The State Security Service has arrested a woman and two others following the recovery of the corpse of her six-year-old step-son from the hideout of suspected kidnappers in Kano. 

.

.

The Kano state director of the agency, Muhammad Alhassan, said they were arrested after the recovery of the body on Tuesday last week. The suspects are Wasilla Abdullahi and two 23-year-old men identified as Abubakar Maikudi and Mai Shuaibu.

Maikudi is said to be married to the sister of the deceased boy. According to the SSS chief, the agency was informed of the kidnap of the boy on Sunday last week by his father, Ahmad Kofar Ruwa, after he could not raise the ransom demanded by the suspects. 

.

.

The boy was allegedly seized at the front of his parents’ home, the previous Saturday and taken to an uncompleted building in the area which the suspected kidnappers used as their hideout. 

.

.

According to Mr. Alhassan, the alleged leader of the kidnap operation, Mr. Maikudi, muzzled and tied up the boy and hid him behind building blocks in the uncompleted building. 

.

.

He said the suspect claimed that the boy was kidnapped with the connivance of Mrs. Abdullahi, one of the wives of the victim’s father, who he said was aggrieved by alleged neglect of her own kids by her husband. 

.

.

Mr. Alhassan said Mr. Maikudi claimed that the woman told him they could extract a huge ransom from her husband, but the boy died while they were still negotiating the N2m ransom.
