A 300 level student of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) identified as Olajide Omowumi Blessing has been found dead following an attack by suspected rapists.


Blessing, a student of the Department of Agriculture, was said to have been raped before she was murdered at her home along the Tanke axis of Ilorin, Kwara state on Tuesday.

Ajayi Okasanmi, the state police command spokesperson, who confirmed the death of the female student, added that the command has launched a manhunt on the perpetrators.

According to him, the deceased was staying with her elder sister before her death.


“The elder sister came back from work at about 06:00pm on Tuesday, saying that she had tried severally to reach her on phone but couldn’t as the phone kept ringing,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

“She came back from work to meet the door of her apartment locked and couldn’t gain entry despite repeated knocks on the door. She then called some neighbours who helped to break open the door.

“They all met the deceased lying dead on the floor when they entered with her two hands tied to the back and her mouth gagged. She was met naked, bruises were noticed on her private part, her mouth was covered among others.


“Also, a note said to have been written on a piece of paper was placed on her chest containing a message, “Unilorin doesn’t forgive”.

“The people later informed the police at F’ Division Police Station, who discovered the dead body, snapped the picture, and took the corpse to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) for autopsy”.
