Punch Metro learnt that the discovery threw residents into confusion.
The spokesperson for the Federal Capital Territory Administration, Social and Development Secretariat, Shaka Sunday, confirmed that the woman was in the agency’s custody at the Bwari area council.
He said the suspect had yet to explain how she came about the money found on her.

“The lady is still in our centre in Bwari. She is undergoing profiling because she has not been able to give us all the relevant information and how she came about the money.”
