Today, Abdumalik Tanko, a suspect in the kidnapping and murder of 5-year-old Hanifa Abubakar, told the court that he does not have a lawyer and begged the federal government to give him one.

Last month, the Nigerian Police arrested 3 suspects for the kidnapping and killing of Hanifa Abubakar after they discovered her body at Northwest Preparatory School in Kano City.

Hanifa Abubakar’s school proprietor appeared in court with two other suspects, but as the suspect and the others did not have lawyers, the case could not carry on as many had expected.
