A 22-year-old man, Abba Ahmed, was on Friday stopped from committing suicide over his purported ‘social media love’ for Hanan Buhari, daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, who was recently given out in marriage.
It was gathered that the Kano State Police Command averted the planned suicide.
Abba, a final-year student of Accounting at Yusuf Maitama Sule University, Kano, had, in a post on his Facebook and Instagram handles, vowed to commit suicide if he failed to marry Hanan Buhari.
It was learnt that on getting wind of the post, the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr Frank Mba, signalled Kano State Commissioner of Police, Mr Habu Sani, to immediately invite Abba who resides in Kano.
It was also gathered that Frank Mba spoke with Abba on phone for about seven minutes, advising him on the need to face better goals in future rather than committing suicide over Hanan Buhari.
After he was counselled by Commissioner of Police, Habu Sani, Abba regretted his actions, and also expressed his intention to join the police.
Abba explained that he was moved to join the Nigeria Police Force because of the way he was counselled by police authorities.
He said, “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.”
Asked what attracted him to Hanan Buhari, Abba said, “I loved Hanan because of her beautiful face. I admired her because of the integrity of her father (President Buhari). I also loved her because of the level of her education.”
Abba revealed that he made efforts to contact Hanan and her parents through social media platforms.
He also expressed his intention towards Hanan on the social media.
“I don’t think she knew I loved her. I tried to inform her, I do not think the message reached her.
“I also tried sending messages to President Buhari through the Social Media, I do not think he actually got the message,” he added.
Besides being an undergraduate, Abba also deals on fabrics and textile materials at the popular Kantin Kwari Textile Market.
He said he is now ready to begin a new life with a woman he can call his own.
Wishing Hanan Buhari and her newly wedded husband a happy married life, he urged Nigerian youths to invest their time on better things instead of wasting time on the social media.
