The death of a 300-level student of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun has been condemned by the Ogun Government.
The deceased, whose name had yet to be ascertained, was reportedly beaten to death for allegedly belonging to a cult group.
In a statement issued on yesterday in Abeokuta by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information and Strategy, Mr Waheed Adesina, and made available to newsmen, the government described the killing as a dastardly act.
Adesina promised the management and students of the university that those behind the killing would not go unpunished.
He disclosed that the police had been instructed to invite all those concerned, including the Baale of Imaweje Village, the institution’s host community where the incident happened, to unravel the cause of the death.
“No one has the right to take the law into their own hand.
“Every action necessary would be taken to punish all those involved.
“The government appealed to the students of the institution to remain peaceful and law-abiding while waiting for the outcome of the police investigation.
“Such an incident will not be allowed to happen again anywhere in the state,” the statement added.
