A 33-year-old operative of the Department of State Services, Sadiq Abdullahi Bindawa, has been killed, after N5m was paid as ransom for his release.

Bindawa, who until his death was serving under the intelligence department of the service in Abuja, was kidnapped with his four-year-old son on Saturday from his residence behind Federal Secretariat in Katsina state.

The bandits, according to sources, were said to have demanded for N5million 48-hours after his abduction, which was raised by his family members and colleagues.

After the rasom was taken to Charanchi area of the state on Sunday, the negotiators were told to go and receive him in Kurfi town on Monday morning.

“But when they got to Kurfi as agreed, they met his dead body with multiple gunshots on his head, ears and back. He was buried this morning according to Islamic rights,” the source said.
