A 12-year-old boy has been found dead in a football field in Katsina state. According to reports, the boy went out to play at the field on Monday and didn’t return home that day. His guardians launched a search for him the next day after declaring missing, only for his corpse to be discovered at the field.
His body was cut open and a rope mark spotted around his neck which suggested he was strangled or tied up before he was gruesomely killed. His vital organs were still intact, according to reports.
