A 23-year-old Nigerian lady identified as Ummakulsum Sani Buhari, popularly known as Ummita, has been brutally murdered by a Chinese man identified as Mr Geng. Ummita was killed at Janbulo Quarters in Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano State on Friday night.
Following Ummita’s death, her mother has narrated to the newsmen the kind of relationship that existed between her and the Chinese man, and how he stormed their house and killed her in the night.
In the report by Sahara Reporters, Ummita’s mom said that her daughter was dating the Chinese man some years ago, but they later broke up. Following their breakup, Ummita later got married to someone else, but after sometime, the marriage broke up.
After her divorce, Mr Geng tried to come back into her life, but Ummita did not want the relationship.
She said that her daughter actually wanted to marry the Chinese man, but her uncles were against it, and she was in support of her uncles’ decision too.
Speaking further, she said that her daughter was avoiding him, and even when he called her, she didn’t pick, until that night when he came to their house and stabbed her to death.
She said – “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 on 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 her room is because he used to come here. 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.”
The brutal murder of the young lady has sparked reactions on social media, with many calling on the authorities to ensure that justice is served in the matter.
Ummita was buried on Saturday morning according to Islamic rites.
We pray for the young lady’s soul to rest in peace, and also for her family to have the strength to bear this painful loss.
