Kano Housewife Killed Man Who Stopped Her from Committing Suicide
Suspect, Victim and the Husband
It was both tragic and comic to learn that, last week, a 24-year-old full housewife, who was identified as Hafsat Surajo, allegedly stabbed her husband's brother, Nafiu Hafiz, 38, to death when he attempted to prevent her from taking her own life.

The unfortunate report which has been confirmed by the Police Public Relations Officer Kano State Police Command, SP Abdullahi Haruna occurred last week Thursday, December 21, 2023, and the young woman has since been arrested for interrogation.

A statement released by the Kano State Police Command stated the police received a distress call from Hafizu Salisu from Bauchi Metropolis who reported to the police that he received a distressing phone call from Dayyabu Abdullahi, the husband of the accused, informing him of the death of his brother, Nafiu Hafiz.

The Police confirmed Hafsat left multiple stabs on the chest of Hafiz who was allegedly attempting to stop her from committing suicide.

Upon reaching the residence at Unguwa Uku Quarters in Kano, the family discovered Hafiz’s lifeless body bearing multiple stab wounds.

Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Usaini Gumel, promptly ordered the Divisional Police Officer, SP Abubakar Chika Zaki of Zaria Road Division, to lead a team of detectives to investigate the matter.

The body was swiftly moved to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, where a medical doctor confirmed Hafi dead on arrival.

The statement released by the Police read:

“On 21/12/2023 at about 0700hrs, report was received from one Hafizu Salisu of Bauchi Metropolis of Bauchi State that he received a phone call from one Dayyabu Abdullahi ‘m’ of Unguwa Uku Quarters Kano that his brother one Nafi’u Hafiz, aged 38 years, is dead and that they should come and convey the corpse for burial.”

“When they arrived at the residence at Unguwa Uku Quarters Kano, they discovered several injuries on different parts of the lifeless body suspected to be knife stabs.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Usaini Gumel, FIPMA, psc directed the Divisional Police Officer, Zaria Road Division, SP Abubakar Chika Zaki, to lead a team of detectives to the Scene and to conduct a preliminary investigation.

“Upon arrival of the crime scene detectives, the motionless body was removed from the scene and rushed to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital where a Medical Doctor certified the body dead.

“Further investigation led to the arrest of Hafsat Surajo, aged 24 years, a female housewife of the residence where the deceased lived.

“Further investigation at the Command’s Criminal Investigation Department, obtained a confession by Hafsat who admitted that she singlehandedly committed the act by stabbing the deceased on several parts of his body with a knife while he was preventing her from committing suicide.

“Her husband, Dayyabu Abdullahi, aged 38 years, ‘m’, of the same address, and their gateman Mallam Adam, aged 65 years were arrested for packaging and concealing the dead body and cover.

“Meanwhile, through discreet investigation, the knife was recovered with a blood stain resulting from committing the crime. The suspect will be charged to Court after the completion of the investigation.”
