Focused Unilorites,

We are so sad to have received the news about the death of one our colleagues, Olajide Blessing, a 300 level student of Faculty of Agriculture who was raped and gruesomely murdered on the eve of Wednesday; June 2, 2021.

We use this opportunity to condemn this despicable act. As a Union, we will embark on a visit to the family and friends of the deceased to convey our condolence messages on behalf of all Unilorites and we pray that God grant the family, friends and all Unilorites fortitude to bear this unfortunate and irreparable loss.

The issue has been taken up by the law enforcement agency and a robust investigation has commenced to ensure that justice is attained for Blessing. We urge every Unilorites that have vital information regarding this incident to visit the nearest police station for proper briefings to aid the investigation process and help nip the perpetrators in the buds as we assure you of maximum safety.

We plead with all fellow colleagues to remain calm while being security conscious to allow police conduct their investigation. Be rest assured that we are part of the process and will not rest until justice is secured.
