The corpse of a three-year-old child, known as Aminu Bukar, who was declared missing on Jan. 14 in Guri Local Government Area (LGA) of Jigawa State has been discovered.

Confirming the development, Police Public Relations (PPRO) in the state, ASP Lawan Shiisu, in a statement on Friday, said the father of the deceased, Alhaji Bukar, had earlier reported to the police that his child went missing at about 4:00 pm in Dolen Zugu Village on the same date.

He said on the receipt of the report, a team of policemen swung into action and later discovered Aminu’s corpse at Tudun Mai Jambo bush, about one kilometers from the village.

The PPRO said Aminu was rushed to the hospital and certified dead by a medical doctor.

He said a police investigation concluded that there was no foul play in the boy’s death.

Shiisu added that the corpse was later released to the relatives for burial.

Although, there was no foul play according to Police source, this development is coming days after the gruesome murder of a five-year-old Hanifa by a School Proprietor in Kano.
