A boy kidnapped from his parent’s home in a Kaduna suburb has been found dead, seven days after he was taken.
Sources close to the parents said N5 million ransom had been paid to the kidnappers for his release only for a search party to find his lifeless body in Kano.
Muhammad Kabir, taken from Badarawa suburb of Kaduna North local government area, is believed to have been killed by his kidnappers.
His body was found in drainage in Kano after a weeklong search, and returned to Kaduna to be buried on Saturday.
Sources in the area believe a neighbour connived with another resident, ex-military personnel, to kidnap the boy.
