Teenager Commits S*icide In Kano

Ibrahim Lawan, 16, is said to have committed suicide in Kuki village, Bebeji Local Government Area, Kano State.

According to Nasiru Habu Faragai, Public Relations Officer, Bebeji, Rano Emirate Council, the emir has directed the village head to launch a discreet investigation into the cause of death.

“The emir was concerned about the incident and inquired of the district head whether the boy was a drug addict.”

He also asked the father whether he had some mental problems or they had grudges with someone, but the father said nothing was done to him. He also said he was not into drugs,” Faragai said.

He added that the emir directed district heads of the council to embark on intense prayers to ward off similar occurrences.

The spokesman for the Kano State Police Command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, did not pick calls to confirm the report.
