But for the timely intervention of the Kano State Police Command, a 22-year-old man, Abba Ahmed, would have successfully committed suicide during the wedding of Hanan, the daughter of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), on Friday.
While speaking with pressmen at the command headquarters at Bompai hours later, police spokesperson, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, disclosed that the police counselled Ahmed against the plan and he had rescinded the decision.
Haruna said, “We were able to invite Abba Ahmed to the police command. He was counselled by the Force PRO, DCP Frank Mba, as well as Kano CP, Habu Sani, and the command’s imam, SP Abdullkadir Haruna, via a virtual session, at the end of which he rescinded his earlier decision to hang himself. He regretted his comments that if he did not marry the President’s daughter, Hanan, he would hang himself.”
Ahmed was quoted by Haruna as saying, “I realised that my intention is not healthy. Henceforth, I will never again attempt to find myself in such a situation.”
Meanwhile, Hanan on Friday got married to Turad Sha’aban in a strictly private ceremony that held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
