'Why I shelved plans to commit suicide over Buhari's daughter'

A 22-year - old man , Abba Ahmed, who earlier threatened to commit suicide if Hanan , the daughter of the President , Major Muhammadu Buhari ( retd ) , dumped him to wed her fiancΓ© , has shelved the plan .

The PUNCH had earlier reported that Hanan got married on Friday to Turad Sha’ aban, a Special Adviser to the Minister of Works and Housing , Babatunde Fashola .

Briefing our correspondent on Friday on the outcome of the Police intervention , the Command’ s PRO, DSP Abdullahi Haruna , disclosed that Ahmed changed his mind against hanging himself.

Haruna said , ” We were able to invite Abba Ahmad to the Police Command. He was counseled by the Force PRO, DCP Frank Mba, virtually , as well as the Kano Police Commissioner , Habu Sani , at the end of which he rescinded his earlier decision to hang himself .

“ He accepted that his decision is not in his best interest and rejected his motives. He regretted his comments that if he did not marry President Muhammadu Buhari ’ s daughter , Hanan , he will hang himself. ”

The PPRO quoted Ahmed as saying , “‘My one - on -one encounter with Police authorities has made me have a rethink and I now have a soft spot for the police, and I have the interest to join the Police Force when such an opportunity arises .

” I realised that my intention is not healthy. Henceforth , I will never again attempt to find myself in a situation , where the Police will invite to quiz me . I will never be involved in anything that is tantamount to an offence . ”

According to the PPRO , the Police also invited Ahmed’ s mother and other family members who assured the Command that they will monitor and take good care of him , and prevent him from hanging himself.
