A 10 year old boy was tortured to death by a soldier at Hayin Bakin, Kaduna North Local Government according to Daily Trust.
The boy whose name is Muslim, was said to have went into the Kotoko Barracks to pluck mangos from a tree, which was where he met his waterloo.
Confirming the report, traditional leader in the community, the Sardauna of Hayin Banki, Malam Ibrahim Hadsan Wuyo said, ““The boy who bears the name Muslim went into the Kotoko Barracks which shares a boundary with the Hayin Banki community to pluck mangos from a tree.
“The soldier queried why the boy came into the barracks and the boy was able to run away. The soldier then traced the boy back to the community; he took him back to the barracks and detained him. I was told that while he was torturing the boy, other colleagues warned him to release the boy but he refused.”
The traditional leader said due to the torture, Muslim died and was thrown into Unguwan Kanawa community, by the soldier.
The Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, has confirmed the arrest of the suspect and has assured that full investigation is going on
