Students of the Lagos State University (LASU) held candlelight procession on Monday, December 29, in honour of their colleague, Favour Sewanu Daley-Oladele, who was allegedly killed for ritual.
Legit.ng reports that the procession was mobilised by some students via #JusticeForFavour just as they seek justice for the slain colleague.
The students, who were dressed in black attires, converged on the Department of Theatre Arts and Music, from where they moved around the campus, singing a dirge while some were in tears.
The mourning students urged the university management, the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the police to ensure the perpetrators are punished accordingly.
The students condemned the act on Twitter while calling on the government to ensure a speedy trial of her alleged killers.
Favour was said to be 22 years old and a final year student of LASU before she was allegedly killed by her boyfriend, Adeeko Owolabi, and his mother for ritual.
Reacting to the development, the director-general of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Otunba Segun Runsewe, condemned the rise in reported activities of youths getting involved in ritual killings for money, The Nation reports.
Runsewe described the development as uncivilised and should be stopped by all well-meaning Nigerians from all walks of life.
He called on the government and the Nigerian citizens to partner in refocusing the minds of the youths from the ugly acts.
Runsewe pledged that the NCAC under his watch will engage in nationwide advocacy in 2020 to re-educate Nigerian youths to stop the quest to become rich or make money by all means.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the management of the Lagos State University issued an official statement on the alleged killing of a final-year-female student of the university.
The institution's management called on the students to be patient and allow the law enforcement agents to conclude their investigation into the matter.
