According to an inside source from the college, the school bus was not involved in any accident as earlier on reported by some sources. What happened is that the student only identified as Adinan was found to be covered in blood stains when the students body returned from their friendly outing from Maracha and Koboko. The authorities have reason to believe that the deceased and some colleagues may have gotten into a brawl during the match in Koboko and he got injured but his friends tried to conceal it for fear of being penalized.
On reaching the school premises, colleagues of the deceased claimed that he was bruised on the metallic gate as the bus entered the school.
