Reports say that the corpse was discovered by a farmer, returning from his farm, and who alerted passers-by.

 

Eye witness accounts as at the time of filing this report indicated that the girl returned from Islamiyya school on Sunday at around 11 am, changed into her playing clothes, and went out to play in the neighbourhood until her mother discovered that she had not returned.

 

“The search for the girl began and she was found dead at a burial ground in the area by a farmer with sand all over her body”, a source, who sought anonymity, said.

 

Effort made to speak with Amaratu Ya’u, the mother of the victim, failed because she was still in shock over what had befallen her daughter.

A source close to the family, however, narrated that Aisha’s mother had raised alarm about her missing daughter an hour after she couldn’t find her, and this attracted neighbours who joined in the search for the missing girl.

News Agency Of Nigeria (NAN)  also  recalled that on June 28, while locals were in their houses due to the COVID-19 lockdown, a similar incident involving a minor uncovered the corpse of a little girl left at a Mosque in the same area. Her killer(s) are yet to be apprehended till date.

 

Reacting to the incident, the Commissioner, Ministry of Human Services and Social Development, Hajiya Hafsat Baba, expressed sadness over the development, while calling on the Police to deploy all available resources to apprehend the perpetrators of these heinous crimes occurring repeatedly in the same community.

“Right thinking Kaduna people are very sad about this unfortunate development”, she said, adding, “These criminals are still on rampage but they must be stopped. I am calling on the Commissioner of Police in Kaduna, CP Muri Umar, to help us get to the bottom of this’’, Baba said.

Spokesman of the Kaduna Police Command, ASP Muhammed Jalige, who confirmed the discovery of the corpse of the little girl, cautioned against attributing her death to defilement.

He said Police had already obtained a Coroner’s Form duly signed by a Magistrate’s Court to enable the hospital to carry out series of examination on the girl’s corpse.

” After the examination, the hospital can then release the corpse to the parents for burial”, he said.
