Another student, identified as Azeezat Shomuyiwa, said to be a postgraduate student of the University of Ibadan, has been raped and murdered in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, PremiumTimes is reporting.

The police confirmed the murder but denied that the victim was raped.

Azeezat Shomuyiwa was attacked on Thursday at her house in Aba Ijefun, Akinyele Local Government Area of Ibadan. Residents of the area said that a stone used to kill Ms Shomuyiwa was found beside her bed with blood covering her body.
“The girl was raped and killed. As of this morning, police came to the place to arrest some people they suspected,” one resident said asking not to be named.

Another resident of the community, Aduwo Ayodele, said that “A bad incident happened in my community today. The lady was raped and Nigerian police force came to the place.”

However, the Oyo Stats police spokesperson, Olugbenga Fadeyi, said the victim was murdered but there was no evidence of rape.
“The commissioner already asked the deputy commissioner of police to take up the matter for proper investigation.”

Ms Shomuyiwa’s case happened barely 48 hours after 18-year-old Barakat Bello was gang-raped and murdered by unknown assailants in the same Ibadan. It also occurs days after a female undergraduate of the University of Benin, Vera Omozuwa, died in a hospital after she was allegedly raped and assaulted in a church premises in Benin, the Edo State capital.

Activists have been calling on Nigeria authorities to deal more effectively with rapists through the strict enforcement of existing laws and promulgation of tougher sanctions.
