Tragedy occurred on Wednesday morning, as a student of First Grade College in Kano, one Sadik Ado-maje, allegedly stabbed his colleague, Usman Salish, to death. An eyewitness account said in Kano Thursday that the incident occurred around 11:00 a.m. of the fateful 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 when incident happened.
It was learnt that when he reached the school area, he met his brother engaged in a fight with Ado-maje and decided to settle the quarrel between them.
The intervention of Salisu angered the suspect (Ado-maje), who thought
that Salisu intervened in the matter in favour of his brother. Consequently, the suspect quickly stabbed the deceased with a knife on his stomach. Salisu was immediately 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. Police 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.
