Ahmed Abdullahi, who is a 20 year old from Hayin Gada, Zabi, Sabon Gari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has allegedly killed his 14 year old neighbor known as Mohammed Bello, which he kidnapped after receiving N60,000 from the family for the release of the kidnapped boy.

After 18 whole days of Mohammed Bello gone missing, a call was received that they were in possession of his son and was asked to pay five million Naira (N5,000,000.00) for his son’s release.

“We took the matter to our village head and also told the police about it. We gave them the number that we negotiated with the kidnappers and very quickly they tracked him via a text message he sent to someone at Zabi, and he was arrested.

“He took them all the way to Hayin Zabi, called Ahmed Abdullahi that he should come out that they have some Sheikh-visitors from their school, that is how he was arrested.

“He made confessions which he stated that he was the one that kidnapped Mohammed Bello. When he was asked the whereabouts of the boy, he led them to Likoro Area where the dead body of the boy was seen, which was already decomposing.
