Man stabbed his elder brother to death over shirt, trousers in Kano

A 20-year-old man, Halifa Hamza, has st@bbed his elder brother, Usman Hamza, to death with a pair of scissors in Kurna community in Dala Local Government Area of Kano State. 

It was gathered that the incident happened on Sunday, April 2, 2023, after an argument erupted between the brothers. 
 
In an interview with Freedom Radio, their father, Alhaji Hamza, said it was not true that they fought because of a cat, but that it was as a result of the younger brother wearing 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 st@bbed the older brother on his chest and he d!ed there.”

Halifa’s friend, who pleaded anonymity, said immediately the incident happened, he left the house and ran away.
Spokesman of the state police command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust on Wednesday, said investigation was ongoing.
