Tension mount at Husseini Adamu Federal Polytechnic Kazaure when the news of stabbing an NDE 2 accounting student by named Faiza Musa by her boyfriend Tolu Joshua broke the campus of the Institution.
The unfortunate incidence occurred when an outraged 26-year-old Tolu Joshua stabbed his girlfriend, 21-year-old Faiza Musa on her back in front of the female hostel of the school.
The incidence, which was said to have been suppressed from the public by the school authorities to avoid tension from further brewing while the victim, Faiza, an NDE 2 Accounting student, was taken to Aminu Kano Teaching hospital in Kano for treatment.
According to an eyewitness account from within the school the couple have been dating for some time before suddenly Faiza realised that her boyfriend Tolu was only interested in her money and then called the relationship quits.
The break-up did not go down well with Tolu who had been enjoying the favour of using Faiza’s ATM at will whenever her parents sent her money from Kogi state.
The Faiza was said to have even reported to her parents that Tolu is still milking her account dry despite the break-up as he has refused to let go of her ATM card that has been in his possession.
However, the fateful day of the incident was when Tolu allegedly called Faiza on her phone that he would like to have an undisclosed discussion with her.
According to her roommates, Faiza told them that Tolu called to see her briefly in front of the female hostel, which they all encouraged her to go only for her to be found later in the pool of her own blood.
Witnesses told INDEPENDENT that Tolu has earlier allegedly stabbed the victim on the back and stuffed her mouth with sand apparently to choke and to prevent her from shouting.
When contacted the Provost of the School, Architect Shamsudeen Salisu Dambatta, confirmed the incident but insisted that the story making the rounds that the girl was dead is not true because she is, according to his statement, “fast recovering from the injury she has sustained.”
The Provost, who spoke with INDEPENDENT via phone, said he is in contact with the father of the victim and that the girl is presently alive and responding to treatment at the AKTH in Kano.
He said he would not divulge any further information on the matter since the details is still being investigated by the police.
