A 400 Level student of the University of Jos, identified as Ruth Yakadi, has been raped to death by suspected assassins.
The deceased student, who was in the Department of English, was reportedly killed after being raped by her assailants.
Its reported that the body of a lady was found close to Harris Filling Station at Farin-Gada bridge in Jos North local government area of Plateau State.
An eyewitness said that the lady was found half-naked with her under wears hanging on her legs, indicating that she had been raped.
Reacting to the tragic incident, the Head, Department of English in UNIJOS, Prof. Jeff Doki, in a statement, said the deceased was a spillover student, waiting for mobilisation by the National Youth Service Corp, after completing her project.
“I have lost three students since I became HOD in 2021, two males in July and September this year, 2022, during the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities,” he said.
The HOD directed other lecturers to provide information on the WhatsApp group of the department.
Doki said, “Information reaching me indicates that the girl who was killed last Saturday night at Farin Gada is a spillover student of our department. She was supervised by Dr Douglas Kaze and had issues with her long essay. Perhaps she is done with the project perhaps she is not.
“I am requesting Dr Kaze and Mrs Vera Aaron and Mr Innocent Dajang to kindly provide information about her on this page, please. Her name is Ruth Yakadi. She is Anaguta by the tribe.
Information available shows the girl was raped and killed thereafter. As things stand now, we are wondering if they are rapists or assassins.”
Meanwhile, the state police spokesperson, Alfred Alabo, who confirmed the incident said, “You even have information about it more than me. The long and short of it is that we are aware of the incident. An investigation is on and when we’re done, we will get back to you.
