Outrage and anger trailed the gruesome murder of the young Nigerian woman, who was serving out the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

Popularly known as ‘Ummita’, the deceased was killed at Janbulo Quarters in Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano State.

The mother of the 23-year-old Nigerian woman, Ummakulsum Sani Buhari, who was killed by her Chinese lover, Mr Geng on Friday night has narrated how the incident happened.

Daily Trust reports that the deceased was buried around 10am on Saturday, according to Islamic rites.
However, the mother of the deceased revealed that the Chinese national had first pushed her down when she opened door after several bangs and he immediately rushed to her daughter’s room where he stabbed her to death.
Traumatised with the situation, she raised the alarm, but regretted that efforts to save her failed as she died before they reached hospital.
She narrated, “The deceased was my daughter; he (the Chinese man) always comes around wanting to see her and she has been refusing. This time around when he came, he kept knocking on the door. When I was fed up of him hitting the door loudly, I opened the door and he pushed me aside and got in and started stabbing her with a knife.

“I started shouting and people came running. We rushed her to the hospital but before we arrived, she was dead. It happened around 9.30pm. We were at home with her two younger sisters when it happened. Her brother was out and her father is dead. It was raining then, people were indoors and couldn’t hear me shouting until when someone came and tried going in through the window.

“I want the authorities to see to this criminal act. It was long since their love affair ended. She got married and later got divorced. That was when he came back to her life, pressing that he must see her. He used to come in although we don’t like it, he doesn’t understand. We used to chase him out. When I attempted informing the police, my children would refuse and say let’s not take the matter public.

“The man that came to her aid and went through the window; he was the one who caught him and brought him out. He ran off and they chased him and brought him back. He is now with the police. She was my eldest daughter but she has two elder brothers.

“He understands that she doesn’t want to see him. When he calls, she doesn’t pick up. That’s when he decided to invade. He knocked at the door for almost an hour. She was the one who asked me to go and send him away after which he pushed me away upon opening the gate.

“He went straight to her room. He knows where the room is because he used to come in. In most cases, it’s her brother that used to send him away. They first met at Shoprite when she went to buy perfume and they exchanged phone numbers. That’s how they started making out on calls.

“When she got married, they separated until when she was divorced. Her husband suspects they were chatting with him on phone although that was not what led to the failure of her marriage. Of course, she told him that she was going to marry him, but because her paternal uncles saw issues coming, they refused and I agreed with them,” she concluded.
