Angry locals set Noble Kids Comprehensive School on fire after Hanifa Abubakar was killed by school’s proprietor
The school 5-year-old pupil, Hanifa Abubakar, attended has been set ablaze by aggrieved locals.
Hanifa was a student of Noble Kids School in Kano. She was kidnapped on Dec. 2 and killed by the school’s proprietor, Abdulmalik Tanko, and he recently confessed to the crime.
Noble Kids Comprehensive College is located at Kwanar Dakata in Nassarawa local government area of Kano.
Kano State police spokesman Abdullahi Kiyawa on Monday, Jan. 24, disclosed that angry youths set fire to the school in the middle of the night.
He said there was no casualty in the incident, but parts of the school’s building were razed
Kiyawa added that the police are yet to arrest any suspect in the incident.
Reports say Tanko only rented the building to run his school. The structure belongs to another person who has not been implicated in Hanifa’s alleged murder.
Locals have been urged to desist from taking the law into their hands
Kano State Government last Friday ordered the immediate closure of the private school where Hanifa was abducted on December 2 by her teacher, Abdulmalik Tanko, who is also the proprietor of the private school.
Tanko led police officers to the school premises where the remains of Hanifa were found buried in a shallow grave.
