The father of the deceased Mr Christopher Adamu, who narrated the story, said the incidence came as a shock to him and his family because Hanatu was a peaceful child and he wonders who would want to harm her.

“On Thursday evening after the children closed from school.

The eldest one came to my place of work in Suntai Hotel and asked me to buy detergent for them to wash their uniforms. So I bought it sent them off and later came home myself.

“I asked them to call their little sister and they told me she was outside just beside the house. They went there to call her and couldn’t find her. That’s when we began searching the entire area for her all evening and night to no avail. I then reported the case to the vigilante, the Jalingo division, and the ward head and came home” he narrated.

Uwujaren further said that the suspects, who had volunteered useful information, would be charged to court on conclusion of investigation.

He said that the EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa has enjoined youths to make hardwork their watchword and shun corruption, as “Yahoo-Yahoo’ is not a sustainable way of life”.

“The fact that the rate of unemployment is high should not be an excuse to resort to crimes.

“Acts of criminality may deliver wealth in the short term, but ultimately there will be misery and gnashing of teeth”, Bawa was qouted as saying.

He assured that the Commission would spare no efforts towards ensuring a corrupt-free Nigeria.(NAN)
