In Spite Of Paying N6m Ransom, Body Of Kidnapped Kano Businessman Found Decomposing

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

In spite of coughing up N6 million to his abductors, 39-year-old Kano businessman, Yahaya Hassan Musa, has been found dead and decomposing in a forest.

The victim was abducted last Thursday around a forest in Mopa, Kogi State, while returning from a business trip in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

The abductors of the deceased, who is said to a father-of-two kids, reportedly demanded N10m, but later agreed to N6m.

Late Yahaya’s brother, Abubakar Hassan Musa reportedly took the N6m to the kidnappers in their hideout.

He said his brother used to fly whenever he travelled, but that on fateful trip, he decided to return by road.

“The kidnappers requested that I should take the money to a forest in Kabba.

“I went and delivered the money in cash. They then directed me to a place where I would meet him, but I did not meet him. I slept in the forest alone.

“The following day, I continued searching until a woman, who was kidnapped alongside my brother, called me and said they killed him before even collecting the ransom, but that she didn’t know where they dumped his body.

“I went back to the nearby town and hired hunters to get back into the forest and search for the corpse.

“After trekking many kilometers, we found his decomposing corpse,” he lamented amid tears.

He said because they couldn’t find a bus to convey the decomposing corpse, they had to buried him in the forest according Islamic rites after proper consultation with the family in Kano.
