“On the 18/12/2021, having realised that the victim recognized him, he claimed to have poisoned her to death, conspired with one Hashim Isyaku and buried her in a shallow grave within the private school premises located at Kwanar ‘Yan Gana, Tudun Murtala Quarters, Nassarawa LGA, Kano State.”

What on earth can possess a teacher/Schoolowner Abdulmalik Mohammed Tanko to kidnap this child and feed her with rat poison even after collecting N6,000,000. What on earth!!!
“There is something wrong in a system that has allowed kidnapping to become a “simple business” that anyone can engage in"
