09 September 2016, 07:20

Kano - A Kano Magistrates’ Court sitting in Noman’s land again on Thursday refuses bail to the two suspects who allegedly brutalised 2-year-old minor in Kano on May 10.

Chief Magistrate Maryam Sabo, in her ruling, ordered that the two suspects Hafsatu Musa, 35, and Zainab Murtala, 20, be remanded in prison custody.

Sabo ordered the prosecutor to send back the case diary to the Kano State criminal investigation department for further investigation.

She said there was need for the police to produce the medical treatment report of the victim after undergoing treatment.

The magistrate said the case diary was incomplete without the medical report.
