The promising life of a 12-year-old boy has been cut short after some alleged criminals cut open his stomach.
A 12-year-old boy who went missing has been found dead in a football field in Katsina state.
It was gathered that the boy went out to play at the field on Monday and didn’t return home that day. His guardians launched a search for him the next day after declaring him missing, only for his corpse to be discovered at the field.
His body was cut open and a rope mark spotted around his neck which suggested he was strangled or tied up before he was gruesomely killed. His vital organs were still intact, according to reports.
The police deposited the corpse at the mortuary after they were notified of the sad incident. The incident has left residents in fear as they wonder who could have murdered the boy.
