Residents of Unguwar Dan Dinshe in Dala local government area of Kano state were thrown into deep shock and sorrow over the disappearance of a four year old boy Musa, who was alleged to have been kidnapped by a 9 year old boy named Abubakar.

Narrating the incident the Director General of the Kano state hisbah board Dr. Aliyu Musa Aliyu Kibiya, said the parents of the boy lodged a complain concerning their missing son who was last seen with Abubakar before his disappearance and all efforts to trace his whereabouts proved abortive.

He explained that, Abubakar was arrested alongside his parents when hisbah personnel who specialize in such cases commenced investigation to unravel the truth behind the mistery as the master mind behind the kidnapping claimed he handed the young boy to one Malam, who was immediately arrested.

Meanwhile, after five days of intensive scrutiny and investigation, Abubakar told the hisbah officials that he had lied about taking Musa to the Malam, saying he had dumped the four year old boy into a large pit at kofar Dawanau.

Dr. Kibiya said as luck was on their side, the four year old Musa was found alive at ‘gidan mai Unguwar Dawanau.

He charged residents of Dan Dinshe to remain calm as the agency would not relent in it’s efforts of eradicating all forms of vices and protecting the lives and properties of Kano citizen’s

Abubakar’s father Malam Abdullahi who spoke to radio Nigeria, commended hisbah officials for their dedication and commitment and promised to be more vigilant to avoid future occurrence.

A higyly emotional Malam Babangida who is the father of the four year old Musa expressed his gratitude to Allah (SWT) for making it possible to see his son alive.
