The Kano State Government has charged three defendants in the murder of Hanifa Abubakar, a five-year-old girl.
Tanko Abdulmalik Mohammed, the school’s proprietor, Ishiaku Hamisu, and Fatimah Jibril were arraigned in Gidan Murtala’s Chief Magistrate Court 12.
The allegations of conspiracy, abduction, concealing/keeping a kidnapped person in custody, and culpable homicide were read out in court, and they all consented.
The lawsuit was, however, postponed until February 2.
Musa Abdulahi, the Attorney General of Kano State, assured Nigerians that justice would be served without fail in the next one or two months.
“What I will like to assure you is that the Ministry of Justice is going to, within the next three to four days, file a charge before the proper court.
“We intend to pursue this case vigorously and within the next month or two, we are going to finish with the prosecution of this case. Pls stay calm, let the law take its course. We are a society of law-abiding citizens.
“We do know that it is very painful when these kinds of things happen, we tend to ask ourselves what is happening with our society but we should understand we are living peacefully because of the laws governing us.
“If not for those laws and security agencies, these suspects would not have been arrested within the shortest possible time.”
