A record of suicide incidents in Nigeria reveals that more men took their own life in 2021.
The record which was based on incidents of suicide reported in the media last year shows that majority of the victims were male.
Proprietor of Noble Kids Nursery and Primary School, Kawana, Kano, Abdulmalik Tanko, has narrated how he used a N100 rat poison to end the life of one of his pupils, Daily Trust reports.
Recall that the media had reported how Hanifa Abubakar, a five-year-old pupil of the school, was kidnapped while on her way from Islamiyya School in December and subsequently killed.
Tanko had demanded a N6 million ransom from the parents of the child and in the process of collecting part of the money, he was arrested.
He had failed to disclose that the victim had been killed.
When he was arrested at the Kano Police Command headquarters on Friday, he told journalists that he poisoned the girl with a rat poison that he bought for N100.
