University of Ibadan student Taiwo Shittu raped & killed in her home

27 year old Taiwo Omolara Shittu (pictured above), a 500l student of the Department of Aquaculture and Fisheries Management, University of Ibadan, was attacked and killed on the 19th of February at her sister's home at Opeyemi street, Gbagi in Ibadan.

Her sister, who she lived with, returned home from work around 5:30pm on Wednesday to find Taiwo in the pool of her own blood, her pants down to her ankle, and a machete stained with blood on the bed. Taiwo had been attacked with the machete as there was an opening on her head.

A man who cuts grass for her sister has been arrested and is currently being held at Alakia Adenubi police station in Ibadan. The man, said to be in his early 30s, has denied any involvement in the murder but it was the machete he uses to cut grass that was found in the crime scene.

The case has been transferred to the State CID. As soon as I get more updates from late Taiwo's family, I will update you guys. So sad. May her soul rest in peace..amen.

Lisa London said...



***************************************
Highly unlikely the gardener would murder there and leave his signature at the scene.....and then wait around to be picked up. More probable to suggest the knife was picked up by the assailant as a weapon.


They should be finger-printing it or don't they have finger printing facilities in Nigeria?

If she was raped then do a semen sample?

Brutish. Why is it that the ultimate weapon at higher institutions is rape?
Why must women always take the fall when mens blood boil for whatever reason?
Why must a woman be raped and then murdered? Must it all revolve around the degradation of a female?

Sometimes, I believe our country has many terrorists, because rape is a weapon of terror. It is weilded by cowards.

RIP to the young lady. I hope the police actually investigates this case properly o & not just prosecute the guy who trims the lawn simply because it was his machete that was found in the crime scene. I really hope they investigate it well cos one thing that plagues most Nigerians is the crazy character of "OVER-Knowing" without any investigations. We just love to always lazily conclude that the way something seems is definitely what it is.
