A final year Guidance and Counselling student of the Nwafor Orizu College of Education, Nsugbe, Anambra State, was allegedly killed on Saturday by some rapists after she failed to allow them to sexually abuse her.
The killing was the climax of a series of rapes said to have become commonplace at the college in the past few months.
The student, whose name was yet to be confirmed on Sunday, was said to be an indigene of Obeledu in Anaocha Local Government of the state.
Her body was found near the school chapel not far from the lecturers’ quarters.
The Provost of the college, Dr. Clara Obiagwu, declined comments on the incident when contacted.
“Stay off our college until you are invited. Did you contact me before nosing around my college? I have told you, don’t report about my college,’’ she told reporters.
The Public Relations Officer of the College, Mr. Willy Chukwuma, however said the incident did not occur on the campus.
The Anambra State University was last month shut down after students took to the street to protest the killing of a female student by armed robbers that invaded a female hostel.
