Suspected kidnappers have abducted a 5-year-old girl identified as Hanifa Abubakar, at Kawaji, in Nasarawa Local Government Area of Kano State.
It was gathered that the pupil was abducted by the kidnappers who came in a commercial tricycle.
According to Daily Nigerian, the incident occurred at 5 pm, on Saturday, December 4, when she and other neighborhood children were returning from an Islamic school.
“The distance from her home to the Islamiyya school is not far. So children normally trek to school in groups on their own,” said her uncle, Suraj Zubair.
According to the account of some children who witnessed the incident, the kidnappers offered to hitchhike them to their homes.
After dropping them off, they then asked Hanifa to enter again for an extra ride and then zoomed off with her.
