A picture of the body, posted on the social media was that of dismembered remains with the head severed and the body inflicted with several machete cuts.

Confirming the tragedy, the public relations officer of the Ekiti Police Command, Mr Alberto Adeyemi, said the command received the report of the development Monday morning and had since removed the corpse to the mortuary.

“His name was given as Ayodele Temilade but we don’t know his course or level for now. We are treating the issue as a murder case until the investigation is completed.” Student Hacked

Meanwhile, the Acting Director, Information and Corporate Affairs Department of EKSU, Ajibade Olubunmi, who also confirmed the development, added that Temilade’s corpse was found at the gate of his residence contrary to the earlier claim that the corpse was dumped at the school’s gate.

Meanwhile, a statement by Ajibade on Monday said the management of EKSU has declared war against cult activities in the school.

Tagged “Operation no cultism in EKSU,” the statement said the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Samuel Bandele, made the declaration after an emergency security meeting in response to the noticeable upsurge in cultists’ activities in the institution.

“All suspected cultists will be rounded up, investigated and dealt with according to the University’s rules and as well prosecuted”, he said.
