Five suspects have been arrested by the Kano State Police Command in connection with the murder of a 24-year-old woman, Rukkaya Mustapha, at Danbare town of Kumbotso Local Government Area of the state.
The Deputy Governor, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, and the Police Commissioner in conjunction with the Director of the Department of State Services, made this known during a courtsey visit to the family of the deceased.
Recall that Mustapha was murdered on Saturday in her matrimonial home at Danbare at about 7 pm while her two children, a three-year-old and a one-and-half-year-old, were beaten to a pulp by the killers.
“Government would not tolerate these dastardly acts coming at a time when we are doing all we could to ensure peace in Kano, that is why Governor Ganduje insisted to quickly sign the death warrant of the killer of Hanifa Abubakar”.
The Police Commissioner, Mr Habu Sani explained that they have uncovered that drug addiction is highly behind the heinous crimes and that is why they have since arrested many drug peddlers.
