17 year old Adio Rahkib Yashau Turawah was shot dead during a rioting on the St. Paul's Senior High School when they clashed with the police after the latter attempted to control the rampaging students who were bent on lynching two of their own.

According to the angry students, two of their colleagues were caught in the act of homosexuality and were having anal sex. They said this abhorred them and wanted to teach the students a lesson. The situation got out of hand forcing a teacher to contact the police.
