Anthony Chinweotito Emmanuel, identified as the victim, was allegedly killed by his caretaker over rent payment issues.
The incident occurred on Tuesday at an off-campus hostel called Ezinwanne Lodge, but the deceased, a first-year student of the Department of Building Technology, died on Saturday night, February 6, in a hospital.
The caretaker, whose name could not be ascertained, was caught hitting the student with a wood on his stomach.
The caretaker had locked up the water supply, according to some of the students in the hostel, because some students refused to pay the full house rent.
Caretaker Kills Student Over House Rent
However, after the Covid-19 lockdown, the students who argued that they did not live in the hostel between March 2020 and January 2021, opened the tap and fetch water later.
When the caretaker came back and saw the tap open, He used Saw to cut the water pipe open. This led to an argument in which he allegedly picked up a wood and struck the dead person.
After the incident, the caretaker was said to have run away, leaving Anthony in a pool of blood.
Anthony was rushed to a nearby hospital by fellow students, but he was rejected. Later, he was taken to the Owerri Federal Medical Centre, where he died on Saturday.
A divisional police officer in charge of the Nekede Police Station, who confirmed the incident to The Nation, said the caretaker was in police custody and the case would be handed over for further investigation to the State CID on Monday.
