Authorities at the Lagos State University, Ojo, have called for caution from the students following the reported murder of a final-year-female student, Favour Daley-Oladele.

The students were urged to remain calm to allow the law enforcement agents to conclude their investigation into the matter.

The university’s spokesman, Mr. Ademola Adekoya, said on Sunday in Lagos that the LASU Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, made the appeal.

Adekoya said that Fagbohun, on behalf of the university’s management, assured the university community that the institution would continue to monitor the case and ensure that justice is done.

Adekoya quoted the vice chancellor as saying, “I received with great shock the news of the death of Miss Favour Daley-Oladele, a final year student of the Department of Theatre Arts at the university.

“Based on the Police preliminary investigation, the deceased was murdered on December 8 at Ikoyi-Ile in Ikire, Osun State, by some individuals who had since been arrested.

“The university’s management hereby commiserates with the parents and other family members of the deceased, the staff and students of the department, and the entire university community.

“The Police have assured us that justice will be served in this case as the perpetrators of this heinous crime will be charged to court immediately investigation is concluded.”

Adekoya said LASU’s management reiterated its commitment to ensuring the security of lives and property on all its campuses.
