The 11-year-old boy, Abubakar Dahiru, was allegedly kidnapped by the suspect while the boy was roaming the street in Fagge Quarters of Kano Metropolis on Wednesday night.
State Commandant of the vigilante group, Muhammad Kabir Alhaji, said the suspect was arrested during a routine patrol.
“Members of our team were on routine patrol in Fagge quarters at about 11.30pm, when the suspect who is about 28 years old approached them with an 11-old-year old boy. When he was asked where they are going, he said he was a stranger looking for a hotel and the boy was guiding him to a hotel at Kofar Mazugal,” Alhaji said.
“Not satisfied with the explanation, our men asked the boy whether the information given by the man was correct. The boy answered in the negative, saying he does not know the man, that it was the first time they met and that he doesn’t know where they are going”.
“When he was interrogated again, he confessed to have kidnapped the boy and was about to take him to Zaria where he will sell him to his client at N20,000,” Alhaji said.
The suspect, Hassan Kabiru, confessed   to Weekly Trust that he kidnapped the boy. “I was given N20, 000 as a deposit by a client in Zaria to bring him a teenage boy.  After I arrived Kano, I met the boy stranded near a mosque. I asked him to follow me with the intent that in the morning we will proceed to Zaria.
Asked if he was mentally sound, Kabiru answered in the affirmative and added that the little Abubakar Dahiru was his third victim.
An official of the Kano State office of National Agency for the Prohibition ofTrafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), who did not want his name in print, said the suspect was in their custody and investigation was on-going to find the other children and the suspect’s conspirators.
