LAGOS—Saka Hammed, the 19-year-old student of Gaskia College, Amukoko, Lagos, who allegedly stabbed a prefect, Saheed Jimoh, to death on Wednesday for punishing him over lateness, has been arrested by police.

He was said to have been arrested by policemen attached to Amukoko Division, in his hideout somewhere around the vicinity, at about 6.40p.m., yesterday.

Also arrested earlier were six students of the college.

Vanguard gathered that before his arrest , the suspect’s father was invited by the Police for questioning. At 2p.m., he was still being interrogated by the police.

When Vanguard visited Gaskia College yesterday, normal school activities had resumed as students were seen in their respective classes receiving lectures. Officials from the office of Educational Quality Assurance, Zone 14, were also sighted in the school, compiling reports of the incident.

The school’s Principal was not around, but a man who identified himself as the Vice Principal, was hostile to reporters, saying he was not authorized to speak to the press.

However, a student, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “There are several cult factions in the school. It is an open secret that many students are involved in cult-related activities and the use of charms.

“One of the common charms used by some of the students is called no touch blood, which is a very poisonous charm that kills instantly when it comes in contact with blood.

“Perhaps, in the case of Saheed, his killer could have tried to test the potency of the charm.”

Another senior student revealed that that the fleeing Saka Hammed only resumed for the term on Monday.

The student said: “He failed woefully and was supposed to repeat SSS 2. He was in the same class with the deceased, who was promoted SSS 3. But he stopped coming to school.

“On Monday, his father brought him to school to see the principal. Only for the incident to occur on Wednesday.”

A police source told Vanguard that the case would be investigated to its logical conclusion.
