A five-year-old girl identified as Hanifa Abubakar has reportedly been abducted by kidnappers at Yankaba, Kwanar Dakata Unguwar located at Kawaji in the Nasarawa Local Government Area of Kano State.
It was gathered that the little girl was whisked away to an unknown destination while coming back from an Islamiyya school known as Dahiru Bauchi, on Saturday, December 4, 2021.
Hanifa's uncle, Suraju informed SaharaReporters that the incident occurred around 5 pm, adding that the abductors came in a tricycle, locally called Keke Marwa.
He stated that the unknown abductors promised to give the girl and some other children coming from the Islamiyya school a lift home but she was taken away.
Suraju said the other children who witnessed the incident told him how Hanifa was abducted.
"They closed from school around 5:30 pm; the distance from her home to the Islamiyya school is not far. So children normally trek to the school in groups. After dropping the children off, they then asked Hanifa to enter again for an 'extra' ride, and then zoomed off with her," he said.
At the time of filing this report, Suraju said a report had been filed at the Kano State Police Command.
He said the whereabouts of Hanifa were still unknown and that the kidnappers had yet to contact her family members.
