Kano man stabs neighbour for playing football in street

One Hassan Wanzami is in police custody for stabbing his 20-year-old neighbour, Yusuf Muhammad, in the Dan Rimi area of Fagge Local Government Area of Kano State.

 

It was gathered that Wanzami, a local barber, met Muhammad and his friends playing football in the neighbourhood and tried to stop them, alleging that they were spoiling the frontage of his house.

 

A friend of the victim said the young men moved to the next street and continued playing.

 

“But not satisfied with their relocation, Wanzami chased them with a knife and stabbed Muhammad on the neck,” he said. 

 

Muhammad’s mother, Rabi, said, “I was at home around 11am when they brought him (victim) with blood all over his body. I asked him who did that to him and he said it’s Mallam Hassan. I asked him what he did to him and he said nothing. That’s when I took him to the hospital.”

 

“Some elders in the area had to intervene because his friends and other concerned people had already started coming out with sticks and knives to attack Mallam Hassan. The police were called and they took him away.”

 

Spokesperson of the state police command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, who confirmed the incident said investigation is ongoing.
