Haruna said the command received a distress call at about 10:00 p.m. on Friday and the state’s Commissioner of Police, Mr. Lawal Abubakar, dispatched a team to the scene.
He said: “The 47- year-old Chinese visited the residence of his girlfriend, Miss Ummukulthum Sani, 22 and they engaged in an argument before he allegedly stabbed her many times with a knife.”
“The police team reached the scene of the incident and rushed the victim to Murtala Muhammed Specialist Hospital where she was confirmed dead.
“An in-depth investigation into the case had been launched on the orders of the Commissioner of Police.”
The mother of the deceased, who was also at the briefing, said her daughter was in a relationship with the suspect before she got married about three years ago.
She said: “The marriage failed after three months which made the Chinese stalk their house although her daughter never paid attention to him.
“But on that fateful Friday evening, the sound of his knock on the gate was too disturbing and I decided to open it and he pushed me and gained entrance to her room.
“He stabbed her multiple times with a knife despite my struggle to rescue her and my cries for help were also not heard due to heavy rain.”
