The students allege that a university paramilitary organization, known as the Cadet Corps, beat Mr. Oluwamuyiwa, a 400 level final year student of the Psychology Department, to death on campus.
On Monday, several students close to the deceased informed SaharaReporters that a leader of the Cadet Corps, Adeola Adedoyin (AKA “Iron Body”), commaned the squad responsible for torturing Mr. Oluwamuyiwa to death.
“Oluwamuyiwa was already sleeping when Adedoyin, known as ‘Iron body’, led his gang of Cadet Corps members into Shanghai Villa [the residency of Oluwamuyia] and asked for the room of Oluwamuyiwa. A resident pointed out the room to Adedoyin,“The next thing we heard was the Cadet Corps banging on the late Oluwamuyiwa’s door while they shouted on top of their voice that the young man should open his door or they would force it open,The cadet gang forcefully gained entrance into the room and bounced on top of the victim whom they beat angrily until blood started gushing out from his body,”
Since knowledge of his involvement in the murder of Mr. Oluwamuyiwa became public, Mr. Adedoyin has been on the run.
SaharaReporters gathered that shortly after the gang left, Mr. Oluwamuyiwa was found in a comatose state and gasping for breath inside his room. He was immediately rushed to the Iwaro General Hospital by his co-residents.
“From Iwaro General Hospital, his condition worsened and the doctor on duty advised that he should be transferred to another hospital in Ondo town. He was subsequently rushed to the University Teaching Hospital in Ibadan. A surgery was carried out, but he succumbed to his wounds,” a student source said.
The Department of State Security Services (DSS) informed SaharaReporters that they began an investigation into the murder. University management declared the supposed perpetrator, Mr. Adedoyin, as wanted for his involvement in the incident.
