A bright student is dead after she brushed off the sexual advances of several cultist members, police in Nigeria said.
Lagos State Police said that a 17-year-old University of Bowen student, Opeyemi Odusanya, has been killed by cult members who are active in the city.
Opeyemi was a star Biochemistry student at the university, university staff members reported.
The undergraduate was killed for refusing the sexual advances of the cult members and also for being proud of herself.
Opeyemi was stabbed to death in her parents’ house.
After her death, the boys used her mobile phone to send a text message to the victim’s mother detailing the reason of the attack.
“Your child was too proud. We have been asking her out, but she has refused to accept our advances. We have killed her to teach other girls a lesson,” the text message read.
A hospital spokesperson said that the girl was stabbed in the stomach.
