JUST IN; University Lecturer stabbed to death in his office


A lecturer at the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) has been murdered in his office.

According to TheCable, the Lecturer has been identified as Kamar Abdulkadir, a PhD holder at UNIMAID’s Department of Physical Health Education.

Abdulkadir was found dead in the pool of his blood on Sunday with several injuries inflicted on his body by his killers.

Sources who spoke to TheCable said the lecturer’s bodily injuries indicated he was attacked with a knife and hammer.

The killers, one source added, also carted away the lecturer’s vehicle and other valuables.

“His hands were peeled off when he tried to stop the attackers from stabbing him. They also used a hammer to smash his head and his spinal cord, killing him instantly,” the source said.

The UNIMAID case comes as the latest in a series of violent crimes that have hit campuses and academics.

In October 2023, Funmilola Adefolalu, a female lecturer at the Federal University of Technology (FUT) Minna was found dead.

The lecturer was found lying in a pool of blood at her residence in the Gbaiko area of Minna.

The police, at the time, said two knives with blood stains suspected to have been used to stab her were found at the scene.

In March 2024, a 400-level student of the Abia State University (ABSU) was killed in a clash between rival cult groups.
