It was gathered that Ado-Maje was expelled from the school due to his unruly behaviour which could be traced to his altercation with the deceased over a girl and he allegedly stormed the school to settle scores with Salisu whom he suspected to have snatched his girlfriend and the encounter led to his stabbing the young man to death with a dagger.

Eyewitnesses say that as soon as Ado-Maje arrived the school premises, he went straight for Usman and after a brief row between the two, the suspect brought out the dagger he had hidden in his trouser and stabbed the victim.

"I saw Salisu soaked in blood on the floor while efforts made by other bystanders to apprehended the assailant failed,” a witness recalled.

The spokesman of the State Police Command, DSP Musa Magaji Majiya, said the suspect was later apprehended after he had tried to escape justice.

“The suspect is now in custody at the Kwalli Police Division and would be arraigned as soon as we complete our investigation.

I want to assure everyone that this matter would be followed to its logical conclusion," he said.
