A High Court in Kano has arraigned the Chinese national, Geng Quangrong, accused of killing a graduate from Ugandan University, Ummulkulsum Buhari.
The Court, presided by Justice Sanusi Ado Ma’aji, fixed 4th October 2022 to formally arraign the Chinese.
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.
