According to the school officials, yesterday Sunday, the students were out for sports and the form five student, Ojong realized the deceased student was putting on his short, when he asked the lower sixth student to give it back, he refused claiming he will only give it back when deemed necessary.
This led to a fight which was later separated by the dormitory captain. The deceased student later realized that what he did was not correct and decided to walk up to the form five student to ask for forgiveness.
The Form five student thought he was still coming to attack him and since they were just from the refectory and still with their cutleries, he took his knife and stabbed Bryan Ebenson on the stomach.
Bryan Ebenson was rushed to the Mount Marie Hospital in Buea, chief town of the Southwest Region where he gave up the ghost.
Ojong, the assailant and the deceased, Bryan Ebenson it is alleged are both orphans and hail from Kumba in the Meme division of the Southwest Region.
Investigations have been opened into the matter by local law enforcement officers while the alleged assailant is currently under police custody.
According to the State radio, people were very surprised; some think it is an isolated case while others think it is a pointer to the fact that there is something wrong with the discipline of the school.
However, Father Peter Nuck, principal of the school made it clear that discipline was tight.
