An eyewitness told DAILY POST that the incident occurred Saturday afternoon in a bush near the village.
He said the girl used rope to hang herself on a tree to register her sadness over parent’s inability to purchase Hijab for her.
The Jigawa State Police Spokesman SP Abdu Jinjiri, confirmed the incident to DAILY POST.
He said the deceased killed herself after she demanded her father to buy her a veil (Hijab) which he refused.
Jinjiri said the corpse was discovered by a Good Samaritan in the area and quickly informed security agents.
