Another female undergraduate has been raped and killed in Oyo State, the third time in weeks in the state.
Grace Oshiagwu, a student of Business Administration at the Oke Ogun Polytechnic in Saki area of the state, was raped and murdered at a church around the Idi-Ori area of Shasha, which is under Akinyẹle Local Government Area in Ibadan, the state capital, on Saturday, according to Sahara Reporters.
A source told the online news medium that the late student may have been killed for ritual purposes.
“Yes, it was another rape case close to my street and the lady was murdered at the same Akinyẹle LGA where Barakat was killed a few weeks ago.
“But one thing that surprised me the most is that the lady’s hair was shaved and taken away too. I feel it was for ritual purposes,” the source told the news website.
The source added that her corpse had been deposited at Adeoyo State Hospital in Ibadan for autopsy.
The Oyo State Police Command said an investigation had commenced into the case.
The incident occurred 10 days after Shomuyiwa Azeezat, who was seven months pregnant and a postgraduate student of the University of Ibadan, was raped and killed in Akinyele LGA.
It also came after 18-year-old Barakat Bello was raped and killed in the same LGA.
