President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, expressed the Nation’s condolences to the family of the five-year-old school girl, Hanifa Abubakar, whose body was discovered in a shallow grave in Kano after two months of fruitless search.

The suspected murderer of Hanifa Abubakar, who was paraded before newsmen at the Bompai Police headquarters, Kano on Friday, has confessed to kidnapping, and killing the innocent girl with a rat poison after collecting N100,000 being part of the N6 million ransom he demanded from the girl’s parents.

The President praised the work of the Police and the Secret Service in unraveling the mystery behind the disappearance of Hanifa, and particularly for the arrest of her teacher and his other accomplices suspected of the child’s kidnap and murder.

Buhari said the family and the whole nation, which followed up on Hanifa’s travail everyday since her disappearance in December last year, were hoping for the girl to have been rescued alive and well, adding however that the very thorough and painstaking detective operation by the law enforcement bodies leading to the discovery of the corpse and the arrest of the suspects who have already made confessions was commendable, calling it an achievement that should instill more confidence in the authorities.
