8-year-old Girl, Asmau Kidnapped And Later Murdered By Her Neighbor In Kaduna
A eight-year-old girl identified simply as Asmau was kidnapped and later killed by her neighbour in Kaduna state.
It was gathered that Asmau who spent 42 days in the hands of her abductors was said to be kidnapped by one of their neighbors on 9th December 2021.
Speaking in an interview, her father, Alh Shuaibu Wa’alamu told newsmen in Zaria at the weekend how she was abducted.
“My daughter was abducted on the 9th December and when she failed to return home, I lodged a formal complaint with the police.
“After some days, the abductors began to call my number and demanded N15million. But we negotiated and I first gave them N2million.
“They collected the money in Rigasa area of Kaduna. Later, they called me again and demanded another N1.045million as the only condition to release my daughter.
“I did not argue. But I gave the money to them.”
“However, after paying the ransom as demanded on the 19th of January, they called me to tell me they kill her and switch off the phone.
“You see since from the initial stage, I was following her abductors and doing their bidding because of the fear of losing her. 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 declared.
As of the time of filing the report, the police have not confirmed the incident.
