The mother of the 23-year-old lady identified as Ummakulsum Sani Buhari who was killed in Kano by her Chinese lover has reacted to the incident.
Naija News had earlier reported that Ummakulsum was killed at Janbulo Quarters in Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano State on Friday night. The deceased was buried on Saturday around 10 am, according to Islamic rites. The woman while narrating the incident said the Chinese man always comes around wanting to see her daughter, but she keeps refusing. She said when the man came around on the day of the incident, she had to open the door for him when she was fed up with him hitting the door loudly. The victim’s mother noted that when she opened the door the suspect pushed her aside and got in and started stabbing her with a knife. She said, “I started shouting and people came running. We rushed her to the hospital but before we arrived, she was dead. “It happened around 9.30 pm. 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.” The mother while calling for justice added that her daughter ended her love affair with the Chinese man a long time ago. She revealed that the man came back pressuring her daughter when she got married and later got divorced. The woman said she tried reporting the case to the police but her children refused, claiming that they didn’t want the public to know. She added, “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 the 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.”
