Damongo Police holding five persons in connection with alleged kidnapping case

Police in Damongo are investigating a case of attempted kidnapping of a 14 year old boy by five persons at Singa, a village near Daboya.

The suspects were arrested and kept in the Singa Chiefs palace by some residents. Police proceeded to Singa where the suspects were identified as Alhassan Abdulai 18yrs, Alidu Toufic 25yrs, Osman Rashid 19yrs, Amidu Hafiz 20yrs and Amadu Abdulhak 21yrs all weavers from Daboya.

Northern Regional Police PRO, DSP Yussif Tanko said the five suspects have denied the offence, but two admitted going to the village on two motorbikes at about 6pm on June 23, 2019 to look for a white guinea fowl for their group rituals at Tali No1 near Daboya.

The Police narrated that, the five accused persons asked the victim Gafaru Tonga 14 years  to show them a Fulani settlement in the village where they could get the guinea fowl, but could not get the guinea fowl and returned to the village Tali No 1 where they had the guinea fowl and performed the rituals.

The victim also stated that the suspects carried him on a motorbike to show them the Fulani settlement but failed to stop on reaching the Fulani settlement and as a result he jumped from the motorbike and raised an alarm.

The five suspects later went into hiding until about 10 pm when they saw them on three motorbikes passing to Daboya and were apprehended to the Chiefs house.

All the five suspects have been detained at Damongo for further investigations.
