A final year student of the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, ATBU, Bauchi State, Joseph Agbabaidu, has been reportedly stabbed to death in an attempt to steal his phone.
Agabaidu, a 500-level student in the Department of Geology, was stabbed to death by robbers on Saturday evening at about 7 p.m.
He was said to be heading to his residence at Yelwan Tudu, about one kilometre from the school gate, where he was stabbed by a robbery gang.
Vanguard reports that he gave up the ghost on Sunday morning, despite efforts by health personnel to save him.
“In the wake of this heartbreaking loss, we implore the school management, the police, and the Bauchi State government to prioritize and enhance the security of students within the state.
“Our community should not have to endure such sorrow. Proactive measures are crucial to preventing further tragedies.
“May the soul of Agabaidu Obiaje Joseph rest in peace,” a student who pleaded anonymity said.
Following this, a students’ protest erupted in and around the school environment in the Yelwa area of Bauchi metropolis on Monday morning.
However, policemen in patrol vehicles took control of the situation to maintain law and order.
