Gunmen kill 400-Level student of FUT Minna

Gunmen suspected to be armed robbers on Saturday killed a 400-level student of Federal University of Technology, Minna, for daring to intervene while they attempted to rob a female student of the tertiary institution.

Investigations by Leadership News revealed that the female student, while returning from the school, was trailed to her apartment by the suspected armed robbers who forced her door open. But her shouts for help prompted the deceased to responded to his distressed neighbour.

The deceased, identified as Emmanuel, was reportedly shot by the hoodlums immediately he opened the door of his apartment.

An eye witness said that  the hoodlums left shortly after killing the student without taking anything in the house.

“We heard a gun shot and the voice of Emmanuel pleading with the attackers.

“He called for our help but we didn’t go for his rescue because we were afraid,” A witness said.

The Police Public Relation Officer, Mr. Richard Oguche confirmed the incident, saying that the police had since swung into action and promising to unravel those behind the act.

“We have launched a manhunt for the fleeing robbers and we are working hard toward arresting them”, he said.


  1. Is a pity, police should seriously take up the matter to make sure that the people involve in such at are brought to book. May his soul rest in peace.

  2. How many souls shall be lost to our state of insecurity in this country? May God save us and grant the family of the deceased the fortitude to bear this irreparable lost.

  3. The punishment for criminal offences in Nigeria is virtually non existent – for civil offences is a pact on the back. That explains why youths 15-25yrs old go about with illegal arms/ammunitions violently killing everyone in their way. These youths start off as bastards-south to almagiris-north and graduate to militants-south to boko haram-north. The elders 40-70yrs are busy struggling for political/economic power thinking they are immunued. But very soon that may not be so any longer. So it is high time Nigeria makes/implements laws that make fathers/mothers fully responsible for the upkeep/actions of their children especially below 18yrs and partly responsible for their violent actions up to 25yrs.

  4. May her rest in perfect peace .Is only god cn help us in dis country,we cn’t blame our police officers bcos is nt possible 4 them 2 be protec ur individually.Bt i cn adevice dem 2 make sure they ware do d right thing @ right time.

  5. I want to agree and support Freemind suggestions. Parents must be ready to bear the consequences of their wards actions. For how long are we going to live in Nigeria like this? Nigeria Police, wake up to your responsiblility. It is high time States Police is embraced to tackle the problems of insecurity in Nigeria. May the soul of departed rest in peace.

  6. Good nigerian Mr Emmanuel,bad robbers,bad force men,worst country,empty promise d police wont do anytin,may his kind soul rest in peace
