#JusticeForBlessing: UNILORIN Student, Olajide Blessing has been rαped to death in her apartment.
News Online reports that a 300-level Student of Agricultural Science Department in the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Olajide Omowumi Blessing, has been allegedly raped to death in her residence along Tanke area in Ilorin, Kwara State.
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Okasanmi Ajayi, who confirmed the incident, said the deceased was staying with her elder sister at Tanke area before her death.
“The deceased stayed with her elder sister who came back from work at about 6:00pm on Tuesday, saying that she had tried severally to reach her on phone but couldn’t as the phone kept ringing.
“On her arrival, she met the door of her apartment locked and couldn’t gain entry despite repeated knocks. She then called some neighbours who helped to break down the door.
“They all met the deceased lying dead on the floor when they entered with her two hands tied to the back, and her mouth gagged. She was met naked and bruises noticed on her private parts.
“A note said to have been written on a piece of paper was placed on her chest containing a message, “Unilorin doesn’t forgive”.
“The people later informed the police at F’ Division Police Station, who discovered the dead body, snapped the picture, and took the corpse to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) for autopsy,” the PPRO said.
Okasanmi said that the state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Bagega, has directed immediate investigation and arrest of the attackers, adding, “that’s what we are doing right now.”
Meanwhile, News Online reports that Nigerians have taken to social media to seek justice for the Unilorin student who hails from Oke-Opin, Ekiti local government area of Kwara state.
I don’t understand the silence, one of my Faculty mate at sch (Unilorin) was raped & Mudered yet the entire community is silent, no awareness or publicity whatsoever. This looks so much like arranged raped and assassination
We have to get justice for her! #justiceforblessing
