Police begin investigation into beheading of minor in Kano

The Kano State Police Command has launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the alleged beheading of a minor, Mohammed Saidu, by an Almajiri at Kanwa village in Madobi Local Government Area of ​​the state.

State police chief Usaini Gumel told reporters in Kano on Friday that six-year-old Saidu was allegedly killed by a 16-year-old almajiri who simply called himself Abdullahi.

He said Abdullahi, originally from Zamfara, was seen by a good Samaritan in Kanwa village carrying a knife covered in blood, which was strongly suspected to be human blood.

He said Saidu's headless body was found at a nearby elementary school.

He said the suspect was then taken to the village chief's house to prevent him from being lynched.

However, an angry mob reportedly overpowered the village chief and attacked the suspect, seriously injuring him.

When police arrived, the suspect confessed to the crime and said he had dumped the victim's head in a pit toilet adjacent to the elementary school.

He said the suspect was taken to Kwankwaso Cottage Hospital, where he died during treatment.

The head of the state police said the victim's body was recovered and transported to a hospital for examination, after which it was released to relatives for burial.
