Teenage thugs rob 21-yr-old student, stab him to death for asking for sim cards
A 21-year-old student has been stabbed to death by unidentified teenage thugs in Sango area of Minna after he begged them to give him the sim cards in the phone they seized from him.
Mohammed Abubakar Nagenu was attacked by knife-wielding thugs around 6pm on Friday.
After handing over his phone, Nagenu begged for his sim cards, drawing his assailants’ ire.
The thugs then stabbed him multiple times until he died.
An uncle to the deceased, Mallam Mohammed Ndagi, Nagenu had only recently arrived Minna to process his admission into one of the tertiary institutions.
He said the thugs have been terrorizing the area.
“They have been terrorizing people," he said.
"They take advantage of the students of the State College of Education, Minna."
He believes his nephew was targeted because they knew he was a stranger in the community.
"They will not do it to the people they know.
"My nephew just came from the village recently they did not know him; that is why they decided to attack him."
He said the case has been reported at Chanchaga police division and three of the suspected murderers have been taken into custody.
