Police commence probe into killing of Fedpoffa student

A female student of the Federal Polytechnic, Offa in Kwara State, Miss Toyin Bamidele, has been allegedly hacked to death by yet-to-be-identified people.

The Higher National Diploma student of Food Technology was said to have been murdered in her rented apartment outside the campus on Thursday.

The acting Head of the Public Relations Unit of the institution, Mrs Folake Oyinloye, told Sunday Special on Friday, that the management of the polytechnic has commenced an investigation into the bizarre murder in conjunction with security agencies.

“The management condemns this inhumane act in strong terms as it is strange in the polytechnic community. While the circumstances behind the incident remain unknown, investigations are currently ongoing to reveal the identity of the evil occurrence by the appropriate security agencies and, as a matter of urgency, to fish out the culprits.

“Her demise is an irreparable loss to the entire management and staff of the polytechnic. The management somberly condoles with her family, friends, and the Department of Food Technology for the great loss and urges anyone who has useful information on this occurrence to report to security agents,” Oyinloye said.

All efforts to contact the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Olaiya Mobolaji, proved abortive as he could not be reached.
