Students stab lecturer to death


Yet to be identified students of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, on Thursday night, stabbed a senior lecturer of the school, Mr. Anthony Abimaje, to death  during a  riot that broke out on  campus.

An eye witness said the lecturer, who was on his way to pick his wife and daughter who sells provision at the school centre, came to the scene of the riot   when he was stabbed in the stomach by the students.

Investigation revealed that Amebija was a strict lecturer who was fond of refusing bribe  to award marks to students which apparently put him in the ‘black book’ of the warring students.

”On sighting him, the students forgot their quarrel, stopped his car, dragged him out, turned the fight on him and stabbed him repeatedly in the stomach and left him bleeding on the ground”, the eye witness said.

Amebija, who taught  research methodology and entrepreneurship before his death, was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
