Sanusi Haliru, a student affairs officer at Abdu Gusau Polytechnic Talat-Mafara, Zamfara State, was assassinated and buried by suspected bandits, who then demanded a ransom of four million naira from his family.

Haliru was kidnapped along the Abuja-Kaduna Road en route to an Abuja pre-NYSC mobilisation workshop. The kidnappers called his family and wanted a ransom of N4 million for his release, but the funds were unavailable at the moment.

Mohammed Nasir, a relative of the deceased, told Punch that after raising the N4 million, the family called the bandits and asked where to pay the ransom.

“Their leader gave us a specific place and told us that somebody would be there to receive the money. When we arrived at that place, we could not see anybody. Then suddenly, we saw some people coming in our direction on a motorcycle and immediately they arrived, they asked us to produce the money. We handed over the money to them and one of them told us that our brother had since passed away.

We demanded the dead body so that we could organise his funeral prayers, but to our dismay, they told us that he died long ago and his remains had been buried. They moved to their hideout and left us in a state of serious dilemma” Nasir said
