A security guard working for the Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH), Ikorodu, Cletus Wilson, has allegedly murdered one of his colleagues, John Okoro.

Premium Times reports that the Okoro was killed and matcheted by Wilson on Friday, May 24, within the school's premises.

One of the witnesses who pledged anonymity said the suspect had confessed to the police that he hit Okoro on his neck with a heavy metal before he later killed him with cutlass.

The witness said: “Very early on Friday we heard the noise on campus that another person had been killed by one of the security guards. It was after we moved near the scene of the incident that we saw how gory the whole thing is."

Noting that Okoro before his death was a guard at the Chemical Engineering Department while Wilson works at the Computer Engineering Department, the witness said the suspect cut the victims hands after killing him.

"He was about to escape with the body parts before he was caught in the bush by other security men. He was handcuffed by the police and his photograph taken as he sat beside the corpse on the open field where the corpse was deposited," the witness said.

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson for LASPOTECH, Olanrewaju Kuye, said both the victim and the alleged culprit are personnel of an outsourced security agency hired by the school's management.

"The report of the murder case is true. The two of them work for Kramoo Securities, a private company, which supplied them to the school. We have since reported the incident to both the police and the security company.

“We are aware it is for ritual purpose but the police would unravel the details in their investigations," Kuye said.
