A Magistrate’s Court in Kano has ordered the remand of Geng Quanrong, a Chinese national living in Nigeria, over the murder of one Ummukulsum Sani Buhari in Kano.

The police arrested Quanrong after he went to Ummukulsum’s house and murdered her on Friday.

According to Daily Trust, Quanrong stabbed Ummukulsum to death last week after their romantic relationship turned sour.

The Magistrate’s Court ordered that Quanrong be remanded in Kurmawa Medium Security Custodial Centre after the police arraigned him before the court on the charge of culpable homicide contrary to section 221 of the penal code.

Hanif Sanusi Ciroma, the magistrate, held that the court lacked the jurisdiction to hear the case of Ummukulsum’s murder.

Khalifa Auwal Hashim, the prosecution counsel, appealed to the Magistrate’s Court to send Quanrong back to a custodial facility pending legal advice from the Kano State Ministry of Justice on what court has the jurisdiction to entertain the case.

Magistrate Ciroma granted the appeal and ruled that Quanrong be remanded in the Kurmawa Medium Security Custodial Centre till October 13.
