Hanifa Abubakar’s Murder Update: Nigeria’s Minister of Information Pantami Pay Condolences.
The Minister Of communications, Professor Isa Pantami was spotted at the family house of late Hanifa.
The minister with his entourage purposely went to sympathize with her Mom and Dad as they mourned the death of their 5-year-old daughter, Hanifa.
It will be recalled that little Hanifa was abducted a few weeks ago on her way back home from an Arabic school in dakata, Yan kaba Area Of Kano State.
She was later killed and buried by her school teacher, Abdulmalik Tanko who later demanded the sum of 6 million naira as ransom.
Speaking during the visit, Pantami presided on behalf of the President of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari, saying the culprit will face the consequence of his actions.
He also called on security personnel to add more efforts in tackling the issue of insecurity in Kano state and Nigeria at large.
The minister later pray for God Almighty to grant the deceased eternal rest and also give the parent the strength to bear this great loss.
When paraded, the suspect, who did not show any remorse, confessed to using N100 rat poison to end the life of Hanifa.
He said that after picking her up in a tricycle, he lied to his wife that she was the daughter of one of the women working in his school who travelled and that the girl would be staying with them for some days.
” I realised that the girl’s parents were informed that when picking her, she made mention of ‘ uncle. ‘This gave me the impression that they might be suspecting me as the uncle.
“After some days, some of my teachers visited my house very early in the morning, and when they came, I was also suspecting that they were sent over to the house to find out whether the girl was there with me; that was on the 5th day after the kidnap.
That was when I conceived the idea of killing her, ” the suspect said.
