TASUED: Suspected Cultists Kill Final Year Student On Birthday

Suspected cultists have allegedly killed Ahmed Fabiyi, a final-year student of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijagun, Ogun State.

Fabiyi who celebrated his birth anniversary on Wednesday while preparing to write his final papers was deceived and led out of the exam hall by suspected cultists.

The suspected cultists were said to have disguised as friends, who had come to surprise him on his birth anniversary, but it was a decoy to kill him.

It is not clear which of the cult groups committed the heinous crime, but the deceased student of History and Diplomatic Studies Department was killed around the institution’s technical workshop area.

Confirming the incident, the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Ayotunde Odubela, said the gang’s true intentions became apparent only when they began dragging Fabiyi towards a bushy area near the university’s technical workshop where they viciously beat and macheted him.

“The student was actually carried out of the examination hall as if they were celebrating because Wednesday was actually his birthday

“Everyone thought they were celebrating his birthday until he was dragged to the bushy part of the institution’s technical workshop and attacked.

“That was when the school security unit was contacted but by the time they would get to the place of the incident, he has been actually beaten and macheted. So, when they saw the security men coming, they dropped him and left.

“When the security men picked him up, they took him to the school medical center where he was immediately attended to and referred to the General Hospital Ijebu Ode, immediately.

“The General Hospital also referred him to Babcock University Teaching Hospital; unfortunately, he gave up the ghost before he got to the hospital,” she said.

The school said it had reported the incident to the police. On its part, the Ogun State Police Command said the investigation is underway and has launched raids on suspected cultists’ hideouts in the area.
