A 7-year-old boy who was declared missing has been found dead, with his throat slit.
The young boy was declared missing in the Tundun Pera area of Jos Local Government Area of Plateau state.
The deceased, identified as Abdul Ahad Nasiru, was reported to have been seen last around 2 pm on Thursday, September 23, when he returned from an errand, and he went out again.
His dead body was later found at Rimi River in Angwan Rogo with his throat slit on Friday morning, September 24.
One Bello Lukmon of Unity FM 93.3 said:
“A frantic search was launched in the area to no avail. His corpse was found this morning in a stream in Angwan Rogo after the heavy rain. He was slaughtered in the neck, similar to what happened in the same area last year. Reports say he might have been dumped somewhere in the area and the flood took him to the stream in Angwan Rogo. This is satanic, hellish, beastly, and barbaric. May God expose perpetrators of this dastard act. Ameen” Bello wrote.
