The government, in a statement issued on Sunday and signed by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information and Strategy, Waheed Adesina, condemned the dastardly act, while disclosing that the police had been instructed to invite all concerned, including the Baale of Imaweje village where the incident took place and unravel the immediate and remote causes of the death of the student.

The state government strongly condemned the killing of the student, saying it was one death too many. It said no one had the right to take laws into their own hands, assuring that every action necessary would be taken to punish all those involved.

The government appealed to the students of the institution to remain peaceful and law abiding, while waiting for the outcome of the police investigation.

It assured that such incidents would not be allowed to happen again anywhere in the state.

Some students of the university allegedly set four houses, including that of the Baale of Imaweje, the host community, ablaze last week, following the death of the student, whose name has not been disclosed.

The students’ action was said to be in retaliation over the death of their fellow student, who was allegedly beaten to death on the allegation that he was a cultist.
