It was collected that the girl just recognized Amina as gone last Thursday 10 June. Her corpse at a neighborhood residence was subsequently discovered hidden under a chair.
The main suspect Aminu intended to abduct the girl together with his two buddies and asked N2m from her father. It was found out.
In an interview with journalists, the father of the deceased, Tukur Dan Ali said Aminu approached him with a letter he claimed to be from his daughter’s abductors demanding a ransom of N2m to avoid her being killed.
“Later, Aminu, my nephew, approached me with a letter and said it was from the kidnappers. In the letter, the kidnappers said Amina was still alive but if I fail to provide N2 million they would kill her,” Dan Ali narrated.
He said after he had presented the letter to the police, his nephew was invited to explain how he came about the letter and that was how he became a suspect.
On how the corpse was discovered, Dan Ali said it was not Aminu, who was with the police then, who gave them the clue, rather they decided to check a relative house whose keys were in Dan Ali’s custody, and Aminu was seen using the house lately.
“When we entered the house, there was a noticeable stench but as we searched from one room to another we found where the odor was coming from. When we moved in, we found Amina’s dead body stuck in a three sitter,” he said.
The case has since been transferred to the State Command, where Aminu and his two accomplices are being interrogated.
