In a telephone interview on Sunday, Atoyebi noted that several students had been arrested and handed over to the police, although the total number of assailants remains unknown. “For now, I think we have some, and those have been handed over to the police,” he said.

When asked if the deceased was Alex Timileyi, a prince from the Warri Kingdom of Delta State, Atoyebi said he could not confirm that. “By now, the school must have known the student. It’s not a secret. His status as a prince, I don’t know. But to the best of my knowledge, he was a student of Ajayi Crowther University,” he added.

Regarding the hostel porter, Atoyebi stated, “For the dereliction of his duty, he is on suspension and has also been handed over to the police to assist with investigations.”

A source from the school, speaking to PUNCH Online on Saturday under anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter, reported that the deceased was beaten from 6 p.m. on Friday until about 10 a.m. on Saturday.

“They said they caught him with a stolen phone. They started beating him from 6 p.m. yesterday (Friday) until he died at about 10 a.m. today (Saturday). The incident happened at Shepherd Inn. It’s like a lodge or a hostel now. They also shaved the hair of the guy before beating him,” the source said.
