Noble Kids Comprehensive College, located in Kwanar Dakata community in Nassarawa LGA of Kano state, have been set on fire.

TheCornet had reported the call for public execution of the culprit.

Aisha Buhari, Nigeria’s first lady, supported the call.

Tanko confessed to killing and burying Hanifa in a grave within the school premises

“I lied to Fatima and Isyaku that the girl’s mother was the one behind the plan to kidnap the girl to extort her father,” the suspect confessed.

“After Hashimu and Fatima failed to kidnap the girl, I decided to carry out the kidnapping myself. I kidnapped her when she was returning from Islamic school and took her to my family house.

“She stayed in my family house for about two weeks before I killed her. I killed her after some teachers in my school came to my house.

“I became suspicious. I thought they came to investigate me because they said the girl had once mentioned my name. It was after that visit that I gave her rat poison. I then contacted my friend and asked for his help to dig a hole where the girl would be buried.

“I demanded the sum of N6 million from the parents. I contacted them through the phone number her parents gave the school.”
