OAU Hands Over Murder Suspects To Police


The management of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, has handed over suspects accused for the murder of a final-year student, Okoli Aishe, of the institution.

The Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr Abiodun Olarewaju, stated this on Wednesday in Ile-Ife.

He said the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Simeon Bamire, and the entire community were saddened over the murder of the student.

“Nobody knows that students can go to that level of indiscipline to cost the life of their mate,” he said.

Freedom online reported that the  spokesman stressed that the suspects should have adhered to constitutional provisions and the university’s regulations rather than taking the law into their hands.

Olarewaju said the University had set up a committee to unravel the circumstances leading to the gruesome murder of the student.

Aishe, a final-year student of Civil Engineering Department, was clobbered to death in a mob action after some students accused him of cell phone theft.
