The Police Command in Kaduna State has announced the arrest of four suspects, who allegedly kidnapped and murdered a six-year-old boy.

A statement signed, Monday, by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Muhammad Jalige and made available to newsmen in Kaduna said the suspects would be charged to court for criminal conspiracy, kidnapping and culpable homicide.

According to the statement, one Alhaji Kabiru Magayaki, reported that his son Mohammed Kabiru was abducted on April 24, 2021 and that the abductors demanded N30 million as ransom to secure the release of the boy.

The negotiating parties however, agreed for the sum of One Million Naira (N1,000,000.00) which the family obliged and paid but could not secure the freedom of the victim, the statement said.

On receipt of the complaint, the Commissioner of Police immediately ordered for a full-scale investigation and the SIB Operatives swung into action and succeeded in arresting four (4) suspects, namely; Sani Adamu a.k.a Galadima 36yrs of No. H3 Mashi Street, Badarawa Kaduna, Umar Mainasara 32yrs of Sheik Jaafar Street Kawo New-Extension Kaduna.

Others are Muhammadu Nazifi 25yrs of Musa Yakubu Crescent Badarawa, Kaduna and Amina Ahmed 53yrs of No. 1221 Sharada, Kano in a carefully coordinated and intelligence based investigative approach.

The arrest equally led to the recovery of the sum of Eight Hundred and Forty Thousand Naira (N840, 000.00) been part of the ransom the suspects collected at a location in Zaria.

Further investigation revealed that Mohammad Nazifi who criminally orchestrated the whole abduction saga is a neighbour to the complainant that makes it easier for him to lure the innocent child by sending him on an errand to a location where Sani Adamu was already on ground awaiting to kidnap him to an unknown destination.

Consequently, Mohammed Nazifi on sensing the possibility of the victim revealing his identity after regaining freedom, they decided to strangle him to death and concealed the body in a drain system in the outskirt of Kano Municipal, Kano State.

The statement further revealed that the suspects having confessed to the commission of the dastardly act, led the Police to where the decomposing body of the victim was identified and evacuated to Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital Kano for autopsy.

Investigation is still ongoing with a view to unraveling the identities of all those involved in this unfortunate cum barbaric act, apprehend and bring them to book.

The Commissioner of Police, Kaduna State advise parents and guardians to be more security conscious of their wards as criminals could be lurking around their vicinity waiting to take advantage of familiarization to perpetrate evil, such as this case at hand.
