Being unpaid for seven (7) months at her workplace, madam Khalifa felt the best way to ensure survival for herself and her children was to use a customer’s funds to establish a restaurant business to recoup the said fund before the customer requested for it.
Alas, the business failed, with madam Khalifa unable to recoup the customer’s money (N415,000). She was charged with the offence of stealing and remanded in Kirikiri Maximum for women since October 2021.
Upon being informed, Gavel intervened by providing legal representation, perfecting her bail conditions (she was granted bail since October 2021 but was unable to perfect same).
With prompt legal support from our legal Team, Madam Khalifa is now reunited with her family.
