A sixteen-year-old girl hanged herself at Garin Dauru village in Warawa Local Government Area, Kano State because she didn’t want to be married off.

Spokesman of the Kano State Police Command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa said 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 Sadiya Usman hanged herself in her room.

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.

But reports say the girl took her own life to escape forced marrage.

Malam Usman, the father of the girl, said it was not true she was being forced to marry.

“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.
