Vanguard reports that Ewarawon was allegedly murdered by a suspected paramilitary organization in the university. It was reported that Ewarawon, who lived in a private hostel outside the school campus, Shanghai Hostel, was attacked in his room by the armed gang of seven boys who were disguised as student cadet officers.
The family of the deceased has filed a petition to the Ondo state commissioner of police, Mike Ogbodu. In the petition filed, the counsel to the family, Olufemi Meduoye, said: “The armed assailants broke into Olumuyiwa’s room while he was asleep and attacked him, thereafter, brutalized, bruised and inflicted on him fatal injuries from which he fell into coma. The gang dumped Olumuyiwa’s body at the General Hospital, Iwarooka Akoko before good samaritans brought the incident to the attention of the family three days later.”
