The Kogi state police command apprehended a 100 level student of Kogi State University who stabbed another student to death on his birthday and then ran away.
Yusuf, popularly known as Santa cruise, a 100 level student of the Department of Public Administration, allegedly stabbed Ali Umar Shariff, a 300 level student of the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, with a broken bottle.
