The woman reportedly abducted the deceased for the purpose of collecting a sum of N2 million from her husband.
An uncontrolled jealousy has led to the arrest of a woman named Wasilla Abdullahi, who is reportedly responsible for the abduction of her stepson who died under captivity.

Muhammad Alhassan, a State Security Service director in Kano State, confirmed the report according to the Premium Times News. He mentioned that the agency received a complaint from Ahmad Kofar Ruwa, the father of the deceased.

She had planned on using the the deceased as a means of obtaining a sum of N2 million from her husband. This agenda however failed, it might earn her a jail term.
