Kano State Police Command has arrested three suspects following the death of a five-year-old boy, Ahmad Ado, who was kidnapped from his school at Karkasara Quarters Kano.
Parading the suspects, the Kano State Police Commissioner Ahmed Ilyasu, said the police received a complaint that the boy was kidnapped and were able to arrest, after some investigations, a principal suspect, Ibrahim Ahmed, 28.
In addition, the police also nabbed one Musa Sanusi and Abdulmajid Mohd both aged 18.
Ahmed Ilyasu stated that after interrogation, the suspects confessed to have kidnapped the boy and drugged him which resulted in the boy’s death.
Ado’s remains were buried in a shallow grave at an uncompleted building, the police said.
“They went ahead and buried the body in a shallow grave in an uncompleted building. The scene was visited by experts and the dead body exhumed.
“The police have exhumed the body of the victim and the suspects will be taken to court.
“This is a highest form of inhumanity and the police will not relent in its fight against all forms of criminal activities,” disclosed the police chief.
The father of the victim, Malam Ado, told Daily Trust that the suspects kidnapped his son from the nursery and primary school he attended and they later called him demanding N50 million as the ransom to free his kidnapped son.
“They demanded N50 million, then reduced it to N20 million. We were negotiating till when we arrived at N200,000, not knowing that my son had been killed,” he said.
