As the trail for the killing of the innocent five years old kid continue; the wife of the accused person surprised the court yesterday as she testified that her husband truly kidnapped and killed Hanifa.
Standing before the court, she identified Abdulmalik Tanko as her lawfully wedded husband and the second defendant, Hashim, as his friend ever since she knows him.
“He brought the girl to my house and told me that her mother is a teacher in his school and had gotten a job in Saudia Arabia and will be going to Abuja to sign some papers.
“She came with school uniform and school bag. I asked where is her clothes and received her and remove her uniform.
“The following morning till evening I asked him the whereabouts of the mother, he said she did not call but he called and she said the queue was much so she’s not coming back that day.
“She spent the next two days, he said she called and said her money has finished she’s in Kaduna.
“From there I stopped asking him because he said doesn’t have money to come back. The day he brought her she started crying and he then introduced Hanifa to his children Safiya and Aisha. Hanifa is fair, beautiful girl, tall around 5-6 years.”
The case has been adjourned till next week Tuesday.
