Students’ union leaders and Students of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) have expressed outrage over the killing of Blessing Olajide, a 300-level student of the agricultural science department.
Many students of the school have demanded justice for the deceased, trending the hashtag #JusticeForBlessing on Thursday night.
Waliu Taofeek, the President of the student union, while reacting to the unfortunate incident, urged the students to keep calm, promising that the union will take necessary action.
The spokesperson of the police in Kwara State, Ajayi Okasanmi, earlier said Ms Olajide, who they believe was first raped, was killed at her residence at Tanke area of Ilorin.
Mr Okasanmi in his statement on Thursday noted that the deceased “was lying dead on the floor when neighbours entered her apartment and saw her with her two hands tied to the back, and mouth gagged.”
She was naked and had bruises on her private part, the police said.
“Also a note, said to have been written on a piece of paper was placed on her chest containing a message, ‘Unilorin doesn’t forgive’.
“The people later informed the police at F’ Division Police Station, who discovered the dead body, snapped the picture, and took the corpse to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) for autopsy,” the police said.
