A 400 Level student of Osun State University, (UNIOSUN) Osogbo, Adebisi Rofiat Damilola who has been missing in the last couple of days has been found dead as police detectives are making frantic efforts to unravel circumstances surrounding her death.
Daily Trust learnt that Rofiat who was studying Science Education at the Ipetu-Ijesa campus of UNIOSUN left Ipetu on Thursday to attend a programme of NASFAT society at Ikoyi near Ikire and that her whereabouts was unknown since then.
A source who spoke with our correspondent on a condition of anonymity said “Rofiat left Ipetu-Ijesha on Thursday. She was supposed to be in a NASFAT programme at Ikoyi, not far from Ikire. We have been looking for her since Thursday. We just received a phone call that Rofiat’s body was found somewhere around Iragbiji”.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Fimihan Adeoye confirmed the incident and assured that the perpetrators would be apprehended and brought to book.
He said the remains of the deceased student have been deposited in the mortuary for autopsy and that her family has been notified.
Daily Trust gathered that the father of the deceased student died recently and that the family was still mourning when Rofiat was also sent to her early grave by unknown killers.
Mourners have been thronging the residence of the deceased at Ilesa Garage in Osogbo to console Rofiat’s mother.
Some students, especially the friends of late Rofiat and some staff of UNIOSUN have visited the house to sympathise with the family.
Daily Trust learnt that the management of the university has also sent a delegation to visit the family of the deceased student and commiserated with the parent.
Meanwhile, the two final year students of the same university, Samuel Eke and Akinduro Robert who were declared missing since September 5 have not been found. The CP said the matter is still under investigation.
Police arrested and arraigned a student of the university, Adedamola Olagoke, before a Magistrate Court sitting in Osogbo for kidnapping saying he was the person that communicated last with the missing students before their disappearance.
