He said that the corpse was evacuated and taken to Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital Kano.
The PPRO said the body was later identified to be that of the eight-year-old girl who was earlier kidnapped at Tudun Wada, Nassarawa Local Government Area of the state.
Haruna called on the public to always report any incident, suspicious persons or movement promptly to the nearest police station.
He said that the state’s Commissioner of Police, Mr Ahmed Iliyasu, had directed that the remaining fleeing suspects be tracked and arrested, adding that the arrested ones would be charged to court after investigations.
