Adibe Emenyonu in Benin City
The University of Benin (UNIBEN) has condemned the brutal and sad killing of a final year male student, known mostly as ‘ mayor’ on Monday.
The gruesome shooting occurred in one of Halls of Residence and was carried out by yet to be identified gunman in what appeared like a cult-related incident.
The late student who was said to be in the department of Public Administration, was shot at about 9pm on Monday.
While commiserating with the family and colleagues of the late student, the University in a statement through its Public Relations Officer (PRO), Dr. Benedicta Ehanire, said, “Management enjoins other students to be calm as the Police as well as other Security Agencies are working hard to fish out and arrest the culprit.
“Management is also working closely with the internal security units in ensuring that such dastardly incident does not occur again within the University’s premises.”
