Speaking before a joint committee session with officials of Katsina Emirate, Christian Association of Nigeria (NAN) Katsina chapter, and security personnel, Habiba said, “I chose on my own to become a Muslim and relocated to the emir’s palace for fear of what I might go through and the threat coming from my parents.”
