Despite the police efforts and arrest of several suspects, the menace of phone snatching continues to cost the lives of Kano residents. The most recent incident occurred Sunday evening in Sharada quarters, around Nana Petroleum filling station.
Muhammad Sulaiman, alias Labbo, was a schoolteacher and farmer who got married in June this year. He was walking with his bride when the assailants stopped them.
As reports suggest, Muhammad did not show any resistance. However, the phone snatchers stabbed him, leaving him to bleed to death.
Our attempts to hear from the bereaved wife for further details proved difficult as she was still devastated. However, other friends and relatives described him as very cheerful, caring and God-fearing.
Muhammad, 37, was a graduate of Kano State Polytechnic. He also attended Government Technical College (GTC), Kano.
