Justice Sanusi Ado Ma’aji of Kano State High Court sitting at Miller Road, Bompai, has found Quandong Geng, a Chinese national, guilty of killing his girlfriend, Ummulkusum Sani Buhari (Ummita).

Geng invaded the residence of Ummita in September 2022 and stabbed her to death during an argument.

He had fled the scene but was subsequently arrested by the police and arraigned.

During cross examination in court, he had said Ummita broke his heart by getting married to another person, as he had plans of settling down with her.

Geng added that when they started preparation for their wedding, he bought her wedding dresses worth N1.5 million, sweets and other dresses they will wear on their wedding day, ‘Asoebi’ for her friends, and N700,000 new notes for spraying on the wedding day.

“I went to Sokoto to see her family members, where I spent N700,000. On the 13th September 2022, she requested some money to be used in the house she is building in Abuja but I didn’t give her because I don’t have money then. Since then, she has stopped answering my calls because she thought I was broke.


He said Ummita deceived him and got married to another person but continued to request money from him, and there was a time she came to Kano, and she made sure that they met.

He had said, “Besides the huge amounts of money I used to spend on her, I used to take her out to places like Bristol Palace and the Central Hotel to eat food.

“I bought her a 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.”

He added that he bought her gold jewelry worth N5 million, N6 million to go and process her certificate at Sokoto University, and N1 million to install the solar system in their house.

On Tuesday, the judge convicted Geng and sentenced to death.
