Some angry mob have set ablaze Noble Kids School, Warshu Hospital Road, in Kawaji, Kano State, over the kidnapping and killing of a five-year-old pupil, Hanifa Abubakar. SAHARA REPORTERS reports.

But while others had alighted from the tricycle, the driver had asked Hanifa to stay behind so that he could further give her a lift to her compound.

Instead of taking Hanifa to her house, the driver rather whisked her away to an undisclosed location where her family was later reached for ransom.

Tanko had demanded a N6million ransom from the parents of the child and in the process of collecting part of the money, he was arrested.

He had failed to disclose that the victim had been killed.

When he was arrested at the Kano Police Command headquarters on Friday, he told newsmen that he poisoned the girl with a rat poison that he bought for N100.

Tanko had earlier confessed that he killed the girl because she could recognise him.

According to him, the abductor first took her to his wife, but the wife rejected to keep her.

“I now took her to Tudunwada area. I laced her tea with rat poison”. jamb results

Meanwhile, there was a mild drama at the headquarters of the Kano State Police Command when Fatima Maina, mother of a slain five-year-old pupil, Hanfia Abubakar, charged at the proprietor who was arrested in connection with the death of the student.
