Father Of 10 Kidnapped & Killed Neighbour’s 5-Year-Old Son When His Demand For A N5m Ransom Was Not Met


43-year-old Saturday Dewakei, has been arrested by the State Security Service for allegedly kidnapping Abubakar Adamu, the five-year-old son of his neighbour and killed him when his demand for a N5m ransom was not met.

Dewakei, who is also a father of 10, was said to have entered his neighbour’s room at Aso ‘C’ Gbagalape, Mararaba area of Abuja through the ceiling on April 19, 2013 and abducted Adamu while he was asleep.


The SSS tendered the remains of the victim on Wednesday [Sept. 18], which were mainly bones, including his ribs, femur, dental cavity and a locally-made pistol that was recovered from the suspect.

The SSS Deputy Director, Operations, FCT Command, Ibrahim Halilu, while parading the suspect yesterday, explained that Dewakei killed the boy in an uncompleted building and dumped his body in a water-filled soakaway when the ransom he demanded was not paid.

He stated that the victim’s father, identified as Isah, paid Dewakei N100,000, adding that the suspect murdered Adamu because he was dissatisfied with the amount.

Halilu stated that Dewakei was apprehended by operatives when he accepted the offer of additional N300,000 after he had killed his victim.

Dewakei, who appealed to Isah for forgiveness, said he kidnapped the boy.

He said:
I did not kill him. The victim was running away and he fell into the soakaway.
I brought him out, but he had died because his hands were tied. The boy died in my arms; the parents should please forgive me. I only kidnapped him to make small money.
