The Police Command in Kano state says it has arrested a 19-year-old woman, Mariya Suleiman of Badawa Quarters, Kano for allegedly stabbing her 30-year-old brother, Sani Suleiman to death.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Abdullahi Haruna, disclosed this in a statement in Kano. He said the incident occurred on July 6, at about 8 p.m. at Badawa Quarters, Kano.
Haruna said that preliminary investigations revealed that Mariya and the victim had a misunderstanding and in the process, she stabbed him to death.
“The misunderstanding occurred when the victim ordered that the music going on during the marriage ceremony of one of their sisters be stopped which Mariya resisted. In the process of the argument, she used a knife and stabbed him on his neck,” the PPRO said.
He said the victim was rushed to the Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Hospital, Kano, where he was confirmed dead.
Haruna said the state’s Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, ordered that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for discreet investigation.
