One of the suspects involved in the gruesome murder of Toyin Bamidele, a 23-year-old female student of the Federal Polytechnic, Offa over cult-related activities has been arrested by the Kwara State Police Command.
The deceased, an HND 1 student of Food and Technology, was allegedly hacked to death by suspected cultists at her rented apartment around Dapson Extension Area, Offa.
She was found in a pool of blood when operatives got to the scene.
A yet-to-be-identified male student said to be the leader of a cult group was also allegedly macheted to death at the school gate last week over a “sign out” ceremony.
The Commissioner of Police, Victor Olaiya, on Sunday, confirmed the arrest of “a suspect in relation to the attack.”
He said, “Preliminary investigation at the scene revealed some marks of violence on the face and neck regions of the body.
“The body was removed to Wale Clinic and Hospital, where the student was certified dead by a medical practitioner. Her corpse has been deposited in the mortuary for autopsy.”
He advised the public to be conscious and vigilant during this period, adding that the command would not relent in ensuring the safety and security of citizens and their property.
He reiterated the determination of the command to get to the root of this crime.
