The 5 year-old girl was kidnapped and poisoned by her school proprietor Abdulmalik Tanko, sometime in 2021 after collecting ransom from her parents.
Delivering judgement on Thursday, Justice Usman Naaba, gave the five count charges in Hanifa Abubakar’s murder case as
(ii) attempting to kidnap,
(iii) counselling to kidnap,
(v) poisoning to death.
The Judge sentenced Fatima Musa for conspiracy and attempt to kidnap and sentenced her to one year each on the two counts because she is a nursing mother.
