Self-closure: I regret contemplating suicide over Buhari’s daughter, says Kano man
Abba Ahmed, a 22-year-old man from Kano state, says he regretted contemplating suicide over Hanan, one of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Ahmed was said to have earlier threatened to kill himself if he did not marry the president’s daughter.
This is despite the fact that the duo have neither been engaged in any previously known relationship.
Hanan tied the knot with Mohammed Turad, a special adviser to Babatunde Fashola, minister of works and housing, on Friday.
According to PUNCH, Abdullahi Haruna, Kano police spokesman, said Ahmed shelved his initial suicide plan following the intervention of the command.
“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as Kano CP, Habu Sani, and the command’s imam, SP Abdullkadir Haruna, via a virtual session, at the end of which he rescinded his earlier decision to hang himself,” he said.
“He accepted that his decision is not in his best interest and rejected his motives. He regretted his comments that if he did not marry President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Hanan, he will hang himself.”
Haruna further quoted Ahmed as promising he would never nurse such thoughts again.
“I realised that my intention is not healthy. Henceforth, I will never again attempt to find myself in such a situation,” he was quoted as saying.
