A 300L student of Benue State University, Makurdi, simply identified as Samuel Agbajir, of the geography department was on Thursday crushed to death on his way from school.
DAILY POST gathered that the student was knocked down by a motorcycle, famously known as okada while trying to cross the road.
The incident, according to eyewitness happened on after the second gate of the institution when the deceased and his friends left school for home.
“He was rushed to the teaching hospital but the doctor confirmed him dead on arrival,” a source told our reporter.
This was contrary to the report that he was crushed to death while jubilating after graduation.
Speaking with our correspondent, a friend who gave his name as Ireogbu, debunked the claims that the late Agbajir was a member of the black axe fraternity who was killed while jubilating after graduation.
“People are just posting rubbish to get comments on social media. First, the late Samuel is a 300L student and not a fresh graduate. He was never jubilating as widely claimed. Samuel is not a cultist and has never been a member of any such group. He was a gentle, kind and intelligent guy. May his soul rest in peace,” he told DAILY POST in Makurdi.
