Operatives of the State Security Service (SSS) in Kano, have rescued a three-year-old boy from the hands of the kidnappers.

The service state director, Alhassan Muhammmad, said operatives of the service rescued him after receiving a letter from a lawyer about his abduction on December 8.

Muhammad said the kidnappers lived in the same area with the victim, adding that the suspects initially demanded for a ransom of N20 million before reducing it. He said the family paid N200,000 as ransom to the abductors on December 11.

According to him, operatives recovered part of the cash including a toy gun, knife and mask.
