Two Arrested for killing 10-year-Old brother in Maiduguri

Policemen attached to the Inspector- General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris’ Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT), have arrested suspected Boko Haram members, who abducted a 10-year-old boy in Maiduguri, Borno State and later stabbed him to death.

The victim, Baa Goni Maina, was abducted on January 14 by 18-year-old Adam Bakura and his brother, Modu Bakura.

He was killed three days later after his father couldn’t cough up the N10 million ransom the brothers demanded. It was learnt that although Maina’s father was comfortable, he was not rich enough to have N10 million. The suspect and deceased lived in the same community.

Police sources said that the boy was tricked away from his street, down to a river bank where he was later abducted. After he was killed, the gang carried his body to a place called Gwange graveyard in Maiduguri town and dumped it there.

A police source said: “Adam has confessed to the killing of Maina. He said he killed the boy because the father couldn’t raise the N10 million ransom the gang demanded. The boy’s father begged them to collect N500,000.

Adam further confessed that he had to stab Maina several times in the stomach to ensure he dies because the boy knew him and would disclose his identity to police if released. He said that he and the boy lived in the same area.”
