Hajiya Fatima Kabir Buba described the incident as wicked and inhuman, and further disclosed that the ministry she heads will ensure they get justice for the 14-year old Zainab Dauda. She said;
“This is total wickedness. How would a sane person pour hot water on her fellow human being?
“The Kogi State Government won’t condole this brutality. We are going to follow this case to a logical conclusion and ensure that Zainab Dauda gets justice.” Buba added that the wife of the state governor, Hajiya Rasheedat Bello will leave no stone unturned to ensure that any individual engaging in child battering, molestation of the girl child, child trafficking and other heinous act will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
