Students Beat Up Fellow Student To Death
Three students have been remanded in prison by a Minna Magistrates’ Court for allegedly beating and detaining a fellow student for stealing an HTC handset valued at N32,000.
The accused persons are, Jibrin Attahiru and Idris Usman, both of the Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida University, Lapai and one other student, Shehu Abdullahi from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
The three students were docked on charges of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide, contrary to Sections 97 and 221 of the Penal Code law.
The Police Prosecutor, Sgt. John Steven, told the court that one Mohammed Aliyu, the Chief Security Officer of IBB University Lapai, reported the matter at the station on July 24.
Steven quoted the complainant as alleging that the incidence occurred on July 23, when the accused persons suspected one Mubarak Sanusi, a student of the same institution, to have stolen an HTC handset, valued N32, 000 belonging to one of them.
He said they then took Sanusi to their lodge, where they beat him up and locked him up in the toilet.
He said Sanusi died on the way to the General Hospital, Lapai the following day.
When the charge was read to them, they all pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, thereafter, prayed the court for adjournment, as investigation into the matter was still ongoing.
In her ruling, Magistrate Fati Auna, ordered the accused persons to be remanded in prison and adjourned the matter until Sept. 3Copyright Naija News 2018. All rights reserved. You may only share Naija News content using our sharing buttons. Send all news and press releases to [email protected].
