A female student of the Lagos State University (LASU) has been killed in what is currently believed to be a hit-and-run case.


Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson of the Lagos police, confirmed the student’s death to TheCable Lifestyle on Wednesday.

He identified the victim as Togbola Elizabeth, a 200-level undergraduate of Law at LASU.

Hundeyin said the driver is yet to be identified and apprehended.


He also said the deceased’s lifeless body was found on Tuesday morning around Ipaye Busstop in Ojo LGA while the corpse has been deposited at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).

“The girl’s name is Togbola Elizabeth, a 200-level student of LASU. On the 30th of May at 9 pm, she left home. It was yesterday, on the 31st, that she was discovered. People saw her lifeless body,” Hundeyin said.

“Her sister, Hannah Togbola, came to the police station to report. This happened at Ipaye Busstop (in Ojo). We’re yet to make any arrest and apprehend those who did it. We’re expecting potential witnesses to identify the car.”


In a similar case involving LASU, another student is being reported to have been attacked by suspected robbers.

The reports identified the victim as Juliana Solomon, a 100-level student of Banking and Finance.

It was gathered that she was at Igbo-Elerin in Ojo when robbers armed with machetes struck her on the head.

The incident happened on Monday while the victim was on her way to school.


Solomon was taken to the Federal Railway Hospital, Oyingbo for treatment.

When asked to comment on the incident, Hundeyin said the case had yet to be reported to the Lagos police.

“I heard, but we don’t have any record. The case is yet to be reported. A few weeks ago, a boy was struck by his teacher and later died. It was all over the news but it was only two days ago that the parents reported,” he said.

“They prefer to first tell the media and journalists before coming to the police. I don’t know if that’s what is happening here. But this second case is y to be reported at any station. I’ve called all the DPOs in that area.”


When TheCable Lifestyle contacted Ademola Adekoya, spokesperson of LASU, he said details of the case are still sketchy.

“We’re yet to unravel the facts and whether the victim is a student or not. Information is still sketchy. The student body has taken it upon itself to ensure that whatever information is flying on social media is authentic,” he said.

“As of yesterday, our dean of student affairs was trying to identify the victim. We will do a statement on this.”
