According to the statement, the Central Control Room of the fire service received an emergency call at approximately 10:07 am from the Ministry of Works and Housing, Kano State, reporting the incident at the State Road by Nasarawa Emir’s house.

Upon receiving the call, the fire service personnel on standby duty mobilized to the scene, arriving at about 10:10 am.

He said they found Saifullah Rabiu in a critical condition, attempting to take his own life by hanging from a tree.

In his suicide note, Rabiu disclosed the overwhelming debt he owed, explaining that he had already refunded about N500,000 of the borrowed sum.

He lamented that the challenges and embarrassment from the creditor drove him to the point of considering suicide.

Abdullahi stated that the rescued man, Saifullah Rabiu, has been handed over to the Divisional Crime Officer (D.C.O) Zaharaddini of the Farm Centre Police Division for further investigations.
