Man stabs elder brother to death over shirt and trouser


Halifa Hamza, 20, stabbed his elder brother Usman Hamza to death with a pair of scissors.

The incident occurred in the Kurna locality in Kano State’s Dala Local Government Area.

According to reports, the incident occurred on Sunday, April 2, 2023, following an argument between the brothers.

In an interview with Freedom Radio, their father, Alhaji Hamza, stated that the fight was not caused by a cat, but rather by the younger sibling wearing his elder brother’s shirt and trousers.

“The elder brother that was killed (Usman) collected my motorcycle to go and inform his friends that we had organised Iftar for people so that they could come and eat,” Alhaji Hamza explained.

“When he came back, he saw his younger brother with his shirt and trousers. He then asked why he did that, and from there a fight started. The younger one entered the house and brought a pair of scissors and stabbed the older brother on his chest and he died there.”

Halifa’s buddy, who requested anonymity, said he fled the residence as soon as the incident occurred.

The event is being investigated by the state police command.
