The Kano State Police Command has arrested a 24-year-old housewife, Hafsat Surajo, for allegedly stabbing her domestic staff, Nafi’u Hafiz, to death.
The Commissioner of Police, Hussaini Gumel, confirmed the incident while addressing newsmen at the Command’s Headquarters in Bompai on Friday.
He said the incident occurred at Unguwa Uku quarters in Taurani Local Government Area of the state.
He said, “On December 21, at about 0700 hours, a report was received from one Hafizu Salisu of Bauchi LGA, that he received a phone call from one Daiyanu Abdullahi of Unguwa Uku, Kano, that his brother, Nafi’u Hafiz, is dead”.
He explained that when the brother arrived at the residence of Unguwa Uku, they discovered several injuries on different parts of the deceased suspected to be knife stabs.
The commissioner of police said the investigation led to the arrest of the key suspect, Hafsat Surajo, a housewife in the residence where the deceased lived.
Gumel explained that the suspect confessed to singlehandedly committing the act by stabbing the deceased on several parts of his body.
“Her husband, Dayyabu Abdullahi of the same address, and their gateman, Malam Adamu, were arrested for aiding, packaging, and concealing the dead body to give cover up for the culpable homicide,” he said.
Gumel said a discreet investigation led to the recovery of the knife with blood stain used in committing the crime.
He said as soon as the investigation was concluded, the suspect would be charged in court for appropriate prosecution.
