Sadiq Abdullahi Bindawa a 33 years old DSS operative has been killed in Katsina state.
The deceased,who worked with the DSS Intelligence Department in Abuja, was kidnapped on Saturday at his residence behind federal secretariat in Katsina metropolis.
Late Bindawa alongside his fours years old son, according to credible family sources, were in Katsina last Friday to spend the weekend when he was abducted.
His abductors were said to have initially demanded N13 million as ransom but later agreed to N5 million for his freedom after many pleas. Abdullahi’s family took the money to where the kidnappers promised only to meet the body of the DSS officer.
The Police are yet to make a statement on the tragic incident.
According to a family source:
“He was about entering his residence behind federal secretariat on Saturday night at about 10:30pm after returning from our family house when the kidnappers forcefully removed him from his car after beating his security guard to coma. We reported the incident to Batagarawa police station but nothing was done. “We took the N5 million to them on Sunday in Charanchi as negotiated. After the payment, they said we should go and receive him in Kurfi town on Monday morning. But when we reached there, we met his dead body with multiple gunshots on his head, ears and back. We buried him yesterday (Monday).”
