Ondo State Police Command has launched an investigation into the death of a 300-level female student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo state, identified as Ifeoluwa Adekunle, who was found dead in her off-campus apartment.
State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Funmi Odunlami, while confirming the unfortunate incident, disclosed that men of the state detectives had visited the scene of the incident and an investigation has begun into the case.
Reports revealed that the student from the Department of Economics was found in a pool of blood at the weekend, with some of the students pointing out that the lady was attacked by her assailants while she was alone in her room.
One of the students, who craved anonymity, stated that the girl was gruesomely killed, adding that this has caused apprehension within the students’ community.
Speaking further, he noted that the incident has been reported to the police, explaining that “we found her in the pool of her blood in her room.
“She was stabbed to death by yet-to-be-identified persons who came visiting. We know this is not a cult-related issue as some people are suggesting.
“We have reported the case to the police but seems they are slow in responding to our demands in identifying and tracking those behind this dastardly act.
“We are imploring the Ondo State Government to please look into the matter and ensure that the deceased gets justice.”
Reacting, the police spokesperson ruled out cult-related activities in the case, adding that the corpse of the deceased had been moved to the hospital’s morgue.
“She was killed but her corpse had been moved to the hospital’s morgue and we have begun our investigation on the case.
“We are not sure if it’s a cult-related activity because she was murdered in her room situated off the campus but an investigation is going to unravel the cause,” she said.
