Speaking to newsmen about the incident, Director of Kano State Fire Service, Mustafa Rilwan, said the man was rescued from the well before he later died at Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital, Kano.
Rilwan said a neighbour raised the alarm and informed the state fire service that Balarabe had jumped inside the well after stabbing himself.

Balarabe’s reason for committing suicide remained a mystery at the time of filing this report.
