How Hanifa’s killer was sacked from Kano school 3 years ago

Abdulmalik Mohammed Tanko, the killer of 5-year-old Hanifa Abubakar was reportedly sacked from a private school where he served as teacher and headmaster over alleged misappropriation of funds in Kano state.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that Tanko, the proprietor of Noble Kids Academy Nursery and Primary School, Kwanar Dakata in Nasarawa Local Government of Kano State, was arrested for abducting and killing Hanifa, a pupil of his school.

According to Daily Trust, a resident of Nasarrawa LGA said that Tanko was sacked from Ete Inoh International School, in Tudun Wada before he moved to his present location, where he established his own school.

The aforementioned publication reported that Usman Nuhu (not real name) said Tanko relocated from Tudun Wada to Tudun Murtala which is just a walk away after he was sacked from the school.

Nuhu added the case was settled in one of the police stations in the area.

“After he was sacked from the first school he served as a headmaster on alleged misappropriation of funds, he then settled in Tudun Murtala where he established a school, North West,” he said.

“As the business boomed he now rented a house in Kwanar Dakata in Yankaba and established another school called Nobel Kids Academy Nursery and Primary School from where the kid was abducted.”

According to Nuhu, Tanko left North West under the care of his wife and concentrated on his new school then, Nobel Kids Academy Nursery and Primary School, Kwanar Dakata.

The resident said the embattled school proprietor had difficulty in social interaction and communication.

“Tanko hardly associated with people and neighbours as his house was always locked. He was always quiet and seemed brooding.”
