A Suya seller identified as Alliu Abdulahi, 35, has been arrested by men of the Lagos state police command on grounds that he attempted to kill a 4-year-old girl for meat.
the arrested suspect was alleged to have abducted the young girl while she was playing with her peers on an open field at the White sand area of Ebute Meta, Lagos.
However, as the Suya seller took the girl to a secluded area attempting to slaughter her, he was caught by a man who raised an alarm leading to his capture.
Speaking on the arrest, the Police Commissioner in the state, Fatai Owoseni, stated that the Good Samaritans succeeded in rescuing the young girl from captivity. He further revealed that the man who raised the alarm sustained injuries while calling for help.
The Police Commissioner said: “The suspect was subsequently handed over to the Police at Denton Police Station, Oyingbo.
Police investigation revealed that the suspect had abducted the little girl from where she was playing with her friends with the sole intention of slaughtering her. It is a clear case of kidnap and attempted murder. “The child has been reunited with her mother, while the kidnapper and would-be murderer will be arraigned in court.”
