The suspects were said to have tried to snatch the Toyota Corolla vehicle from the driver while on their way to their supposed destination but the resistance put up by the 25-year-old final year student of Education and Political Science, ignited the rage of the suspects who stabbed him multiple times and also tied a rope around his neck.
