A 20-year-old man, Halifa Hamza, has taken the life of his elder brother, Usman Hamza, after stabbing him a pair of scissors in Kurna community in Dala Local Government Area of Kano State. 

Report has it that the incident occurred on Sunday April 2, 2023 following a misunderstanding which ensued between them.

While granting a radio interview, the father of the two brothers, Alhaji Hamza, dismissed the claim that they fought because of a cat.

He said they fought because the younger brother put on the shirt and trousers of his elder brother.

“The elder brother that was killed (Usman) collected my motorcycle to go and inform his friends that we had organised Iftar for people so that they could come and eat,” Alhaji Hamza explained.

“When he came back, he saw his younger brother with his shirt and trousers. He then asked why he did that, and from there a fight started. The younger one entered the house and brought a pair of scissors and stabbed the older brother on his chest and he died there.”

A friend to Halifa who spoke to the press as an anonymous said the suspect ran away from the house.

While confirming the tragic occurrence on Wednesday April 5, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, said investigation was ongoing.
