A student of First Grade College in Kano, Sadik Ado-maje, has stabbed his colleague, Usman Salisu, to death.
An eyewitness told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Thursday that the incident happened around 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday.
According to the witness, the incident happened during a fight that ensued between the deceased’s brother and Ado-maje at the school gate.
The witness added that the deceased, who was transferred to another school to complete his SSS studies, was in the school to collect his JSS 3 Placement Examination result.
It was learnt that when he reached the school area, he met his brother in an ensuing fight with Ado-maje and decided to settle the quarrel between them.
The intervention of Salisu angered the suspect (Ado-maje), who thought that he intervened in the matter in favour of his brother, when he quickly stabbed him with a knife on his stomach.
Salisu was rushed to the hospital where he was later confirmed dead.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Kano State Command, DSP Magaji Majiya, confirmed the incident.
He said the suspect ran away but was later apprehended, adding that “the suspect is now cooling his feet at the Kwalli Police Division”.
Majiya said as soon as investigations were completed, the suspect would be charged to court.
