His abductors were said to have stormed his home in Katsina, hours after he arrived from Abuja and whisked him away on Saturday 12 September 2020.
An eyewitness told newspot : “They demanded N25 million ransom. His colleagues got in touch with the kidnappers and agreed to drop the ransom at a designated place.
“However the colleagues of the deceased (DSS operatives) ambushed the bandits at the point of collecting the ransom and exchanged fire, which led to the killing of some bandits. The few bandits that escaped went back to their hideout and shot Sadiq dead. They threw his body in the bushes.”
