Two students of Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida University Lapai and one from the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria were Thursday, remanded in prison custody by a Minna Magistrates’ Court, for allegedly killing a fellow student on suspicion of stealing an HTC handset, valued N32, 000.

The trio, Idris Usman and Jibrin Attahiru both of the Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida University, Lapai and one other student, Shehu Abdullahi from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, were docked on a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide, contrary to Sections 97 and 221 of the Penal Code law.

The Police Prosecutor, Sgt. John Steven, disclosed to the court that one Mohammed Aliyu, the Chief Security Officer of IBB University Lapai, reported the matter at the station on July 24.

According to the prosecutor, the complainant alleged that on July 23, the accused persons suspected one Mubarak Sanusi, a student of IBB University, of stealing an HTC handset, valued N32, 000 belonging to one of them.

Steven told the court that the accused persons picked up Sanusi and took him to their lodge, where they beat him up and detained him inside the toilet. Sanusi was said to have been brought out of the toilet and rushed to a hospital after they discovered that his condition deteriorated.

Steven said Sanusi reportedly gave up the ghost on the way to the General Hospital, Lapai, the following day.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to them.

The Police prosecutor thereafter, urged the court to adjourn the matter, saying that investigation was still ongoing into the matter.

The head of the court, Magistrate Fati Auna, in her ruling, ordered the accused persons to be remanded in prison, adjourning the matter until Sept. 3.

  1. You should take part in a contest for one of the best sites on the internet. I most certainly will recommend this website!

  2. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something regarding this.
