A 33-year-old operative of the Department of State Services DSS, Sadiq Bindawa, has been killed by suspected kidnappers in Katsina State even after collecting N5 million ransom from his friends and relatives.
According to a news report, the late Bindawa was abducted on Saturday, September 12, few hours after he arrived Katsina from Abuja where he worked.
An eyewitness said that the kidnappers may have trailed him to his house located behind the Federal Secretariat Complex, Dandagoro area, Katsina around 10.30 p.m.
The kidnappers first attacked the private security guards at the entrance of the building before whisking Bindawa off to an unknown place.
It was further learnt that the kidnappers later contacted his family and friends through his phone and demanded N13million ransom. It was later reduced to N5m but Bindawa’s corpse was discovered at Kurfi town on Sunday morning after the payment was made.
“We went to Kurfi on Sunday hoping to pick him as directed but we saw only his corpse with parts of the body riddled with bullets. We reported the incident at the Batagarawa Police Station.” a friend said.
