The Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has promised a reward of one million Naira to anyone with useful information that can lead to the arrest of the cultists responsible for the murder of two students of EKSU.
Fayose said, “Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the cultists responsible for the murder of two students of EKSU will be given N1m.” Fayose wrote on Twitter.
He made the statement days after the headless body of Ayodele Temilade, an undergraduate of the Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, was on Sunday night found at the university’s gate where it was allegedly dumped by cultists.
The discovery of the body came barely five days after the killing of Ojo Segun, a third-year student at the same institution by suspected cultists created panic within the university community.
Some students of the institution, who spoke under anonymity, said the corpse of Ayodele Temilade was discovered at the gate of the school on Sunday night around 10 pm. They, however, explained that they did not know how the corpse got there.
A close look at the corpse posted on the social media revealed that the head of the victim was severed and the body inflicted with several machete cuts. The Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti State command, Mr. Alberto Adeyemi, told newsmen that the command received the report of the incident yesterday morning and had since removed the corpse to the mortuary.
He said: “His name was given as Ayodele Temilade but we don’t know his course or level for now. We are treating the issue as a murder case until the investigation is completed.”
Also, the Acting Director, Information and Corporate Affairs of the institution, Ajibade Olubunmi, who also confirmed the incident, added that Temilade’s corpse was found at the gate of his residence contrary to earlier claims that the corpse was dumped at the school’s gate.
