A 20-year-old man, Halifa Hamza has stabbed his elder brother, Usman Hamza to death with scissors in Kano State.
The event reportedly took place on Sunday, April 2, 2023, following a fight between the siblings.
Their father, Alhaji Hamza, claimed in an interview with Freedom Radio that the younger brother’s donning his older brother’s shirt and pants was the real reason for their argument rather than a cat as was rumored.
He said: “The elder brother that was killed (Usman) collected my motorcycle to go and inform his friends that we had organised Iftar for people so that they could come and eat.
When he came back, he saw his younger brother with his shirt and trousers. He then asked why he did that, and from there a fight started. The younger one entered the house and brought a pair of scissors and stabbed the older brother on his chest and he died there.”
Halifa’s friend, who pleaded anonymity, said immediately the incident happened, he left the house and ran away.
According to to Daily Trust, the state police spokesman, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, who confirmed the incident on Wednesday, said investigation was ongoing.
