A Kano High Court sitting at Miller road has adjourned the hearing of Chinese national, Geng Quangrong, who got accused of killing his Nigerian lover, Ummukulsum Sani Buhari, over absence of interpreter.
Mr Quandong, 47, allegedly murdered Ummukulsum, 23, at Janbalu quarters for allegedly refusing his hand in marriage.
At the resumed hearing on Tuesday, October 4, 2022, Muhammad Dan’azumi, the defence counsel, notified the court that an interpreter had not been provided for the accused.
The case, which was originally slated to commence last week Monday, was adjourned to Tuesday due to a lack of legal representation for Mr Quandong.
Mr Quandong addressed the court in Chinese, which made it difficult for the parties involved including the magistrate to comprehend the message.
The Magistrate, Justice Sunusi Ado Ma’aji adjourned the case to 27 October, with the hope that an interpreter would have been found to explain the charges to Mr Quandong in Chinese.
