A final year student who was also the Vice President of the Niger Delta Students Union Government (NDISUG), was killed by a stray bullet in Delta State on his way from church.
It was noted in the reports that, the late Nzete Ogochukwu Patrick, was a Student of Electrical Engineering in University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State. He was the former Chief Whip of the National Association of Delta State Students.
Patrick was returning from Church when a communal clash began in Ogume, Delta State. It resulted into exchange of Gunshots which later caused his death.
As a result, students poured into the streets of the State capital, demanding that those behind the dastard act should be brought to book.
The protest was led by leaders of various students’ bodies including the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS) and National Association of Delta State Students (NADESSTU).
Clad in black attires and armed with placards of various inscriptions, the protesting students said they were further peeved by unconfirmed reports in some quarters that the deceased student was being labelled with a criminal tag and that he was one of those fomenting trouble in the community.
