ABUJA (NAN) ―  The police in Osun have arrested an operative of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) over the death of one Kamaldeen Muritala.

A statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by the Force spokesman, ACP Frank Mba, said  Muritala, a 32-year-old Islamic teacher, died of fatal stab wounds allegedly  inflicted on him by the NSCDC operative.

The statement said that the deceased  was a teacher  attached to Comprehensive High School, Ejigbo, Osun.

It said the incident happened on June 27, adding that preliminary investigation  by detectives revealed that Muritala died at Baptist Hospital, Ejigbo,  from complications of the “fatal stab wounds inflicted on his neck with a jack-knife.” 

The statement said  the incident occurred during an argument close to the entrance of an examination hall where a  National Examination Council (NECO) organised examination was taking place.

“Following the demise of the  Islamic teacher, students of the school attempted to raze down office structures belonging to the NSCDC as well as those of other government establishments in the area.

“But the timely intervention of the police prevented further breakdown of law and order,’’ the statement  said.

It also said the timely intervention of the police helped to rescue the 30-year-old suspect  as well as prevent other property from being burnt.

The statement, which warned  citizens  against resort to self help no matter the provocation, said justice would be served in the case.
