A girl has been arrested after she stabbed her brother to death during a fight.
According to reports, a girl identified as Marariya Sulaiman stabbed her brother, Mallam Sani Sulaiman, to death yesterday, Saturday July 6.
The two got into a fight at their Badawa residence in Kano State, when Sani instructed Marariya not to erect a DJ stand in front of their house, ahead of their younger sister’s wedding today.
It started as a disagreement which later escalated into a fight that led to Marariya allegedly stabbing the deceased to death.
She is currently in Police custody for investigation before she will be arraigned in court.
