A 23-year-old student of History and International Studies at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Enugu State, Chiamaka Okeke, has been stabbed to death by robbers.

The incident happened at a Shawarma spot in Enugwu-Ukwu, Anambra State, where the deceased was said to be working temporarily as a result of the ongoing strike action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

It was gathered that the incident happened on July 10.

Narrating the incident to our correspondent on Monday, the brother of the deceased, who identified himself as Samuel Okeke, blamed the unfortunate death of his sister on ASUU strike and the Federal Government.

Okeke, also a student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra, said Chiamaka, who had been at home because of the ASUU strike, decided to get a job at a Shawarma spot, located around Ezi Alias Junction, Enugwu-Ukwu in Anambra.

He said the deceased decided to get the temporary job in her bid to lessen financial burdens on their parents as well as get engaged in activity rather than staying idle.

According to him, on the said date, at around 9:30pm, when the deceased and other employees were locking the shop, they were attacked by a gang of robbers who asked her to surrender her phone.
