The Spokesperson of the Kano State Police Command, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, said on Tuesday that the man had been taken into the police custody and after scrutiny, he confessed to having tied the cable to his neck.

“After we took him to the hospital, he had spoken the truth. Nothing has been collected from him. In fact, he tied the cable to himself. He is now in custody of the police,” Kiwaya wrote on his Facebook page.
