UNIJOS student beaten to death by course mates over N30k bribe for grades

A 300-level medical student of the University of Jos (Unijos), Abdulsalam Idris, has died after allegedly sustaining severe injuries following an assault by a group allegedly led by a fellow student identified as Fisal Dahiru Ibrahim. 


According to the Daily Trust, the student died in the institution’s clinic on Thursday, April 4, 2024.


Unijos’ security unit confirmed the death, saying the corpse had been transferred to the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) for autopsy.


The acting Chief Security Officer of Unijos, Agama Solomon, said the suspect claimed to have given Abdulsalam N30,000 to bribe a technician for exam grades but that when the results were released and the suspect failed he reportedly orchestrated an attack that led to Abdulsalam’s death.


He noted that the suspect had been apprehended and handed over to the police.


It was learnt that the incident occurred shortly after both the victim and the suspect completed their final examination in the 300L


The death of Abdulsalam sparked concerns among his peers, who believed that such a violent outcome was unjustified and that he did not deserve to be treated in a manner that led to his death.
