An unidentified student of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, in Owo, Ondo State, was reportedly macheted to death by some unknown persons suspected to be cultists on Wednesday, February 10.
The public relations officer of the institution, Samuel Ojo, who confirmed the incident to newsmen, said the reason for the attack is not yet ascertained.
Ojo rubbished rumours that the killing might be connected with the Student Union Government elections which is scheduled to hold this week. He said there was no evidence to support the claims that the killing is connected with the SUG elections and that the killing happened outside the school premises.
Ojo went on to add that an official statement on the incident will be released later.
