Earlier, the prosecutor, Ibrahim Shuaibu, had told the court that the Police arrested Zainab on the road smoking marijuana, adding that she had been convicted before and was serving a jail term due to her inability to pay a fine of N7,000, until a religious organisation, the Muslim Council of Nigeria, paid the fine.

Also speaking in court, a member of the council, Abdulrahman Sadiq, commended the court’s judgement for instilling value and promoting peace in the society, while praying the court to reduce the punishment for the convict.
