A certain Chinedu Linus, a student of Ebonyi State University (EBSU), Abakaliki, has been killed by gunmen on Friday, in Ebonyi.

According to Spokesperson of the Ebonyi state police  command, ASP Loveth Odah, Linus was first robbed before he was eventually killed him. 

“I urge students not to confront robbers or any person bearing arms whenever they are attacked because such a person was no longer normal. .
It is only a living person that makes use of valuables as no amount of valuables in ones’ possession can equate to life,” she said.

The robbers according to a witness gained entrance into the Lucky City Hostel, where the deceased resided.  A witness, Eric John, who is 200-level student of Political Science in the University,  “We heard loud knocks on our gate and Chinedu who is the students’ leader at the hostel, brandished a rod to ascertain the person knocking at the gate. .

The robbers grabbed him and started asking where he kept the money as we suddenly heard gun shots. They entered my room, robbed me of N15,000 and two cell phones and robbed the entire occupants of the hostel; they took the money we contributed for electricity bills.”
