On Saturday, criminal elements in Kano, abducted Hanifa Abubakar, a five-year-old girl.
She was abducted around 5:00 pm in the Kawaji area by men who lured her into their tricycle.
According to the girl’s uncle, Suraj Zubair, she was abducted shortly after she returned from an Islamic school along with other neighbours.
He said- “The distance from her home to the Islamiyya school is not far. So children normally trek to the school in group on their own.
“According to the account of some children who witnessed the incident, the kidnappers came in a tricycle and offered to hitchhike them to their home. After dropping them off, they then asked Hanifa to enter again for an extra ride, and then zoomed off with her.
“I want to use this medium to call on those who have any useful information about the whereabouts of Hanifa to contact the nearest police station or call this number,” he said.
