  38. It could be all these cultists at villagers .the police should look into this case cos its not a small thing attacking students

  39. What kind of attack on students is this?, some people don’t fear God anymore. Just for earthy possessions. .please security measures should be taken in those areas to avoid further occurrence. .

  40. Oh my God, what happened to the school securities, where were they when those assailants found their way.

  41. Our Nigeria police force should take action..may we soul rest 8n perfect peace to every one on this platform let’s try and be careful

  42. There has been lots of complains about the security of that oau hotel. If student cant feel safe in school it would be hard to perform well.

  43. Its really hard to believe and very disheartening that a 300 level which his parent will believe in the next two years they will enjoy the fruit if their labour and now he’s gone

  44. This attack should be look into and security supposed to be tight in the hostel, what a pity. May her soul rest in peace.

  45. So sad to hear about this, may the soul of the deceased rest in peace… The institution should do a very thorough investigation and implement justice…

  46. This is an unimaginable wickedness. Government should take strict actions in curtailing this wickedness in our higher institutions

  47. This is sad, and may the soul of the departed rest in peace.
    The lord will grant the family the strength to bear the loss

  48. Some criminal are very wicked,after collecting everything that he owned they still went ahead and killed him. God save your children.

  49. This is really sad….. ASUU is on strike so why are students still at their hostels coz this is when perpetrators of evil carry out their duties….

  50. Its indeed a very sad story to hear.. The security of the school should be taken in deep consideration especially during festive seasons

  51. Dx is not gud at all. D security men should tighten dia seat belts old especially web soul is not on session

  52. That’s so bad, what a painful exit to his family, those killers must spend the rest of their lives in prison, may his soul rest in peace

  53. This is terrible..if there is no security in the universities.. what will happen to the future of this country.. may his soul rest in peace.

  54. What a sad new is this , may god protect us from all this murderer , may console his parent
    The school management should provide good security for the hostel

  55. Almost all the universities in Nigeria have low security system and also with little or no training at all to counter bad situations…. All they do is listen to radio and shout if you wear short skirt but if the real Ekosodin guys scatter everywhere now they will be looking for where to hide… It’s well

  56. Oh my God, upon all this suffering in and Down in school, What a world of wicked people. Killing a your fellow human being without humanity feeling. May GOD console his family.

  57. So sad. A 300 level student. What a great lost. I wonder how the parents are feeling right now. May your soul rest in peace.

  60. Sad just a year and his through with University ….hmm May his soul rest in peace and the police should investigate and let them be punished

  61. This is so touching and sad. You can imagine how the parents will be feeling now after paying money for fees, accommodation and other things. Only God can comfort the family.

  62. It is well o. I insist that Crimes and Criminalites need to be tackled headlong in this country. we cannot keep loosing lives needlessly

  63. They have dashed the hope of the deceased family. Sending their souls to eternal damnation for earthly possessions that we never really own? Terrible world! ASUU is on strike so why are students still at their .

  64. Poor security God will expose the person for his evil act I don’t know why this country is full of wicked people

  65. Ha…The heart of man is desperately wicked. A man just ended his fellow man’s life like he will do to a chicken. May nemesis catch up with those persons who have caused a family and a university to sorrow. May God give the family of the deceased peace in this time of trials. Rest in peace brother.

  66. Really a sad news.. Rate of crimes in the society is becoming more horrific.. May his soul rest in peace.. Condolences to his family

  67. I thought ASUU is on strike, what are they still doing in school. There is always consequences for our careless acts. God forgive us. My condolence goes to the family and loved ones

  68. This is very unfotunate. The school authority should have know that the lives and properties of the students are the first priority to secure not on till such incident like this happened before they start protecting. May his soul rest in peace.

  69. Its so unfortunate that life was lost! If they were security guards there, these wouldn’t av happened this way…rest in peace brother….off campus should always have security guards.

  70. May God console the family. But these unknown persons who attacked how sure are we that it is not an act from cultists.

  71. May God console the deceased, this matter should be thoroughly looked into, a lot of securities are needed to curb this situation

  72. Students in the hostel need adequate security… May God console the families of the deceased. May God continue to protect us all

  73. This is really tragic, killing a fellow human being because of material possessions? Why can’t they take what they want to take and leave the student alive. The police should please track them down.
