The incident occurred in Doguwa Local Government area when a resident reported that his son, Hamza Harisu had been kidnapped and the kidnappers had demanded for N20 million ransom.
According to a Statement released by Police Spokesman in Kano, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, on behalf of Kano State Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Lawal, “On 28/10/2022 at about 17:00 hours, a report was received from a resident of Doguwa Local Government, Kano State that, his son, Hamza Harisu,  5 years old, was kidnapped and a ransom of N20 million was demanded by the kidnapper(s) and later, negotiated at N5 million.
