Mr. Geng Quangrong, the Chinese national accused of murdering a graduate of Ugandan University, Ummulkulsum Buhari, has been arraigned before a State High Court competent to hear the homicide case.
The Chinese will be formally charged on October 4, 2022, according to a date set by the court, which is presided over by Justice Sanusi Ado Ma’aji.
When the case resumed on Thursday for arraignment, Mr Quarong sought an adjournment to enable him to contact his counsel to represent him.
In his response, Kano State Attorney General Barrister Musa Abdullahi Lawan didn’t raise an objection to the defendant’s prayer to adjourn the matter.
“Obviously this case cannot go on today without a counsel standing for the defendant, It is capital in nature in the circumstances we apply for a short adjournment,” Kano Attorney General prayed.
Consequently, Justice Ma’aji adjourned the case until 4th October 2022 for arraignment.
