Update: Hanifa Abubakar's killers arraigned in court, case adjourned till Feb 9 (photos)

Tanko and his accomplices were arraigned before the court over the killing of five-year-old Hanifa Abubakar, a pupil in Tanko’s school.

Counsel to the state government led by Aisha Mahmoud applied to the court to adjourn the case to a higher court as the magistrate has no jurisdiction over the case.

Mahmoud said,

“The offences alleged to have been committed by the defendants are not triable by this court, so we are applying for a count charges before the High Court.”

The court has therefore ordered the suspects to be remanded in prison custody before re-arraignment in the next court.
