Her abductors had later reached out to her family to demand the sum of 6 million naira as a ransom for her release. The kidnapper was arrested on Wednesday when he was trying to get part of the ransom money. But it was discovered that the abductor had already killed the little girl.

Combined efforts from the police and officers of the Department of State Service (DSS) have led to the arrest of the suspected abductors whose names were given as – Abdulmalik Tanko and Hashim Isyaku. Tanko is the proprietor of the school where the late Hanifa was a pupil.

According to the statement from the police, Tanko admitted during interrogation that Hanifa was his pupil, and that he abducted and took her to his house, and from there he contacted her family to pay 6 million naira ransom for her release.

He said that when he realized that Hanifa had recognized him, he poisoned her to death, and connived with Hashim Isyaku to take her body to bury in a shallow grave.

The suspects led the security operatives and the medical team to the scene where Hanifa was buried. Her body was exhumed and taken to a specialist hospital in Kano where it was examined, and then released to her family for burial.
