Julia, a final year student of the department of Mathematics and Statistics, was murdered in her room in a private hostel off Polytechnic Road in Ogwashi-Uku, Delta State, on Tuesday, reports Saharareporters.
According to one of her co-students in the hostel, the lover had spent the previous night in the room of the deceased, and had stolen her ATM card.
“After her cultist lover had left the following day she received a debit alert of a N100,000. She received another debit alert of N45,000. Before leaving for the bank, she complained to us [about] the strange development.
On her return from the bank where she went to complain, she told us the bank assured her that the culprit could only be known and arrested after going through their CCDC camera. She was told to go home and report back the next day, before meeting her untimely death,” the co-student said.
The source speculated that unknown to anyone in the hostel, the suspect sneaked into Julia’s room and murdered her with a battle axe, locked the corpse inside the room and ran away with her keys.
“Not until the next morning when everybody became apprehensive of her whereabouts and we had to break her door where we saw her lifeless body with blood stains everywhere in the room and the matter was reported to the Ogwashi-Uku Police Station,” the source narrated
A source at the Ogwashi-Uku station confirmed the story, adding that the police and the bank are currently working around the clock to arrest the suspect, who is on the run.
