“It started as a mere argument between the two (the deceased and the killer) in the OVA [Old Vandals Association] bus on our way from Amrahia to campus (after attending the funeral of the late Vandal Lion).

"The argument became heated and the two had to be separated on several occasions by others. It went on and on. So, when we got to Atomic Junction, the driver was advised to stop and the two were thrown out of the bus. Others joined them.

“When they got to the Hall, they had not stopped. It was at this time that the killer allegedly grabbed the knife of the khebab seller and cut the victim several times with it. The victim bled profusely and was rushed to the Legon Hospital by the killer and some Vandals".
