A 300-level female undergraduate of the Benue State University (BSU), who earlier went missing, has been found dead.
The deceased, whose name was given as Erekaa Dooshima Naomi, was reportedly missing for three days before her lifeless body was discovered on Wednesday in a vicinity opposite the school.
Witnesses alleged that the late student’s phone, ID card, and blood-stained clothes were first recovered on Tuesday around the area where the body was later found in a shallow grave the following day outside the institution’s campus opposite the College of Health Sciences.
The Dean of Students Affairs at BSU, Prof Emmanuel Ortor, told our correspondent on the telephone that he was yet to receive details about the incident.
