BREAKING: Court Sentences Chinese To Death For killing Nigerian Girlfriend


The Kano State High Court has sentenced a Chinese national, Frank Geng-Quangrong, to death by hanging for the murder of his girlfriend, Ummukalthuum Buhari.

Recall that Quangrong allegedly killed his erstwhile girlfriend, Buhari, following a misunderstanding.

According to Punch, Quangrong was accused of culpable homicide in the death of his girlfriend, Buhari, but denied killing her intentionally and pleaded with Justice Sunusi Ado Ma’aji of the Kano State High Court to temper justice with mercy.

In his testimony on Tuesday, Quangrong claimed that he stabbed his girlfriend in self-defence after she allegedly grabbed his testes in September 2022.

“I didn’t kill Ummulkhulsum intentionally but stabbed her in self-defence after she grabbed my testes,” Ouangrong said.

Justice Sanusi Ado-Ma’aji, who presided over the case, delivered the judgment on Tuesday.

“The defendant’s testimony is inconsistent. I hereby find him guilty,” Justice Sanusi said.

He further recommended mercy on behalf of the convict to be considered by the Kano State governor.

Following the verdict, the victim’s mother, Hajiya Fatima Zubairu, expressed satisfaction with the court’s decision. The ruling serves as a testament to the pursuit of justice for victims of violent crimes in the region.

As Frank awaits the governor’s decision on his plea for mercy, many believe the legal proceedings serve as a reminder of the need for stringent measures to prevent similar tragedies in the future.
