A 300-level student at Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, Bukola Odeyemi, has allegedly stabbed her 22-year-old lover and fellow student, John Iju which resulted to his death.
Sources said the incident happened at Iworoko-Ekiti at about 10pm on Monday at one of the private hostels being used by off-campus students at the university.
The 20-year-old student of the Department of Biology Education allegedly had a rift with her boyfriend over his inability to give her N2,500 to make her hair.
According to the sources, the duo had a loud argument over the matter before Ms Odeyemi picked up a knife and allegedly stabbed Iju in the chest.
“During the fight, the deceased was said to have had an upper hand and the lady saw a sharp knife on the tray and immediately picked it and stabbed the boy in the chest”.
“The boy, who did not survive the deep cut, fell on the floor, with blood oozing out.
The deceased’s friends were said to have rushed to the Police station at Iworoko to report the case.
It was the boy’s shout for help that attracted them to the scene.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Ekiti State, DSP Caleb Ikechukwu, said, “It is confirmed. The suspect has been arrested.” He also stated the suspect would be charged to court in conclusion of the investigation.
