The Kano woman, Hajia Hauwa Abdullah, who killed and allegedly butchered her two children in Kano has claimed that she was out of her senses when the incident occurred.
In her statement to the Police in Kano, Hauwa said she was not in any way aware that she had killed her own children.
“I saw my two children Zuhra and Yusuf attacking me with a knife or something” she was quoted as saying.
“I called my husband and told him what was happening, but he didn’t believe me” she went further to state.
“So I locked the house and escaped to my mother’s house for safety” she stated.
The Police in Kano arrested Hauwa, who resides in Diso Quarters, Gwale LGA, Kano State, Saturday night for hacking down her two biological children, namely Irfan Ibrahim aged 6 and Zuhura Ibrahim aged 3 while injuring a 10 year- old relative, Aisha Sadiq, of the same address.
The case has been transferred to State Criminal Investigations Department (SCID) for discreet investigation.
