I wrote a fiction-based story of a boy “James” who was murdered. I woke up to read this story of a real murder.
The Nigerian Telegraph: School prefect stabbed to death in Calabar for seizing sandals
Posted by Jewel Stephen
A 20-year-old, Godwin Odu, has been arrested by the police in Calabar for allegedly stabbing Boniface Odinaka, a student of Army Day Secondary School, Eburutu Barracks to death.
Odinaka, who was the Labour Prefect of the school, was attacked for confiscating the sandals of another student, Francis Etim, who called on his friend Odu an alleged cultist to help deal with Francis.
Odu, who is from Akwa Ibom State, is currently detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department, CID, Diamond Hill, Calabar.
Speaking on why he killed Odinaka, he said his friend, Francis Etim, asked him to assist him recover a pair of sandals, which Odinaka seized over alleged improper dressing.
In a statement at the Homicide Unit of the state CID, Odu confirmed that he attacked Odinaka from the rear and as the SSS II boy struggled to free himself, it resulted in a fight, which caused his death.
Fielding questions from the Officer-in-Charge of Homicide, DSP Joseph Inuyashe, Odu said, “The boy, Odinaka, is the cause of everything that has brought me here. My friend, Francis Etim, came from school and told me that one senior student seized his sandals.”
Minutes after Odinaka was killed, Etim fled the area, but he was later arrested.
Odu, who was identified as a drop-out, said he attended Government Technical School, Ikot Ansa, Calabar but abandoned his studies as “some bad boys were after me.”
He pleaded that he was still a minor, claiming he was 14 years old, but when asked the year he was born, and the years he was in primary and secondary school, he later admitted to being 20 years old.
DSP Inuyashe said the state government frowns at cultism and other nefarious acts, saying that Udo would promptly be charged to court, since he has admitted killing the boy.
My story continues with this….watch out!!!
