Monday, June 24, 2024
 –Police have arrested a 300-level student of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) in Ekiti State, Rachael Olufogbe, for allegedly slashing a fellow student with a razor blade during a heated argument. 

It was gathered that the incident happened in a private hostel located in Oye Egbo, a community outside the school premises on Saturday, June 22, 2024.

According to Punch, Olufogbe and the victim disagreed with the right of the drying line in the hostel.

The victim moved Olufogbe’s clothes to create space on the clothesline before spreading her clothes.

However, Olufogbe protested this act, leading to an exchange of words between the two.

The situation escalated quickly as Olufogbe was said to have picked a blade to inflict bodily injuries on the victim.

The school’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof Sunday Fashina, confirmed the incident to the publication on Saturday.

“The incident happened outside the campus in a private hostel. Nobody dares that within the campus because they know the rules and regulations. If anyone tries that, it will catch up with them. The police are already handling it,” he stated. 

“The suspect is in police custody, and once it involves the police, we cannot interfere. When they are done with their investigations, they will write to the Vice-Chancellor to give their report, then we conduct our investigation. So, let’s wait for the outcome of the police investigation."
