Murders have taken place at the Michael Otedola College of Primary Health Education (MOCPED) in Epe, Lagos State, where a professor known as Ahmed Saheed and an undergraduate student were killed.

It was reported that the instructor was murdered near Poka town in Epe, while the student, known as Razak Bakare, was shot and killed on the university’s grounds.

Our reporter received word from a police source that the two occurrences, which he characterized as “unfortunate,” happened within 48 hours of one other.

The killings of the professor and the student were verified by legislators and traditional leaders from the villages in where they occurred.

Meanwhile, they claim that on Wednesday, the student was tailed and murdered and on Friday, the instructor was shot to death.

Aladeshoyin of Odo-Noforija in Epe Division claims that there is unrest in the Poka academic community at the moment, which he attributes to the current political climate.

Ogunlaja, the traditional ruler of the village, has expressed his sorrow over the events that have taken place.

He said that the sad deaths had disrupted the calm character of the community of Noforija.

As a result, he has called on the administration of the institution to install closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras around the school grounds and surrounding areas.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, were also contacted by Ogunlaja, who requested that extra security officers be deployed in the neighborhood.

He requested that the Lagos State Government repair the fence that had fallen around the school.

According to Oba Olufolarin Ogunsanwo, Alara of the Ilara Kingdom, he also denounced the acts and encouraged law enforcement officials to track down and apprehend those responsible.

His assurances were that the traditional institution will make every effort to combat such obnoxious tendencies in the community, which he described as “as nasty as they come.”
