On the 16th August, 2016 one Habiba Isiyaku was abducted from her school, Government Senior Secondary School Kudun Kankara LGA of Katsina by one Jamilu Lawal of Wawar Kaza in Kankara LGA, Katsina State.
After receiving the news of the abduction of his daughter Habib’s father, Isiyaku Tanko immediately lodge a formal complaint to the Commissioner of Police Katsina state command, urging for swift intervention in the matter.
The Police was later informed by the suspect, Jamilu Lawal after his arrest that the said girl is being kept at the palace of the emir. All efforts by Habib’s father to seek for the release of his daughter including appealing to emir proved abortive.
It has now been confirmed that the emir has married Habiba out to Jamilu Lawal (her abductor) after taking fifty thousand Naira (N50, 000) from him as dowry, claiming that Habiba has converted to Islam, therefore both she and her father can no longer inherit each other.
