Vanguard reports that Ewarawon was allegedly murdered by a suspected para-military organization in the university. It was reported that
Ewarawon, who lived in a private hostel outside the school campus, Shanghai Hostel, was attacked in his room by the armed gang of seven boys who were disguised as student cadet officers.
The family of the deceased has filed a petition to the Ondo state commissioner of police, Mike Ogbodu. In the petition filed, the counsel to the family, Olufemi Meduoye, said: “The armed assailants broke into Olumuyiwa’s room while he was asleep and attacked him, thereafter, brutalized, bruised and inflicted on him fatal injuries from which he fell into coma. The gang dumped Olumuyiwa’s body at the General Hospital, Iwarooka Akoko before good samaritans brought the incident to the attention of the family three days later.”
When the comatose body of Olumuyiwa was taken from the hospital to Trauma Centre Ondo, they were instantly referred to Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile-Ife, where he later died. The late Ewarawon was the only son of his aged mother.
The family of the deceased is insisting that the culprits who allegedly killed their son should be made to face the wrath of the law. The school authorities have forbidden all para-military organizations in the institution while two of the suspects were arrested yesterday.
The police spokesman, Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident said that the suspect is on the run and that detectives are on his trail. He, however, said that the suspect would soon be apprehended and made to face the law.
