Residents of Tamale have mounted a search for a nine-year-old boy who has been missing for two months in the Changli suburb.
Abdul Busobur, is said to have disappeared on July 20, after a trip to his grandfather’s house.
Andani Yakubu, father of the boy told Daily Guide online that he, on the same day the boy went missing, sent him to Arabic school and that usually after school, his son goes to the grandmother’s house which is closer to the school.
According to him, he went to the grandmother’s house alright but after sometime requested permission to visit his grandfather who lived close by. Permission was granted.
