Julia, a final year student of the department of Mathematics and Statistics, Delta State Polytechnic, was allegedly murdered by her cultist lover. She was reportedly killed inside her room in a private hostel, off Polytechnic Road in Ogwashi-Uku, Delta State, on Tuesday, 22nd of November, 2016.
According to Sahara Reporters, the deceased had spent the night with her yet to be identified lover in her room at the Hostel when she was killed.
Other students residing in the hostel said the unidentified lover had stolen the deceased lady’s ATM card the previous day. One of the students who spoke on condition of anonymity said,
“After her cultist lover had left the following day she received an alert of a N100,000 deduction from her bank account where she discovered her ATM card was missing. Not comfortable with the development, she went straight to her bathroom to take her bath. Immediately after that, she received another alert of N45,000 making it N145,000 that was [withdrawn] from her account by the unknown person. Before leaving for the bank, she complained to us [about] the strange development. Again, on her return from the bank where she went to complain, she told us the bank assured her that the culprit could only be known and arrested after going through their CCDC camera. She was told to go home and report back the following [day] before meeting her untimely death”
The source alleged that the boyfriend sneaked into Julia’s room and murdered her with a battle axe, locked the corpse inside the room and ran away with her keys.
“Not until the next morning when everybody became apprehensive of her whereabouts and we [had] to break her door where we saw her lifeless body with blood stains everywhere in the room. Immediately we raised the alarm and everybody in the area rushed down and the matter was reported to the Ogwashi-Uku Police Station.”
The state police command is currently on the trail of the suspected cultist who is presently on the run.
