New Facts On The Relationship Between Ummita Buhari And Chinese Lover – Lifestyle Nigeria

The gruesome murder of 23-year-old Ummukulsum Sani Buhari (popularly known as Ummita) in Kano last Friday as well as the nature of the relationship between the victim and the Chinese lover, Geng Quanrong, has become the subject of an unending debate, Daily Trust reports. 

Daily Trust had reported how the victim was stabbed to death by Quanrong, her lover, late Friday, but since the news broke, many allegations and counter-allegations have continued to surface on the sort of relationship that existed between the duo, who reportedly met in 2021 at a shopping mall in the city. Different persons including family and friends have also put forward different theories as to the reason for the killing. 

Although the Chinese lover was arraigned on Wednesday for culpable homicide of Ummita Buhari before a magistrates’ court in the state metropolis and remanded in a custodial centre, the decision of the police not to parade him, contrary to the custom of Nigeria law enforcement agencies, has robbed the public the opportunity to immediately hear directly from the suspect. 


But of the numerous and mostly conflicting narrations awash on social media since her death, what stood unrefuted was that the deceased, who was a divorcee, and the suspect were romantically involved. Family and friends of the deceased as well as prominent Islamic cleric, Sheikh Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa, who said the deceased called him to ask for his advice on marrying a Chinese man, corroborated this. 

However, some social media users have gone on to describe the relationship between the Chinese lover and Ummita Buhari as such where the suspect had invested heavily with the hope that the deceased would marry him. Others, while attempting to situate the horror of last Friday as a crime of passion, had suggested that investments of the suspect included sponsoring her education, buying a house and a car for her, which they insinuated made him feel jilted when he realised he would not be allowed to marry her. 

Daily Trust spoke with the immediate elder brother of the deceased and one of her best friends to get an insight into the love affair that existed between the suspect and the deceased. 

The elder brother, Sadiq Sani Buhari, said contrary to rumour making the rounds that his sister was sponsored to school outside the country by the suspect, the deceased was a final year student of Usmanu Danfodio University, Sokoto, where she was studying B.Sc. Agricultural Science. He said but for the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), his sister would have been rounding off her academic pursuits and probably not in Kano for the crime to have been committed. 

“Contrary to what people are saying, my sister hasn’t been to any other country, even the closest country, like the Niger Republic she hasn’t been there. So the talk of her being sponsored in a foreign institution by the suspect was just mischief,” he said in dismissing earlier reports that the Chinese lover sponsored Ummita Buhari abroad to school. 

On the type of relationship that existed between his late sister and the suspect, Buhari said “I knew him, he loved her so much, as you know people like them do love a person with all their heart. He even proposed to marry her, but the fact that we differ in our beliefs, it was hard for him to get her hand in marriage. So she was stopped from having any affair with him by our parents.” 

He explained that his sister and the accused met in 2021 and as such the talk that the accused bought their family house for them was ridiculous because they had been in the house for over 10 years. 

“How is it possible that a man my sister met just last year is the one that bought a house we have been occupying since 2011 for us?” he asked. 

“We have lived here since before the death of our father. Our father was a civil servant, who worked with the DSS before his death. We relocated to Kano from Sokoto where Ummita was born around 2007 and he bought this house around 2011,” he added. 

Buhari admitted that the suspect was generous to his sister but not to the extent being insinuated on social media. 

“Of course, he bought things for her, and gave her money; that, I know. But even the phone she was using, she bought it herself. The talk that he bought a car for her was nothing other than mischief. We don’t even have a car at home nor does my sister have a car but knew how to drive a car as she usually drives her friends’ cars,” he said. 

Buhari added that he was shocked when he learnt of what happened to his sister “because she was the last person I talked to before leaving the house. I call on the authorities concerned to look into the matter and ensure we get justice as there will be nothing to compensate for her.” 

Corroborating most of the points of Buhari, Rabia N. Garba, who described herself as the best friend of the deceased, further revealed that because of the “strong” love the suspect had for her friend, he “converted” to Islam and adopted Faisal as against Frank, which they knew him as. 

“With the little I know of him, he is a person who gets frustrated over silly things; even late replies while chatting gets him frustrated. My friend made all efforts to stop him from falling for her but she later decided to date him because he claimed to have reverted to Islam,” Rabia told Daily Trust in an interview earlier in the week. 

She said when her friend got married in February, the suspect agreed to leave her alone but after the marriage hit the rocks, he came back into her life. 

Rabia suggested that her friend did not want the relationship to go ahead even after her divorce. 

But while what led to the brutal stabbing to death of Ummita Buhari remains unclear, the narration of the mother of the deceased pointed to a premeditated crime by the Chinese lover

“He (the suspect) always comes around wanting to see her and she has been refusing. This time around when he came, he kept knocking on the door. When I was fed up with him hitting the door loudly, I opened the door and he pushed me aside and got in and started stabbing her with a knife,” the bereaved mother had said.

News Update?Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Sitting Begins October 26

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on October 26 begin a full hearing of the petition filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the declaration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor-elect.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the tribunal made this pronouncement after concluding the pre-hearing session on Thursday.

The tribunal was asked to dismiss the applications of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking the discontinuation of the petition brought to it by Governor Oyetola.

Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Lasun Sanusi, SAN, at the sitting of the tribunal argued that Adeleke’s, PDP’s and INEC’s reliance on a Federal Court High judgment was nothing but an abuse of court process.

Sanusi argued this while replying to separate applications of the trio, seeking the dismissal of the petition based on the already appealed Federal High Court judgment disqualifying Oyetola from contesting the election.

Citing Supreme Court decisions in the case of Jegede Vs INEC, 2021, 14NWLR, Pt 1797, page 409, the counsel said the court had ruled that the signatories to the letter conveying the nomination of a candidate were not the nominators; rather, the nomination was done by party members at the congress, hence, the judgment could not stand.

Meanwhile, the counsel for INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, SAN; counsel for Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN and counsel for the PDP, Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN, agreed that any decision the tribunal would take on the matter would have to wait until the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court decided on it.

They noted that they just decided to argue the applications to have it on record, a position which the tribunal agreed with and put on record.

Also, in other applications totalling nine by the three respondents, they asked the tribunal to strike out some paragraphs of the petition on the grounds that they were either lumped together or not related to the 2022 election.

In response to each of the applications, Sanusi said all the cases cited by the respondents were misconceived, adding that they were not applicable in the instance case.

He cited the case of INEC Vs Otti, 2016, 8NWLR, where the Supreme Court hinted that INEC was supposed to be neutral, arguing that all the processes filed before the panel have not portrayed the commission’s neutrality.

Sanusi further argued that the applications filed by the respondents were only meant to prevent the tribunal from focusing on hearing the petition on merit, asking the panel to dismiss the applications.

Subsequently, counsel for all parties in the matter agreed to begin the full hearing starting with the calling of witnesses on October 26.

In his ruling, the tribunal declared the pre-hearing session concluded and announced that the pre-hearing conference report would be presented on October 17.
