The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Osuntuyi, 25, was also accused of being a member of a secret cult in the university.


The police prosecutor, Mr. Caleb Lerano, told the court that the accused was arrested by the police on January 3 at about 11.30 pm along Adebayo Street in Ado-Ekiti with a locally made pistol.
