Abducted Five Year Old Girl Found Dead In Kano
Despite collecting part of the N6million demanded, the abductors of 5-year-old Kano girl, Hanifa Abubakar, have killed her.
Her uncle, Suraj Suleiman, confirmed the killing and recovery of her remains at a mushroom private school in Tudunwada area of Kano.
According to him, the abductor 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.”
It was gathered that 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.
General Abdulsalami Abubakar Kicks Against Fuel Price Hike
Former Head of state General Abdulsalami Abubakar (Rtd), , has warned against increase in the pump price of fuel.
Nigerians are on the verge of paying more for petrol following the recommendation of the National Economic Council (NEC) that pump price should be pegged at N302 per litre.
But speaking at the 19th Daily Trust Dialogue in Abuja, the former Head of State warned against such move.
“Insecurity in the country is worsened by our dear economic situation. Unemployment and underemployment remain at the high level. Over 18 million Nigerians are still caught up in needless poverty. All of these tend to have negative effects on security. In fact, Nigeria now faces a full security crisis that is confounded by the COVID-19 global pandemic and the banditry in many states in Northern Nigeria.
“Most of these have disrupted the final value change across the country and negatively impacted the ability of Nigeria to produce, process, and distribute.
“There is a continuous rise in the prices of food items beyond the reach of many Nigerians. On top of all these, fuel prices are expected to rise significantly in the coming months as announced last November. We all know that when this happens, it will push many millions of Nigerians into poverty.”
He also spoke on other challenges confronting the country, saying security forces have been overstretched.
“Ladies and gentlemen, Nigeria is once again at crossroads. Insecurity remains the single, most difficult challenges for the country. The Boko Haram insurgency in the North East, banditry in the North West, violence in the South East, kidnappings and abductions of travelers across many states all continue to fester in the land.”
“In addition to these, ethnic, communal and religious conflicts are rearing their head very hardly again in many parts of the country. All of these have greatly challenged and overstretched our security forces. This has caused thousands of deaths and millions of internally displaced persons in the country over the past years”.
