A student, Yusuf Isah Adi, has been hacked to death with a cutlass in Ugah area of Lafia, Nasarawa State.
A community leader, Musa Saidu, told our reporter on Thursday that the late Adi was attacked when he was sleeping by one Rabiu Musa Omiya.
Saidu alleged that Omiya hit Adi with a cutlass on his head and also injured Adi’s younger brother during the attack.
He said, while the younger brother of Adi is still receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital, the late Adi lost too much blood and died.
Before his death, Yusuf was a student with the College of Health Science and Technology, Keffi Nasarawa State.
