A 20-year-old man, Halifa Hamza, stabbed his elder brother, Usman Hamza, to death with a pair of scissors in Kurna community in Dala Local Government Area of Kano State.
The tragic incident reportedly occurred on Sunday, April 2, 2023, after an argument erupted between the brothers.
Speaking with Freedom Radio, their father, Alhaji Hamza, said they fought as a result of the younger brother wearing the shirt and trousers of his elder brother.
Alhaji Hamza explained that, “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.”
“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.”
Halifa’s friend, who pleaded anonymity, said immediately the incident happened, he left the house and ran away.
According to Daily Trust, the state police spokesman, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, who confirmed the incident on Wednesday, said investigation was ongoing.
