A student of Physics in the Federal University Lokoja (FUL) in Kogi State, identified simply as Williams, was reportedly stabbed to death on Saturday by an SS3 student for allegedly toasting the secondary student’s elder sister.
City & Crime reports that before the incident in the late Williams’ father’s compound at the 200 Housing Estate (Old Poly Quarters) in Lokoja, the victim, it was gathered, was having issues bothering on love with the sister of the assailant.
A source explained that Williams’ assailant came to the compound in the Old Poly Quarters demanding to see him to assist him in a particular subject, feigning to be preparing for WAEC exams.
City & Crime gathered that the late Williams’ father who did not suspect the ulterior motive of the assailant pointed Williams’ room to him and that he went into the room and stabbed Williams in the stomach and rushed out of the house.
Williams was said to have died before his family could rush him to the Specialist Hospital, Lokoja.
City & Crime further learnt that the suspect was later arrested by the police.
The spokesman of FUL, Mr Daniel Iyke, who confirmed the incident, said, “The police are on the matter. The thing is that the student lived with his parents. The stabbing happened in his house as alleged.”
The Kogi State Police Command’s spokesman, SP William Aya, did not respond to a call and an SMS on the incident.
