A Kano High Court has reserved judgment in the case involving Frank Geng Quangrong, a Chinese national accused of killing his Nigerian girlfriend, Ummukulsum Sani, 22.

Quangrong, who lives in Railway Quarters Kano is charged with culpable homicide. He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Justice Sanusi Ado-Ma’aji, adjourned the matter until March 29, for judgment.

The adjournment follows the adoption of the final written addresses by the prosecution and defence counsels Muhammad Dan’azumi and Aisha Mahmoud.

The prosecution closed its case against the defendant after presenting six witnesses on Dec.21, 2022.

The defendant also closed his case with two witnesses, including a Urologist Dr Abdullahi Abubakar”

In his testimony, the Quangrong told the court that the late Ummukulsum attacked him with a knife.

“While I was defending myself, Ummukulsum bit me on my arm and finger and also injured me on my genital,” Quangrong said.

The defendant was alleged to have stabbed the deceased with a knife in her house at Janbulo Quarters Kano on Sept.16, 2022.

The offence, the prosecution said, contravenes the provisions of Section 221(b) of the Penal Code law.
