Tragedy struck yesterday at the Government Technical College, Malali in Kaduna north local government area of Kaduna state, when a 19 year old student, Mohammed Sani was found dead on his bed in the school hostel with machete cuts on his body.
Father of the deceased, Alhaji Harisu Sani, said he received a call from the Principal of the School around 4:30am. He asked if he was the father of Mohammed Sani and upon confirmation, he was instructed to rush down to the school because his son is dead.
“Based on this, I dashed to the school thinking my son passed away in his sleep but when I arrived at his hostel, I saw him in the pool of his own blood, stabbed on the right side of his chest with a sharp object which I suspected to be a knife.”
“What baffled me most was that there are about 200 students in the hostel and I wonder why none of them saw the killer or killers and did not raise any alarm. I believe that my son was killed by somebody within. The school authority and the state government should tell me what happened to my son because as a boarding student, he was in their custody” he said.
The father, who resides at Michika road, Tudun Nupawa in Kaduna south Local Government, told newsmen that he is going to use all available legal means to ensure that justice is done on behalf of his son.
