Sadiya Usman, 16, committed suicide by hanging herself over alleged forced marriage in Garin Dauru village in Warawa Local Government Area, Kano state.

Efforts to save her proved abortive as she was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

According to the Kano State Police Command spokesperson, SP Abdullahi Kiywawa, the police were informed of the incident on the first day of August.

“The police on 01/08/2022 at about 3:00 received a phone call from the village Head of Garin Dauru town in Warawa local Government that a girl hanged herself in her room”.

He said after receiving the report, a team of policemen was mobilized to the scene and they discovered that the girl used her wrapper and wooden mortar to hang herself.

He said the girl was immediately rushed to the Wudil General Hospital and was confirmed dead by a medical doctor.

Kiyawa said the investigation is going on to identify the reason she committed the suicide.

The father of the deceased, Malam Usman, denies that his daughter committed suicide over forced marriage.

“The report that the girl hanged herself because of forced marriage is not true, all I know is that my daughter is possessed by demons that used to disturb her from time to time,” he said.
