When he was arrested at the Kano Police Command headquarters on Friday, he told journalists that he killed her with rat poison that he bought for N100.
“So, I decided that it was better I found a way before I would be caught. I first thought of sending this girl to another state but again, I thought the whole town was aware that she was missing. If the girl was going to be sent out through the main roads, we would be caught. So, that was when I conceived the idea of killing her.
“I picked her up at home; she was already sleeping, it was getting to 11 pm. I picked her up… I used to always drink tea always… I was drinking tea at that time, so I put the remaining tea in an empty container of BoBo yogurt, and then I poured this rat killer poison inside and gave it to the girl, not in my own house.
“When we went to the other school when we were passing, I told her that I was taking her back to her uncle’s house so as we were going, I gave her the drink on the road and she drank it and then we entered one branch of the school, the branches are two. We entered the other branch with her and I told her I was going to pick something inside. She entered and that was where she finally died.
“I bought 100 naira. I buried her in the school. Let me clear this doubt. People are thinking that it has to do with ritual, this is not rituals. I buried her inside the school simply because I was not able to find any secure place to dig a hole,” he narrated.
