A 22-year-old man, Abba Ahmed, who earlier threatened to commit suicide if Hanan, the daughter of the President of Nigeria, Major Muhammadu Buhari (retd), dumped him to wed her fiancé, has shelved the plan.
Marriage-chronicles.com had earlier reported that Hanan got married on Friday to Turad Sha’aban, a Special Adviser to the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola.
Briefing our correspondent on Friday on the outcome of the Police intervention, the Command’s PRO, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, disclosed that Ahmed changed his mind against hanging himself.
Haruna said, ”We were able to invite Abba Ahmad to the Police Command. He was counseled by the Force PRO, DCP Frank Mba, virtually, as well as the Kano Police Commissioner, Habu Sani, at the end of which he rescinded his earlier decision to hang himself.
“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.”
The PPRO quoted Ahmed as saying, “‘My one-on-one encounter with Police authorities has made me have a rethink and I now have a soft spot for the police, and I have the interest to join the Police Force when such an opportunity arises.
”I realised that my intention is not healthy. Henceforth, I will never again attempt to find myself in a situation, where the Police will invite to quiz me. I will never be involved in anything that is tantamount to an offence.”
According to the PPRO, the Police also invited Ahmed’s mother and other family members who assured the Command that they will monitor and take good care of him, and prevent him from hanging himself.
