young man from a royal home, Jamilu with a traditional
title, Barden Kano, has shot his nanny because his crying daughter woke him up
from sleep, in Barnawa Area of Kaduna.
my attempt to know the story behind this photos. I spoke with a
Lawyer/Activist in Kaduna who was following up this matter and this is
what he said to me:
The man was taking an afternoon nap when his little daughter was crying.
The cry woke him up and he asked after his wife and the wife was not in
the house. He blamed the Nanny for leaving the daughter. So, he brought
out two guns (long and short), aimed at the Nanny and fired her. As she
managed to step out from the house but, she fell down as a result of
amount of blood she was bleeding. The man came down to plead with her
and decided to take her to the hospital. He then, quickly called one of
the Community leader and told him what happened, the leader called the
CP. Now, from all indications, the narrative is changing, the man is
going round telling people that he was servicing his gun and the there
was accidental discharge which shot at his maid. To cover up this issue,
the Lawyer said Jamilu made offer to bribe his maid and the Community
THE WOMAN IS LYING HELPLESS IN THE HOSPITAL IN KADUNA.
