He said the six-year-old was allegedly killed by the 16 year-old Almajiri, simply identified as Abdullahi.

Gumel said Abdullahi, who hails from Zamfara State, was sighted at Kanwa village by a good Samaritan while in possession of a blood-stained knife strongly suspected to be human blood.

Upon searching, he said the headless body of Saidu was found in a nearby primary school.
