NDYs, NANS Demand Autopsy Report Of Slain Ajayi Crowther University Student


There is growing outrage following the death of Jeffery Chamuke Akron, a Mechanical Engineering student of Ajayi Crowther University.

The deceased was allegedly  beaten to death by his colleagues  over an allegation of phone theft.

The 25 students  responsible for the murder, aged between 18 and 34, were on Wednesday arraigned before Chief Magistrate Court in  Oyo State in connection with the murder. They have been remanded in prison until July 8 pending trial.

Following the development, leadership of the  National Association of Nigerian Students ,NANS, and a certain Niger Delta group, Niger Delta Youth Leaders Front have demanded for autopsy report on the deceased. 

The protesters stormed the institution on Wednesday demanding for autopsy report of the late student who incidentally was an Itsekiri  Prince from Warri, Delta State.

Demanding justice for the late  Jeffery Chamuke Akron, Comrade Lucky Emonefe, NANS Universal President and   Honourable  Chukwutem Nwogor, President of Niger Delta Youth Leaders Front, who spoke with journalists,  confirmed visit to the institution.

They  dismissed the identity of the 25 suspects arraigned at the Magistrate  court in Oyo and  accused the police and management of the institution of plot to shield the real killers of  the deceased.

They jointly demanded for the real identities of the students involved in the murder, autopsy report conducted on the deceased and meeting with his immediate family by the management of the institution.

Honourable  Chukwutem Nwogor, who maintained that the hostel where students are being kept at  Ajayi Crowther  University  was inhabitable also indicted the Minister of Education for indifference since the unfortunate incident happened.

Honourable Nwogor noted that being the regulatory agency on private and public institutions, the Minister of Education, Honourable Tahir Mamman, should show more than passing interest in the unfortunate incident at the institution.

He said:”On  our visitation to Ajayi Crowther yesterday ( Wednesday), if you visit the hostel of the school, it is shameful to the National University Commission . What people are just interested in is money, not thinking about safety of the people. I don’t see any reason why the proper facilities are not being put in place before you can approve such school to have an hostel. “Now that this unfortunate incident has happened, the school is running helter skelter to make sure that it fixes the hostel. 

“It is also shameful that till this moment, not the Commissioner for Education  for Oyo State has visited the scene, not even the Minister has visited or put a call to the family of the late student. What is the reason why you are in government? It is to protect lives and property. “The killing of the innocent boy was barbaric. That hostel is inhabitable”.

Investigation revealed that apart from the NANS and the Niger Delta Youth, Itsekiri elders stormed the institution last Wednesday.

Led by an Uncle of the deceased, Prince Yemi Emiko, the elders  visited the hostel where the late Prince was allegedly beaten to death and also had a meeting with the school management. They  also visited the morgue where the body of the deceased was said to have been deposited.
