Sanusi Halilu, the abducted Abdu Gusau Polytechnic Lecturer in Zamfara State, who doubles as the Student Affairs Officer of the school has been killed by his abductors after payment of N5 million ransom for his release.
It was gathered that Sanusi Halilu was killed after five weeks in captivity.
According to some sources, N5million ransom was paid to the bandits on Tuesday in a bush near some villages along Kaduna – Zaria road, in Kaduna State.
However, the bandits confirmed his death less than 24 hours after the payment of the ransom, proving that he was in fact dead long before the negotiations for his release were concluded.
Sanusi was kidnapped alongside others on his way to Abuja for NYSC Mobilisation of the polytechnic students.
