Rahma Haruna dead; Sad news early hours of yesterday Sunday 25th December as a 20 year old girl  in Kano State Rahma Haruna who has lived all her life in a plastic bowl died. This followed a brief illness according to a family member.

Special Assistant to the Governor of Bauchi State on Communications, Shamsuddeen Lukman Abubakar took to his Facebook handle this morning, December 26, to share this news saying: “Rest in peace Rahma Haruna.”

Rahma has lived inside a bowl all her life and according to findings confirmed by her mother Fadi, Rahma’s limbs, feet and hands stopped developing when she was 6 months. This was at about the time she had just learnt to sit. The development prevented her from learning anything else new apart from sitting which led to her disability.


“She started with a fever and everything changed. She began to have stomach pains, then changes were also noticed on her body parts like hands and legs. She cannot use any if the ache strikes.”

Born in Lahadin Makole village in Kano, Rahma, who barely had any limb, suffered stunted growth of torso and lived on receiving alms to feed herself and assist her parents.

Rahma’s story is a peculiar one even right from when she first made news in January when her pictures, carried by her 10 year old brother Fahad in a bowl drew sympathy and attracted a lot of attention, donations in cash, foodstuff, clothing among other things.

At the heart of the donations she received was a wheelchair from a journalist Ibrahim Jirgi that would later ease the job of carrying her around and also allow for a lot more tours as she incidentally is said to have loved the outings.

For much of her life, Rahma’s family would carry her in her bowl, with her brother Fahad taking her into Kano each day to beg for alms.

In spite of her severe disability, Rahma had entrepreneurial ambitions. When asked what she wanted out of life, her response was ” I want to start a business, i want to open a store where i can sell everything people wanted”

Rest in peace Rahma Haruna.
