The House further condemned the dastardly act as it called for justice for the victim.

These resolutions were reached sequel to a motion of national urgent importance sponsored by Mr. Kabiru Idris (Kano, APC) and seconded by Mr. Benjamin Mzondu (PDP, Benue).

Idris noted that the gruesome act came to the fore on January 20th, 2021. He appreciated the efforts of the Kano State government and the security agencies for the ongoing investigations.

“There is need for relevant authorities to ensure that justice is done and seen to be done, in order to deter other would-be assailants from towing the same path,” he said.

On his part, the Speaker of the House, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila stated that he was able to talk to the father of late Hanifa and that the situation is indeed worrisome. He prayed for the repose of her soul and that God should grant the family the strength to bear the loss.

The motion overwhelmingly got the support of the lawmakers when the presiding officer, Femi Gbajabiamila, put the question and it was referred to the House Committee on Justice and other relevant Committees to ensure full compliance.
