Kano man stopped from committing suicide over failure to marry Buhari’s daughter

A 22-year-old man, Abba Ahmed, has been reportedly stopped by the Kano State Police Command from committing suicide over failure to marry President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter.

Ahmed who had earlier threatened to kill himself if Hanan, Buhari’s daughter, did not marry him changed his mind following police prompt intervention.

Spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, while briefing Punch on Friday said the police counselled Ahmed against the plan and he had rescinded the decision.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as Kano CP, Habu Sani, and the command’s imam, SP Abdullkadir Haruna, via a virtual session, at the end of which he rescinded his earlier decision to hang himself.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.”

Haruna quoted Ahmed 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.

The ceremony, which was held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja, was said to be “strictly private.”

The President’s wife, Aisha, took to her Instagram page, @aishambuhari, to thank God for the success of the ceremony.

He is the son of a former lawmaker, Mahmud Sani Sha’aban, who represented Zaria in the House of Representatives from 2003 to 2007.
