According to a source, “His friends and fellow students accused him of stealing a phone belonging to another student.
“They tied him to an electric pole, poured cold water on him and continue torturing him in their bid to force him to confess to the crime.
“When he fainted, some of the students rushed him to Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching hospital and was confirmed death on arrival,” the source revealed.
The provost of the College, Nasir A. Musa while speaking to Daily Trust on phone, said he was not aware of the development until the management of UDUTH informed him on Sunday morning as both the victim and his killers were living off-campus.
“So I called one of our staff who went to the hospital. I equally informed the Divisional Police Officer of Gwadabawa who led his men to the scene of the incident and arrested some of the perpetrators.
“We have already dismissed some of the students involved to serve as deterrents to others. Because if we allow them go score free other students can do a similar thing in the future,” the provost added.
