There was drama at the headquarters of the Kano State Police Command on Friday, when Fatima Maina, mother of late 5-year-old Hanifa Abubakar, attacked the teacher who killed her daughter.
It can be recalled that Abdulmalik Mohammed Tanko, a schoolteacher, was arrested by men of the police command for the gruesome murder of a minor after abducting her and collecting part of the ransom he demanded.
According to a report by the Daily Trust, the grieving parents were at the command headquarters today, January 21, and the mother of the deceased pounced on her daughter’s alleged killer the moment she sighted him.
“Immediately, Fatima sighted Tanko, she charged towards him, raining slaps and blows on him as she demanded why he took her daughter’s life. The drama continued for a while until policemen whisked the prime suspect away”, Daily Trust reported.
Two more suspects, including Tanko’s wife, have been arrested in connection with the case.
