Suspected kidnappers have killed Hanifa Abubakar, a five year old Kano girl despite collecting the staggering sum of six million naira from the family.
According to Daily Nigerian, her uncle, Suraj Suleiman confirmed the killing and recovery of her remains at a private school in Tudunwada area of Kano state.
According to Suleiman, the kidnapper first took her to his wife, but the wife rejected to keep her.
“The kidnapper first took Hanifa to his wife, but the wife refused to keep her. He then took her to Tudunwada where he operates a private school, and then laced her tea with rat poison,” her uncle said.
“After she was poisoned to death, the kidnappers then cut her body into pieces and buried it within the school.”
The abductors were arrested around Zaria Road in Kano last night while attempting to collect the second tranche of the ransom.
The 5-year-old was whisked away on December 4, 2021 by the kidnappers, who came in a commercial tricycle and lured her to enter for a joyride.
The incident occurred at 5pm when she and other neighbourhood children were returning from an Islamic school.
