One suspect has been detained by the Kwara Police Command in connection with the horrific death of 23-year-old Toyin Bamidele, a female student at the Federal Polytechnic in Offa who was involved in cult-related activities.
At her leased accommodation near Dapson Extension Area, Offa, the deceased, an HND 1 student studying food and technology, was allegedly hacked to death by suspected cultists. When police arrived at the murder site, they saw Bamidele lying in a pool of blood.
During their final exam inside the school, an unidentified male student who was allegedly the leader of a cult was allegedly macheted to death at the school door.
Victor Olaiya, the state’s commissioner of police, announced on Sunday that a suspect connected to the former student’s murder had been taken into custody.
He said, “Preliminary investigation at the scene revealed some marks of violence on the face and neck regions of the body.
“The body was removed to Wale Clinic and Hospital, where the student was certified dead by a medical practitioner. Her corpse has been deposited in the mortuary for autopsy,” the CP said in a statement.”
In addition to warning that the command would not back down in guaranteeing the safety and security of people and their property, he urged the public to exercise awareness and vigilance during this time.
The commissioner restated the directive’s resolve to identify the source of this crime.
