Dead pregnant lady reported missing in Zamfara
A pregnant woman, Mrs Naja’atu Abdulahi, who was believed to have been kidnapped by armed bandits in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State, has been found dead.
According to reports, the woman was declared missing on Thursday, September 7, after she left her home.
A relative of the deceased woman, Musa Mohammed, told DAILY POST that her corpse was buried according to Islamic rites on Thursday afternoon.
“It is believed that she might have been kidnapped because, on that day, kidnappers stormed their area located on the outskirts of the town behind the College of Health Technology, Tsafe.
“Her husband and relatives then resolved to wait for a call from her abductors but no one was contacted.
“A woman passing by around the area sensed an irritating smell. When she checked, she discovered a dead human body. She quickly ran and alerted the people around the area.
“Finally it was discovered that it was the dead body of Naja’atu with many cuts and injuries around her body. Unfortunately, she was pregnant because she got married few months ago,” Mohammed lamented.
When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the Zamfara State Police Command, ASP Yazid Abubakar, confirmed the incident, saying the matter is being investigated.
“We received the report but we are not aware of the cause of her death. We have commenced investigation,” he said.
