25-Year-Old Almajiri Commits Suicide!
Bawa, who was an almajiri hailed from Tungar Giwa in Shanga Local Government Area of Kebbi State and was said to have come to Minna at his tender age in search of Qu'ranic education.
According to an eye witness, who doesn't want his name in print, on the fateful day he searched around for the late Bawa to send him for an errand, but as he could not see him around he decided to look for him in his room.
He said at round 2 pm he pushed the door of his (Bawa's) room which was simply shut from behind and found him dead while his corpse was dangling from the rope he used in hanging himself from the ceiling fan of his one bedroom apartment.
He also said the deceased (Bawa) was a type of a person that could remain unfriendly for a whole day when annoyed by any of his girlfriends.
Late Auwal Bawa, who was otherwise called Akame was said to have drank Ota pia-pia, a poisonous substance a day before he committed the suicide. The suicide victim was also reported to have been in love with a girl that was simply identified as Balkisu, who he had proposed to marry.
