Body of KUST student declared missing found at excavation site


The lifeless body of Ahmad Abubakar Idris, a 300 level student of the Kano University of Science and Technology (KUST), Wudil, has been found in a sand excavation site five days after he was reported missing by his family.

According to reports, the 22-year-old student of the Department of Physics went missing on Saturday, May 1, 2021, when he left the university campus with two colleagues to a market in Kano (Farm Centre) to buy a mobile phone.

His corpse was later found at a sand excavation site in Mariri at the outskirts of Kano after the police arrested one of the colleagues who were with him before he went missing.

The father of the deceased, Abubakar Idris, said his son’s colleagues were suspected to have killed him because of the money in his possession.
