He, however, said the incident has been reported to the police, explaining that “we found her in the pool of her blood in her room.
“She was stabbed to death by yet-to-be-identified persons who came visiting. We know this is not a cult-related issue as some people are suggesting.
“We have reported the case to the police but seems they are slow in responding to our demands in identifying and tracking those behind this dastardly act.
“We are imploring the Ondo State Government to please look into the matter and ensure that the deceased gets justice.”
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Funmi Odunlami, who confirmed the death of the 300-level students, said mem of the state detectives had visited the scene of the incident and an investigation has begun into the case.
The police spokesperson who ruled out cult-related activities in the case said that the corpse of the deceased had been moved to the hospital’s morgue.
“She was killed but her corpse had been moved to the hospital’s morgue and we have begun our investigation on the case.
“We are not sure if it’s a cult-related activity because she was murdered in her room situated off the campus but an investigation is going to unravel the cause,” she said
