The police in Kano state have arrested one Haruna Ya’u popularly known as Dangaru, for allegedly killing his friend, Sani Ibrahim, following a disagreement over N500 (which is less than 1 dollar, 50 cents).

According to reports confirmed by numerous news outlets, the incident happened at Dan Tsinke Quarters of Tarauni Local Government Area on Monday, 16th August.

Family members of the deceased disclosed that the victim, Sani Ibrahim had given one of his friends, Aminu Ahmad, N500, and sent him on an errand but the friend, Aminu decided to use the money for himself without fulfilling the errand.

An argument ensued when late Ibrahim asked for his money or the item from Aminu Ahmad. Haruna who is friends with the elate Sani Ibrahim, arrived at the scene and took sides with Aminu. Both men got involved in a fight and in the process, Haruna picked up a pair of scissors and stabbed Ibrahim fatally.

The victim was quickly rushed to the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital, Kano, where he was pronounced dead by the resident doctor.
