Homicide from stabbing is the commonest cause of death all over the world and unwholesome activities such as cultism usually result into this in university environment. We present a case of 23 year old undergraduate who was murdered during election within the school premises. He sustained a deep laceration into the chest cavity with injuring to the main vessels resulting in massive internal bleeding, hypovolemic shock and irreversible organ failure and death. All hands must be on deck to prevent unnecessary death on our campuses.
