The chief magistrate, Hanif Yusuf, granted the request and adjourned the case till October 13.
On September 17, the Chinese according to the state Police Public Relations Officer, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, invaded the deceased home through a fence and stabbed her repeatedly until she died.
Buhari was then buried on Saturday, September 17.
