The remains of Mayor were on Monday night moved in an ambulance to the morgue of neighbouring University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH).

UNIBEN’s spokesperson, Dr. Benedicta Ehanire, on Tuesday morning, condemned the brutal killing of the student.

Ehanire said: “The management of UNIBEN has condemned the brutal and sad killing of a final year male student, known mostly as ‘Mayor’ (real name withheld), in the night of Monday, 3rd April, 2023.

“The gruesome shooting occurred in one of the halls of residence, and was carried out by yet-to-be-identified gunman.

“While commiserating with the family and colleagues of the late student, management enjoins other students to be calm, as the police and other security agencies are working hard to fish out and arrest the culprit.

“Management is also working closely with the internal security units, in ensuring that such dastardly incident does not occur again within the university’s premises.”

UNIBEN used to be notorious for cultism, but the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Lilian Salami, fought the menace to a standstill, thereby sanitising the university.
