The police in Enugu have begun investigations into the stabbing to death of a 400-level University of Nigeria, Nsukka, (UNN) student by a 200-level student of the institution.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement on Saturday in Enugu that the incident happened on July 31 in Nsukka.

“The suspect later identified as Nnamdi Asogwa, 23, said to be a 200-level student of UNN, allegedly stabbed one Chukwudi Mba, a 400-level student of Public Administration of UNN to death,” said Ms Amaraizu, a superintendent of police.

“The suspect allegedly struck on the back of the victim with a knife at their lodge identified as Alfred’s Lodge in Nsukka town over a yet to be established issue.

“It was further gathered that following the incident, the victim was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was later confirmed dead by a doctor on duty,’’ he said.
