A Nigerian university student has attacked and killed his own colleague over a girlfriend in Kogi.
It all started with an argument in their hostel.
The quarrel became tragic when Yusuf Jimoh, a 100-Level Banking and Finance student, allegedly stabbed Sheriff Ali Umar, his 300-Level Philosophy counterpart and hostel mate at the Kogi State University (KSU) in Ayingba, to death.
Both students, CAMPUSLIFE gathered, were allegedly locked in a tussle over a girlfriend. In the heat of their argument, some people intervened and urged them to forget the issue. But they refused.
In the twinkling of an eye, they started exchanging blows. Yusuf, whose nickname was given as Santa Claus, allegedly broke a bottle and stabbed Sheriff in the neck.
By the time their hostel mates rushed to the scene, Sheriff was in a pool of blood. Yusuf reportedly fled the scene while his Sheriff was rushed to hospital.
