A final year Psychology student of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Olumuyiwa Ewarawon, has been allegedly murdered by a suspected para-military organization operating in the University. 2 of the suspects have reportedly been arrested.
It was gathered that the deceased, who was the only son of his mom, lived in a private hostel outside the school campus and was reportedly attacked by suspected cadet officers.
The deceased family is asking for justice for their son.
The family in a petition to the Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Mike Ogbodu, filed by the counsel to the deceased’s father, Chief Goodluck Ibitoye Ewarawon, alleged that Olumuyiwa was attacked in his room at Shanghai Hostel in Akungba by the armed gang of seven men who claimed that they were student cadet officers.
“The armed assailants broke into Olumuyiwa’s room while he was asleep and attacked him, thereafter, brutalized, bruised and inflicted on him fatal injuries from which he fell into coma.
“The gang dumped Olumuyiwa’s body at the General Hospital, Iwarooka Akoko before good samaritans brought the incident to the attention of the family three days later.”
According to the family, Olumuyiwa was in a coma when he was taken from the hospital to Trauma Centre Ondo which instantly referred the case to Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile-Ife.
The family said he never came out of coma and died later in the hospital.
They urged the Commissioner of Police to use his good office to ensure a full investigation of the murder of Olumuyiwa by the suspected Cadet Officers.
