Police Docks 24-year-old For Kidnapping, Killing Of Girl In Kano


The Kano State police public relations officer, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, has said that the State Police Command has arrested a 24-year-old Habibu Sale, who kidnapped and allegedly killed an eight-year-old Asiya Tasiu of Chikawa village in Gabasawa local government area of the state, after collecting a ransom of N500,000.

DSP Kiyawa, who spoke on behalf of the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Habu A. Sani, said the incident happened on June 5, 2020 but police effected Sale’s arrest on November 7, in front of his house after keeping a close surveillance on him.

Police investigations revealed that Sale killed the girl after collecting the ransom and buried her in a shallow grave on the outskirts of Chikawa village to cover his crime because the victim who lived in the same vicinity with him, could recognise and possibly expose him.
