Efforts ongoing to arrest killers of Ondo varsity students — Police
Twenty-four hours after a student of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, Temitayo Ayodeji, was killed, the Ondo State Police Command said it had not arrested anyone yet over the incident.
The deceased was allegedly stabbed to death on Thursday, by some people suspected to be cultists who were indigenous members of the community.
It took the timely intervention of men of the command before the students of the institution could be calmed down.
However, the family house of the alleged killer was razed down.
The Police Public Relations Officer of the command, Mrs Fumilayo Odunlami disclosed that no arrest has so far been made in connection with the incident.
“Efforts were ongoing to arrest the suspects,” the PPRO stated.
Meanwhile, a source, who preferred not to be mentioned, revealed that the deceased, who was a final year student of the Physics Electronics Department of the university, was killed over an argument over N1,000.
He was said to have been stabbed to death at his off-campus residence, Ebenco Area of Akungba Akoko in Akoko South West Local Government Area of the state.
The source said, “He (deceased) was stabbed by the cultists after he refused to pay them N1000 they demanded from him but died on his way to the hospital.”
In a reaction, the Students’ Union President of the institution, Ogunsanmi Kolade, said efforts were going on to arrest the suspects.
Kolade said, “The perpetrators would be made to face justice.”
