While parading the murder suspect, the Kano state police

command spokesperson, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa

confirmed the incident and disclosed that “in an unprovoked

attack that occurred around 1:30am, a 80-year-old man was

stabbed and eventually lost his life at about 6:30am of that

same day while receiving treatment.

He said that upon the receipt of the complaint, Officers at the station quickly mobilized and rushed the victim to Doguwa General Hospital to be resuscitated but later passed away in the hospital at about 6:30 am of that same day while receiving treatment.

Preliminary findings revealed that the suspect is a drug addict and carried out the heinous crime under the influence of hard drugs.

The suspect’s relatives made us know that Habibu has been abusing drugs and that has been an issue which consequently led to the death of their father, he added.

Kiyawa further said that the Commissioner of Police in

the state, Ahmed Iliyasu has directed that the suspect

should be transferred to the State Investigation and

Intelligence Department (SIID) as soon as a Doctor’s

report is ready.
