Geng Quangrong, the Chinese man who stabbed his girlfriend, Ummu Kulthum, to death at Kabuga Quarters, Dorayi Babba, in Kano State last Friday, has confessed that he killed her because she refused to marry him after he had spent so much on her.
Deng confessed to the crime after he was arrested by the police in Kano.
According to the police spokesman, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, the suspect, aged 47, committed the crime after scaling the fence of the deceased residence to gain access where he stabbed her multiple times until she gave up the ghost.
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 said that he was angered by her deception and he decided to attack and kill the deceased at her residence.
The police spokesman said that the mother of the deceased raised an alarm while Deng was committing the act and the police was immediately alerted.
The Commissioner of Police in Kano State, Abubakar Lawan, then directed the DPO, Dorayi Babba, to take charge of the situation.
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 her family members and friends mourn her sudden departure.
