The Kano State High Court has sentenced Geng Quandong, a 47-year-old Chinese man and ‘lover’  to death by hanging for killing Ummukulsum Buhari, his Nigerian girlfriend.

Justice Sanusi Ado Ma’aji of the Kano High Court made the pronouncement in his ruling Tuesday, March 26, 2024.

The court found Quandong guilty of the offence of culpable homicide punishable with death under Section 221 of the Penal Code Law of Kano State and convicted accordingly.

It is recalled Quangrong September 16, 2022, had stabbed Ummukulsum, 23, to death at her family residence in Janbulo quarters, Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano State, Northern Nigeria.

During cross-examination in court, the Chinese national expressed that his late lover broke his heart by marrying someone else, despite his intentions to settle down with her.

Quangrong also related how he invested in their wedding preparations, purchased dresses, sweets, and other attires amounting to N1.5 million, along with ‘Asoebi’ for her friends and N700,000 in new notes for “spraying” during the ceremony.

He equally mentioned several other investments made in Ummukulsum, including a house, car, startup capital for a business, and expenses for her new shop.

The foreigner further mentioned substantial purchases, such as gold jewelry, University certificate processing fees, and the installation of a solar system in their house, totalling millions of Naira.

The Chinese man as well told the court: “Besides huge amounts of money I used to spend on her, I used to take her out to places like Bristol Palace and Central Hotel to eat food.

“I bought her house worth N4 million, a car worth N10 million, N18 million as capital to start business, and spent N500,000 worth of bags and shoes on her new shop and N1 million worth of laces and wrappers and a house in Abuja which she started building.”
