#JusticeForHanifa: Nigerians Demand Death Penalty For Teacher Who ‘Kidnapped, Killed’ Pupil


Nigerians have called for justice and gross punishment of the alleged killer of Hanifa, a five-year-old pupil who was reportedly abducted by her teacher, Abdulmalik Tanko, and eventually killed after 47 days in captivity in Kano State.

The child was returning home from school earlier in December when she was waylaid by her teacher and other suspects who promised to take her home in a tricycle but fled with her, the pupil’s uncle, Suraj Zubair, told Humangle.

Eventually, Hanifa was allegedly poisoned to death and her body cut into pieces and put in a polythene bag.

According to the Kano State Police command, the suspects had demanded N6 million ransom for her release.

Following an investigation by the police command, the girl’s decomposed body was discovered and the prime suspect’s arrest made public on Thursday.

Nigerians who reacted on social media called for death penalty for the suspect as contained in Kano Anti-Kidnapping Law.

As of Friday morning, #JusticeForHanifa was trending at number two spot on Twitter with over 14,000 reactions on the microblogging app. Below are some of their reactions:
