The command spokesman, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, confirmed the arrest in a statement in Kano on Tuesday.

The statement showed that the incident occurred on Jan. 1, at Gimawa village of the LGA.

It announced that investigation revealed the deceased and the suspect’s husband had been having an affair for more than six years, and were due to wed on Jan. 9.

“On Jan. 2, at about 10.30 am., a complaint was received from one Kabiru Jafaru, of the same address that the body of his 17-year -old daughter, who got missing on Jan. 1, was found in an uncompleted building in their neighborhood.

“During interrogation, the suspect freely confessed she had called the victim on phone, deceived and lured her to an uncompleted building in their neighborhood where she used a sharp knife to stab her on her neck, chest and other parts of her body.
