While Mr Nansel said that Bilikisu was arrested because she was seen “at the crime scene,” Bilikisu’s mother said her daughter was arrested in their Karu residence.

Asked if Bilikisu’s parent’s house was what he meant by the “crime scene,” Mr Nansel said that the information he got was that she was arrested in Abdul’s house.

“The lady in question (Bilikisu) was also in the house when the police stormed the house,” he added, saying investigation was still ongoing on the whereabouts of Abdul.

Mr Nansel maintained that she was not tortured, denying allegations of torture witnessed by Bilikisu’s friend.

“No one can be interrogated without a lawyer,” he said.

But why was Bilikisu “released unconditionally” without interrogation since she had no lawyer, he was asked.

To that, he maintained that she was not tortured, rather she had been sick before the arrest.
