LAGOS—THE management of Babcock University, Ilisan Remo, in Ogun State, yesterday, disclosed that it has informed the family of Prof. Yinka Olomojobi, who was killed by suspected kidnappers, last Friday.

Recall that Olomojobi, a professor of Human Rights and Gender Law, was killed last Friday along the Iperu-Sagamu Road, about eight kilometres from the Ilisan-Remo campus, and about three kilometres from the Iperu campus of Babcock University.
In a telephone chat with Vanguard, the Director of Communication and Marketing of the institution, Dr Joshua Suleiman, said security agencies are already on the trail of the killers.

Suleiman said: “The University has officially notified the family of the deceased of the ugly incident. Security agencies are on top of the matter. Our security people are also assisting and helping in the investigation. We are sure that the killers will be brought to book soon.

“As for the burial arrangement, that is left for the family to decide but the university will not shirk in doing the needful in such a situation. We are assuring our students, parents, workers, lecturers and well-wishers that Babcock University is a safe and conducive place to study and work and we are up to the effective discharge of our responsibilities.”
