The Kano State Police Command has recovered the decomposed body of an eight-year-old girl, Asiya Tasiu been murdered and buried by a suspected kidnapper Habibu Sale aged 24, after collecting N500,000 ransom.
Information gathered that the suspect kidnapped the deceased on the 6th of June 2020, while she was sent on an errand in her aunty’s place at Chikawa village, Gabasawa LGA.
The DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa confirmed this while briefing the Newsmen at the Command headquarters in Bompai, Kano on Tuesday 17th of November 2020. He said the suspect led a team of medical personnel and detectives to where the victim was buried in shallow ground. The corpse was exhumed and examined the same day and released to the relatives for burial according to Islamic rites.
Though it’s assumed that the suspect perpetrated this evil all alone as he confessed, the Command’s Commissioner of Police CP Habu A. Sani still demanded that Advanced Discreet Investigation be carried out, perhaps more results may roll in and accomplices arrested.
