Teenager abducts, kills 3-year-old cousin in Katsina
A 3 year-old girl kidnapped, killed by her cousin in Katsina
A 3 Years old Girl is Suspected to have been Kidnapped and killed by her Cousin in Dutsinma Town of Katsina State.
The girl, simply identified as Amina was declared missing by her parents last Thursday before her dead body was found in a neighborhood house concealed in a chair.
However, Katsina Post learnt that a cousin to the girl, a teenager too, identified as Aminu along with his two friends, are the primary suspects who are believed to have masterminded her abduction and subsequent murder.
In an interview with journalists, the father of the deceased, Tukur Dan Ali said Aminu approached him with a letter presumed from his daughters kidnappers demanding for a ransom of N2m to avoid her being killed.
“Later, Aminu, my nephew, approached me with a letter and said it was from the kidnappers. In the letter, the kidnappers said Amina was still alive but if I fail to provide N2 million they would kill her,” Dan Ali said.
He said after he had presented the letter to the police, his nephew was invited to explain how he come about the letter “and that was how he became a suspect.”
On how the corpse was discovered, Dan Ali said it was not Aminu, who was with the police then, who gave them the clue, rather they decided to check a relative house whose keys were in Dan Ali’s custody and Aminu was seen using the house lately.
“When we entered the house, there was a noticeable stench but as we searched from one room to another we found where the odour was coming from. When we moved in, we found Amina’s dead body stuck in a three setter,” he said.
The case has since been transferred to the State Command, where Aminu and his two accomplices are being interrogated.
