A student of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, of the Department of Mass Communication, identified as Omowunmi has reportedly died after visiting her boyfriend at his house.
According to another student identified as Toba, Wumi who lived around Gaa Fulani, off-campus was rushed out of her boyfriend’s residence after a brief illness, and was said to have been taken to the hospital, but was rejected and she eventually died in the car.
According to information, her Yahoo boyfriend bought her an iPhone 12 Pro Max worth over N700K and gifted her N1M on her birthday. The incident happened on November 2, 2021, in Iree, Osun State.
In the trending video, friends and neighbours were seen using heavy canes and sticks to flog Tabo after it was reported that he had used Wumi for money ritual.
While in cell, Tabo, said he didn’t use her for money ritual.
“The girl slept in her boyfriend’s residence. When she left his place she developed complications and started foaming in the mouth. She was rushed to hospital but was rejected. She died on the way to another hospital,” a source said.
The source continues: “We believe that Wumi was used for rituals by her boyfriend and that was the reason some of her friends reported the matter to the police. The officers took her body to a morgue in Ikirun community.”
Following her demise, they have been widespread speculations that the student was killed for alleged rituals purposes by the said boyfriend. It has also been alleged that the duo only started dating about two weeks ago, and the yet-to-be-named boyfriend had gifted the deceased student an iPhone 12 mobile phone, and a N1 million cash gift.
