Kano was shocked over the weekend by reports that Bahijja Gombe, a 16-year-old maid, allegedly committed suicide.
The incident that occurred in a housing development located along the zoo road within the metropolis has already caused residents to suspect a crime.
Bahijja, a native of Gombe state, is said to have committed suicide by apparently hanging himself without leaving a suicide note.
But the Kano Police Command has launched a full-scale investigation into the controversial death of a Gombe-born teenager.
Kano Commando Police Spokesperson DSP Haruna Abdullahi, confirming the incident to reporters in Kano, said that Bahijja’s body has been deposited in Murtala Muhammad Hospital.
DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa revealed that Cp Habu Sani has ordered the CID to unravel the myth behind the young woman’s death.
