Teenager allegedly kidnaps and kills his 3-year-old cousin after her father failed to pay N2m ransom

A young teenage boy has been reportedly arrested for the kidnapping and murder of his 3-year-old cousin in the Dutsin-Ma Local Government Area of Katsina State.

The victim identified as Amina was declared missing on Thursday, June 10. Her body was later discovered in a chair around a neighbourhood house.

In an interview with journalists, the father of the deceased, Tukur Dan Ali said that the Aminu approached him with a letter he claimed to be from his daughter’s abductors demanding 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 narrated.

Ali later presented the letter to the police and Aminu was invited to explain how he got the letter.

Narrating on how the corpse was discovered, Dan Ali said they decided to check a relative house. The keys to the house were with Dan Ali but Aminu was the one using the house.

“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 sitter,” he said.

Meanwhile, the case is still under investigation and the suspects have been transferred to the police for further questioning.
