi gave the account at the resumed trial of Kamara, a Guinean, arraigned on a one-count charge of theft, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
The defendant was aided by an interpreter in French language while the case was heard in court.
Abdullahi, who was cross- examined by the prosecuting counsel, Kalu Ucheje, said the defendant met her at Garki International Market, Abuja, on March 12, 2015.
The salesgirl said she greeted the defendant in English language and ushered her into the shop.
She added that the defendant claimed that she usually supplies clothes to one female Inspector in the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), Abuja, and wanted some wrappers.
According to Abdullahi, she told the defendant that she was new in the area and the defendant immediately went outside the shop and came back within three minutes.
“She touched my arm and told me to gather some wrappers and shoes for her and follow her to collect the money for them.
“Immediately she touched me, I did as she instructed me and arranged the wrappers in “a Ghana must go bag’’, and put some pairs of shoes in a black leather bag,” she said.
