Ajayi Crowther University Students Beat Colleague To Death

Alex Timileyin, a 200-level student at Ajayi Crowther University (ACU) in Oyo State, was allegedly beaten to death by a bunch of students for stealing a cell phone.

On Saturday, May 25, 2024, the tragedy occurred inside Shepherd Inn, a guesthouse located on the school grounds.

It was also said that the dead had his hair forcibly shaved by the students.

A school source, who spoke to the Punch on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the situation, said the deceased was beaten from 6 p.m. on Friday to around 10 a.m. on Saturday.

“They said they caught him with a stolen phone. They started beating him from 6 pm yesterday (Friday) until he died at about 10 am today (Saturday). The incident happened at ‘Shepherd Inn’. It’s like a lodge or a hostel now. They also shaved the hair of the guy before beating him,” the source said.

A video obtained by LIB showed the deceased rolling on the floor while other students attacked him with sticks.

Meanwhile, the management of Ajayi Crowther University (ACU) has expelled the students who were implicated in the death of another student.

Femi Atoyebi, the institution’s spokesperson, announced the expulsion in a statement issued on Saturday, May 25.

The University declared that, contrary to popular belief, cultism does not exist in the institution, and that it has a zero-tolerance policy for any form of anti-social vices or wrongdoing.

“Contrary to what is trending, the university affirms that there is no cultism in the institution, just as the university has zero tolerance for any sort of anti-societal vices and misconduct,” the statement read.

“It is important to stress that the expelled students do not belong to any cult group.”

In addition to the expulsion, the University has handed over all of the students involved to detectives from the Oyo State Police Command for investigation.

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
