Another student of a Nigerian institution has been reportedly raped and murdered in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
The police confirmed the murder but denied that the victim was raped.
The latest victim was identified as Azeezat Shomuyiwa, said to be a postgraduate student of the University of Ibadan.
She was attacked on Thursday at her house in Aba Ijefun, Akinyele Local Government Area of Ibadan.
An anonymous source from this area told is that a stone used to kill Ms Shomuyiwa was found beside her bed with blood covering her body.
“The girl was raped and killed. As of this morning, police came to the place to arrest some people they suspected,” residents said asking not to be named.
Another anonymous source lamented “A bad incident happened in my community today. The lady was raped and Nigerian police force came to the place.”
Meanwhile Oyo State police spokesperson said the victim was murdered but there was no evidence of rape.
“Truly, the matter happened but it was not rape. She was attacked with stone on her head and left to die”, he said. “The police commiserated with the family”
“The commissioner already asked the deputy commissioner of police to take up the matter for proper investigation.”
If she was really raped, this will make it, three rape cases in less than a month.
This happened in less than 48hrs after the last rape incident that happened in the same city of Ibadan.
