TASUED student dragged out of exam, lynched in cult attack

Thursday, July 4, 2024
 -A final-year student at the Tai Solarin University (TASUED) in Ijebu Ode, Ogun state, Ola Fabiyi, has been killed after suspected cultists stormed his examination hall, dragged him out and fatally beat him up on Wednesday, July 3.

The Cable reports that commotion broke out at the campus of the state-owned tertiary institution on Wednesday when men dressed in white shirts invaded the institution’s ETF exam hall during a session at noon. The armed men were said to have dragged out Fabiyi, the general governor for TASUED’s College of Humanities, beat him with stones, stabbed him, and left him unconscious in the bush.

A video surfaced showing colleagues of the now-deceased final-year student watching in shock from a distance as the assault unfolded. In the video, men numbering up to 15 were seen dragging the victim by the leg and kicking him as he writhed in pain. Student witnesses say campus security operatives only arrived at the crime scene after the cult members had already fled. It was gathered that Fabiyi was subsequently rushed to the hospital where he would later be confirmed dead.

 Babatunde Odugbesan, TASUED’s deputy registrar, has announced the suspension the institution’s ongoing second-semester exams.

“Students are assured of their safety and are advised to remain calm while investigations ongoing get to the root of the cultist attack,” he said

The state police command is yet to comment on this sad development.
