According to a statement by the Rano Emirate Public Relations Officer, Nasiru Habu Faragai, the district head of Bebeji submitted the report of the tragic incident to the Emir of Rano, Ambassador Kabiru Muhammad Inuwa, during the Emirate Council meeting on Monday.

He explained that the emir directed that the report be taken to the police in the Emirate Council for discreet investigation into the cause of the death.

However, when contacted for more details on the incident, the PRO told our correspondent that the deceased’s father was interrogated by the village head on whether the boy was into drugs or mentally ill.

“The emir was worried about the incident and asked the district head whether the boy was into drug abuse. He also asked the father whether he had some mental problems or they had grudges with someone, but the father said nothing was done to him. He also said he was not into drugs,” Faragai said.

He added that the emir directed district heads of the council to embark on intense prayers to ward off similar occurrences.

Calls put across to the spokesman for the Kano State Police Command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, were not answered as of the time of filing this report.
