Abba Ahmad, a businessman and 400-level Accounting student of Yusuf Maitama Sule University, Kano state, has attempted to take his own life over his inability to marry President Buhari’s daughter, Hanan.
Hanan tied the knot with Mohammed Turad, a special adviser to Babatunde Fashola, minister of works and housing on Friday, September 4.
The 22-year-old man said has been thrilled by Hanan’s beauty and educational qualifications and has been sending her marriage proposals on Facebook and Instagram.
Ahmad, who is also a businessman, stated that he had made efforts to contact her and her parents through social media.
After repeatedly professing love to Hanan via social media and was unsuccessful, Ahmad vowed to take his life if he failed to marry her.
According to Nigerian Tribune, the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr Frank Mba, who got wind of the suicidal post which has now been deleted, signalled Kano State Commissioner of Police, Mr Habu Sani, for the immediate invitation of Ahmad who resides in the state.
Frank Mba reportedly spoke with Ahmad on phone for about seven minutes, advising him on the need to face better goals in future, than to take his life over a phantom marriage, borne out of infatuation and triggered by social pressure.
While being counselled, Ahmad said;
I am in love with her (Hanan Buhari) because of her beautiful face, her level of education and integrity of her father (Buhari). I tried informing her but I don’t know whether the messages got to her.
The man thanked the Police after the counselling session and also expressed desire to join the Force because of the friendly manner the Police treated his case.
I am impressed with the way Mr Frank Mba spoke to me. I also became very sober when the Commissioner of Police, Mr Habu Sani counselled me and urged me to desist from such thinking. The Chief Imam of the Police Command also admonished me.
I have denounced my earlier intention. I will no longer commit suicide. I will respect myself and wait for a woman I can call my own wife. I love my life now, and I want to live and fulfil my life ambition.
Ahmad therefore congratulated Hanan on her wedding, wishing her a happy married life.
