School proprietor who murdered Hanifa Abubakar shares how it happened
Narrating to the police, Tanko said he had bought the rat poison which he used to end the life of his 5-year-old pupil at N100.
Hanifa's uncle, Suraj Suleiman said Tanko's wife rejection of keeping the child prompted him to take Hanifa to Tundunwada, Kano where he operates a private school.
It was at the location that he laced her tea with the N100 rate poison before cutting her body into pieces and then buried her in a shallow grave in the school.
