Friend gives eyewitness account of Law student’s killing


Yusuf Fdason, bereaved friend of Late Shedrach Kums, a University of Joslaw student, the latest victim of vile activities of militia Fulani herdsmen has given an eyewitness account of the deceased’s last moment.

Kums, who was in 300-level, was shot to death on Sunday on the campus in Village Hostel by bloodthirsty herdsmen, who broke into the hostel to attack students, killing him and injuring three others.

Yusuf in a lengthy and emotional post on Facebook denied reports that Late Kums was killed outside the school hostel and gave a blow-by-blow account of the incident.

The post unedited:


I lost a brother,a friend and my twin today being the 30th day of September.
The painful path is the responses coming from various unions such as the *NAPPSS, and LSS*.
U failed to get whole story and decided to post what u feel like posting.
*IF I DIE IN THE STRUGGLE THEN SO BE IT* this was his last post on his facebook handle yesterday.
It all started with a great call *GREAT JOSSITES* and it would amaze you that this call came from *KUMS SHEDRACK FENAN* he alarted the hostel community as to the state of affairs of things. The guys across the road were making processes to come into the hostel vecinity when he alarted us. He saved the whole student village. Not only that he also *saved a woman and her barely four(4) months old baby across the road who wanted travelling*
Now this woman is stranded in the hostel but her saviour is no more.
Not quite long soldiers came and started shooting. At that moment I saw a fair soilder who came and shoot his gun(ak47) at were the students were. Not long after that did I see students shouting *nasu ne Nasu ne* meaning their own. On trying to access the situation I discovered it was KUMS SHEDRACK FENAN who had been shot on the head.
At that moment I was restless but managed to try ND stop the bleeding but to no avail. Attempts were made to rush him to clinic which proved abortive. Also the whole clinic in Russua could not still help his situation.

For all those claiming he was shot outside the hostel premises I beg u don’t spread things u don’t know. As he was shot inside the hostel.
Now KUMS is dead but I call on all jossities that his death be not be in vain. On this I urged the VICE CHANCELLOR and the DEAN OF STUDENTS AFFAIRS and all other person’s that the STUDENTS HOSTEL COMMUNITY SHOULD BE PROPERLY FENCED AND APPROPRIATE SECURITY BE PROVIDED.

ON this I call on all jossities to help reboardcast till justice is gotten for him as he has sacrificed his life for we all. As he died i
