Speaking through her lawyer, Barrister Mubarak Sani Jibril, on the court presmises, Gabon denied the allegations levelled against her.
"After hearing his allegations, she actually gave her own response which of course according to her, she has never met him, she never knew what happened. He met her on Facebook purportedly owned by her, so, we don’t know anything about that; we have no business with that, we have heard of him, we will allow the court to decide.” Mubarak said.
Also a lawyer to the complainant, Barrister N. Murtala, said the supposed lover, who happened to be his client met Gabon on Facebook and from there they became friends, adding that she promised to marry him and he started spending money on her.

He explained further that they did not oppose her bail because the offence is bailable.
The judge, Khadi Malam Rilwanu Kyaudai, adjourned the case to 28 of June 2022 and granted her bail with the condition to provide two reliable sureties residing in the state.
