Miss Amina Gwani Danzarga, the bride-to-be who disappeared hours to her wedding in Kano, a week ago was not kidnapped as believed but disappeared because she did not want the wedding, the police have revealed.
The spokesperson of the command, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, while speaking made this disclosure.
He further stated that the lady had planned the whole idea and disappeared, making her parents and her suitor believe she was kidnapped a few hours to the planned wedding in Kano.
It was reported that the days the lady spent in hiding, she went to many places to achieve her plan.
“Investigation is ongoing to trace all the places she stayed and the phone calls she made during her four days in hiding,” he said.
He said that, as part of the police mandate to protect people’s lives, the Kano command took the girl to the hospital to crosscheck her health condition.
Amina while speaking on her action noted that she planned her disappearance as she doesn’t love her husband-to-be.
“Of course, though I was the one to propose him to my parent later I don’t love the guy that is why I took that decision,” she said.
She further stated that she respects her parents a lot, she couldn’t inform them of her sudden change of mind about her suitor.
She, however, said she now loves her husband-to-be more than before and she is ready to live with him peacefully for the rest of her life.
Amina also apologized to her parents and her husband-to-be, noting that it was an act of the devil.
Amina’s uncle, Gwani Rayyanuna Gwani Danzarga, expressed shock over the incidence.
“I am still in shock of what the girl committed.”
“She was the one who introduced him to us and I made an investigation about the guy and as parents, we made all the necessary plans for the marriage.”
“She did not inform us about her change of mind, only for us now to hear a different story from her,” he said.
Asked what the next step would be, Gwani Rayyanuna said that the family will meet and make the decision on the proposed marriage.
When contacted, the husband-to-be, Umar Hassan, refused to comment on the issue, saying that he is yet to meet with her.
The family had earlier debunked the rumour making the rounds that their daughter might have planned her disappearance because she was not interested in the marriage.
Hajiya Hajara Anas, an aunt of the lady, said that the girl loved her fiancé and was deeply involved in the wedding arrangements.
“She loves her fiancé. Throughout last week, she was in my house for Gyaran Jikin (traditional body beatification). I took her to my neighbour who does Gyaran Jiki in Kofar Mazugal here in Kano.
“You know a girl who doesn’t want the marriage or does not love the fiancé would not do it for marriage’s sake,” she added.
Newsonspot.com.ng also reported that the fiancé of the victim, Umar Hassan, who is still in shock, dismissed the rumours that his fiancée went into hiding or fled so as not to get married to him.
