300-level IMSU Student Stabs FUTO Final Year Undergraduate To Death


March 01, (THEWILL) – The Operatives of the Imo State Police said the Command has arrested an alleged 300-level student of Imo State University (IMSU) Owerri, Francis Marvellous, aged from Ehime Mbano LGA, for stabbing to death one Chinagorom Marvellous Kingsley ‘m’ 22years, who is a final year student of the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) and a member the University’s Man O’ War Unit.

In a Press release signed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Henry Okoye, the arrest was a sequel to a swift response to a distress call received from the Chief Security Officer (CSO) of FUTO, retired DSP Patrick Egwu, by police operatives on convoy patrol, who promptly arrested the suspect, who was almost lynched at the scene by an angry mob.

“The body of the victim was recovered and rushed to Federal University Teaching Hospital, Owerri, where he was confirmed dead and deposited at the mortuary.”

The release further reads, “On interrogation the suspect confessed to the crime, admitting that he had a heated argument with personnel of the University’s Man O’ War Unit on 29/03/2024, at about 2200hrs during which he brought out a knife he neatly concealed in his trousers and stabbed the victim to death.”

The Police also said that efforts are on top gear to arrest other suspects to ascertain their involvement in the case, saying they would be arraigned in court upon completion of a comprehensive investigation by the State Criminal Investigation Department SCID.

The Command therefore dispeled the false narratives making the rounds on social media that the victim was stabbed to death by Hausa Fulani, warning that the misinformation is the handiwork of mischief makers, who want to provoke unnecessary intertribal conflict between the good people of Imo State and the Northerners residing in the State.

“Accordingly, the Commissioner of Police Imo State Command, CP Aboki Danjuma, has directed the deputy commissioner of Police in charge of the State Criminal Investigation Department to take charge of the case and ensure that the suspects involved in this case and purveyors of fake news are arrested made to face the full wrath of the law”, it warned.
