Majiya said that the two suspects were arrested for allegedly conspiring to kill the old woman.

According to him, Abdullahi allegedly killed 70-year-old Hajiya Zinab-Abu on the prodding of Umar, her biological son.

“Based on investigation, Umar was found to have conspired with his friend to stab his elderly mother to death after having a heated disagreement with her,” the police said.

According to him, Umar, of Fegin Liman in Kano, was said to have been irked by his mother’s refusal to grant him permission to lease his farm.

Majiya said the two suspects would be arranged in court for prosecution once ongoing investigation was completed.
