Sister stabs brother to death in Kano

Ted Odogwu, Kano

Tragedy occurred in Kano on Saturday when a teenage mother, identified simply, as Umi, of the Nassarawa Local Government Area of the state, allegedly stabbed her 30-year-old brother to death.

The personnel of the Badawa Police Division arrested Umi, for allegedly stabbing Sani Suleiman, to death following a dispute between them.

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson for the Kano State Police Command, DSP Abdullahi Kiyawa, said the Badawa Police Division received a report around 5pm on Saturday that a teenage mother, identified simply as Umi, had stabbed her brother in the neck.

According to Kiyawa, it was learnt that Umi, who had been engaged in a heated argument with her brother for two days, subsequently stabbed him in the neck, resulting in his death shortly after he was rushed to hospital for treatment.

Kiyawa said an argument ensued between the siblings when the late Sani allegedly flung his sister’s baby, as eyewitnesses claimed that Sani had refused to organise a traditional wedding for two of his sisters. In his reaction, the Ward Head of Unguwan Gaya Badawa, Alhaji Haliru Mohammed, expressed shock over the tragic incident, adding that both parents of the siblings lost consciousness when the news was broken to them and were currently receiving treatment at a nearby hospital.
