Chinese remanded in prison, for killing Nigerian girlfriend

The Chinese national Mr Geng Quanrong

A magistrate court sitting in Kano has remanded Geng Quanrong, a 47-year-old Chinese national accused of killing his ex-lover, Ummukulthum Buhari in the state.

Geng Quanrong was arraigned by the Kano State Police Command on Wednesday.

In his ruling, Judge Hanif Sanusi Yusuf said the offence had contravened section 221 of the penal code law.

The judge, therefore, adjourned the case to October 13, 2022.

Geng Quanrong reportedly followed late Ummukulthum to her family house in Kano, forced himself into her room and stabbed her to death on Friday evening.
