Chinese man stabs Nigerian girlfriend Ummukulsum Buhari to death in Kano.
The Chinese national, Mr Geng, had been dating Ummukulsum for years before she dumped him to marry a Nigerian suitor.
Tragedy struck last night in Kano when a Chinese national simply identified as Mr Geng fought his way into the home of his ex-girlfriend, and then stabbed her to death, eye witnesses say.
The ex-girlfriend, Ummukulsum Buhari was a resident of Janbulo area of Kano metropolis, source confirmed.
The newspaper quoted the deceased’s mom as saying that Mr Geng came to their house and knocked at the door frantically around 8pm, and later forced himself into the house around 9pm.
Once inside the house, the Chinese national pushed his way through into the room of Ummukulsum and stabbed her to death.
“When we got tired of his knocking, I went out to tell him to keep off our house, but he pushed and went straight into her room and killed her,” the mother said.
“We then began shouting and neighbours came to our rescue and apprehended him.
“She was immediately taken to hospital where she was later certified dead.”
According to report, Geng has been dating Ummukulsum for years before she dumped him to marry a Nigerian suitor.
Her marriage crashed recently after her husband discovered her chats with Mr Geng in her phone and suspected they were still dating.
After the divorce, Mr Geng returned again, but Ms Buhari rejected his overtures.
