A 300 level Economics student of the Lagos
State University (LASU) identified as Miss
Rita Onwuli, has been murdered by unknown
persons in Lagos.
Her lifeless body was found near a church at the
Odo Olowu Street, Ijeshatedo, on the Apapa –
Oshodi Expressway, Lagos.
Lifeless body of Rita
According to report, Rita had left home on Tuesday
and for three days, she was nowhere to be found.
Her friends, colleagues and family members
searched for her to no avail and on Thursday, they
got the shock of their life as they were called to
come and see dead body.
Rita’s bag which had some of her personal
belongings and her phone was found by her side
and that’s how they were able to reach out to some
people who disclosed her identity, and promised to
come to the scene immediately.
A team of policemen from the Ijeshatedo Police
Station which had responded to the call by
members of the Neighbourhood Watch, had a
hectic time dispersing passers-by from taking snap
shots of the body and they
also declined comment about the incident.
A member of the Neighbourhood Watch, Mr
Badmus Azeez Adeniyi, who spoke on the incident
said, ” There is no clue yet on what could have
happened to the lady. But it is like a case of murder
that took place somewhere.
Apparently, the perpetrators had waited for the
cover of the dark to drop her corpse here. Nobody
can say exactly when they did this but it surely
cannot be anything around 10pm and 11pm last
night because we still passed through this area
when we were on surveillance watch last night.”
When contacted, the LASU Public Relations Officer,
Mr Sutton Kayode, said he was going to check if
Onwuli was a student of the institution.
