Kano State Police Command has arrested a girl identified as Marariya Sulaiman for stabbing her brother, Mallam Sani Sulaiman, to death for trying to stop her from having a party at their Badawa residence in the state.
According to reports, trouble allegedly started when Sani told her not to erect a DJ stand in front of their house ahead of their younger sister’s wedding yesterday.
Their disagreement later degenerated into a fight and Marariya allegedly stabbed the deceased to death.
The command spokesman, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, who confirmed the incident said:
“We received a report that one Sani Sulaiman ‘M’ 30 years old of Badawa Quarters Kano was found lying in a pool of blood in their compound after a stab by his sister one Mariya Sulaiman ‘F’ 19years old, when the family was celebrating the marriage of a sibling.
“Police immediately rushed to the scene and took the victim to Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Hospital where he was confirmed dead. The Suspect was arrested at the scene and preliminary investigation revealed that an argument erupted between the two which led Mariya to stab her blood brother.”
According to the police, the argument arose when the deceased ordered that the music going on during the ceremony be stopped which Mariya resisted, and went on to stab her brother on the neck with a knife.
The commissioner of police CP Ahmed Iliyasu ordered that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for investigation.
