Two boys below age 10 were allegedly apprehended for kidnapping a baby


Two boys below the age of 10 were allegedly apprehended for abducting a child in the Dan-Bushiya area of Kaduna State. They abducted a child between zero and nine months and tied the baby under a tree in a bushy area close by. 

The boys, whom some vigilante men caught in the area, were about to leave the scene where they had tied the innocent child. When confronted, they said they were learning how to become kidnappers. 

The boys were seen crying in a viral video on X while trying to explain what was happening in the bushy area where they were apprehended. 

Kidnapping has become a regular thing, and children are beginning to enrol themselves in apprenticeships to learn the trade. 

Narrating in Hausa, one of the vigilante men said: “Look at them here; they are small children; they came here and tied this little boy. They were about to run away before we apprehended them.” 

The children in the video said they were from “Dan Bushiya.” An online search showed that the area is located in Kaduna State. Kaduna, particularly Southern Kaduna, has experienced intense attacks by bandits and Fulani Jihadists. It is no wonder children are beginning to nurse kidnapping as an ambition.
