An operative of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Katsina, Sadiq Abdullahi Bindawa has been murdered by bandits after a ransom of N5 million was paid on him.
It was gathered that the late Bindawa worked with the intelligence department of the service in Abuja.
He was, however, kidnapped along with his four-year-old son over the weekend at his residence in Katsina.
A source revealed to SaharaReporters that the bandits demanded N5 million ransom which was paid with the help of his family members and colleagues.
The money was taken to Charanchi area of the state on Sunday and the negotiators were told to go and receive him in Kurfi town on Monday morning.
“But when they got to Kurfi as agreed, they met his dead body with multiple gunshots on his head, ears and back. He was buried this morning according to Islamic rights,” the source said.
