Ismaila represented Nigeria at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing competing at the 100 metres sprint. In her first round heat she placed fourth in a time of 11.72 which was not enough to advance to the second round. Together with Ene Franca Idoko, Gloria Kemasuode, Agnes Osazuwa and Oludamola Osayomi she also took part in the 4x100 metres relay. In their first round heat (without Ismaila) they placed fourth behind Belgium, Great Britain and Brazil. Their time of 43.43 seconds was the best non-directly qualifying time and the sixth time overall out of sixteen participating nations. With this result they qualified for the final in which they replaced Osazuwa with Ismaila. They sprinted to a time of 43.04 seconds, a third place and a bronze medal after Russia and Belgium.
