Geng Quangrong, a 47-year-old Chinese man has explained why he stabbed his 23-year-old girlfriend, Ummu Kulthum to death in her residence at Kabuga Quaters, Dorayi Babba in Kano State.
Heritage Times (HT) had earlier reported that the suspect committed the crime after breaking into her residence where he stabbed her multiple times until she gave up the ghost.
Geng who is an employee of the BBY textile company in the Kwari Market in Kano, confessed to the crime after he was arrested by the police in Kano said he stabbed the deceased because she betrayed him.
In a statement issued by spokesman of the state command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, Geng alleged that Ummu had promised to marry him, but later reneged on that promise after he had spent so much on her.
The suspect further stated that, angered by her deception, he decided to attack and kill the deceased at her residence.
Deng has since been transferred to the state headquarters at Bompai for further investigation and prosecution.
Meanwhile, late Ummu has been buried Saturday morning in Kano as the family members and friends mourn her sudden departure.
