After collecting almost N3 million in ransom in Zaria 42 days after her kidnapping, abductors killed eight-year-old Asma’u.
The event occurred only 48 hours after Hanifa AAbubaka, a five-year-old girl from Kano, was kidnapped and poisoned by her teacher.
On December 9, 2021, Asma’ u was reported to have been kidnapped by one of her neighbors.
Alh Shuaibu Wa’alamu, the deceased’s father, told newsmen in Zaria how his daughter was kidnapped.
“My daughter was taken on December 9th, and when she did not come home, I filed an official complaint with the police,” he stated.
“After some days, the abductors began to call my number and demanded for N15m. But we negotiated and I first gave them N2m.
“They collected the money in Rigasa area of Kaduna. Later, they called me again and demanded for another N1. 045m as the only condition to release my daughter. I did not argue. But I gave the money to them.
“You see since from the initial stage, I was following her abductors and doing their bidding because of the fear of losing my daughter. Now, they have killed her.
“I know those who abducted her and killed her. They are around us. I have strong evidence. I have told the police. And they are on it. In fact, the suspects have been arrested,” he said.
Kaduna Police Command confirmed the incident.
The Command’s spokesman, ASP Muhammed Jalige, said investigations were ongoing on the incident.
But Jalige could not immediately confirm the arrest of the suspect.
He said: “What I can tell you right now is that investigation are ongoing. I have to get across to our men in Zaria, then details of the incident will be released later.”
