The 400 level students were remanded for allegedly killing Adeyemi Yusuf, a 200 level Computer Information System student in the institution.

The two accused, Akanbi Khalyd (23) and his accomplice Vera – Cruz Babashola (22) were arraigned on Friday before Magistrate Olusegun Ayilara on a two-count charge bearing on conspiracy and felony to murder

Police Prosecutor, Inspector Oladoye Joshua, told the court that the duo committed the offence on March 27, 2018, at about 12.30 a.m. in the school.

The plea of the accused persons was not taken due to the magnitude of the offence.
