Parading the suspects in Abuja on Wednesday, the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, said the abduction was carried out on November 2, 2020, in Gabije community of Kogi State
The Nigeria Police Force has paraded some suspected kidnappers for killing a six-year-old girl after demanding ₦8 million ransom from the victim’s family.
Also paraded were some suspected armed robbers and cattle rustlers.
The suspects were said to have been positively linked through investigations by the Force Intelligence Bureau.
Mba told journalists that the girl was kidnapped alongside her 14-year-old brother, noting that while the teenager brother was said to have escaped from the abductors, the girl, however, could not survive as she was killed by her captors and buried in a shallow grave.
Channels Television learned that the victim’s parents could not afford the ₦8m ransom and were trying to negotiate the amount before involving the police authorities.
Of the 25 suspects paraded today is one of the kidnappers, Friday Domozu, who was said to have led the abductors in carrying out the crime.
