Abdullahi said, “On May 12, 2019, around 7pm, the police received a report that a lady was stabbed in a clinic at Tal’udu quarters, in the Gwale Local Government Area of Kano State.

“The police promptly rushed to the scene and conveyed the victim, Aisha Kabir, who had cuts on her neck, to the Murtala Muhammed Specialist Hospital, Kano.

“The suspect, Bashir Yahaya, was arrested at the scene of the crime and the exhibit of a knife with bloodstain was recovered from him.
