The 27-year old master’s degree student, Sàer Boye went to the restaurant early on Wednesday evening after jogging when he encountered two students in a heated altercation.
According to several eyewitness accounts, one of the protagonists lashed out at him, hitting him violently as he tried to separate them. Seeing Sàer’s declining state as a result of the grievous blows, his friends who were milling outside the restaurant hurried to his aid and evacuated him to UCAD medical services where he was later pronounced dead.
Meanwhile, peers of the popular student are demanding an investigation over his death. Boye hailed from Saint Louis, 217km north of Dakar. His assailant is currently on the run and the Senegalese police are on the lookout for him. APA]]>
