One of the new graduates of the University of Ilorin, Korede Adeyanju, has been killed by some assailants in the Ibeshe, Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

The Ikole-Ekiti, Ekiti State indigene, who rounded off his studies in History Education in 2016, was said to be awaiting the call up to the National Youth Service Corps, when he was attacked and killed last Friday.


PUNCH Metro learnt that a group of men broke into his apartment on Ayodele Raji Street and smashed a mortar on his head.

The 22-year-old was said to have been rushed to the Ikorodu General Hospital,  where he was confirmed dead.

The corpse was reportedly deposited in the hospital’s morgue, while the case was reported at the Ipakodo Police Division.

The victim’s uncle, Kehinde Adeyanju, said the assailants were suspected to be members of the Badoo cult, a group which had been terrorising Ikorodu residents.
He said, “He finished schooling last year and was awaiting the national service. When the call up was delayed, he decided to start working as a cashier in a sports betting centre in order to get busy. He started the job last Monday.
“He had returned from work on Thursday and was chatting on the phone with some of his friends till the early hours of Friday, when the men entered the room.
“They had tried getting in through the sitting room, but the burglar-proof bars prevented them. They later went in through the bedroom after removing the burglar-proof bars, which probably were not strong enough.
“From what we saw, it appeared that he struggled with them before they overpowered him and smashed his skull with a mortar which they also left behind.”

Adeyanju explained that the Badoo gang had been killing residents with a trademark of leaving mortar behind after each operation.

The victim’s brother, Olayinka, added that the group made away with Korede’s two phones and his laptop.
He said, “He was the only one in the room at that time. There were other people living in the house, because it is a six-flat building; but I am surprised that nobody heard the struggle and raised the alarm.
“I am aware that the gang also attempted to break into the landlord’s house, but they only succeeded in tearing his net; they couldn’t break the burglar-proof bars.”

While calling for the arrest and prosecution of the killers, Olayinka said his brother was among the many victims of the Badoo gang.
“This has been going on for years and it is time to stop it. We believe the community leaders have a hand in the killings. When one of the cult members was arrested sometime ago, he insisted on seeing one of the community leaders before he would talk. We want the government to get to the root of this matter and bring the perpetrators to justice,” he added.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that investigations had begun.

Operatives of the Department of State Services in Osun State have arrested a herbalist, simply identified as Jelili and a commercial driver, Elijah Oyebode, for allegedly killing a 400-level student of the Osun State University, Miss. Rofiat Adebisi.

The driver, who was brought before some journalists by the DSS on Thursday  confessed that he hypnotised the deceased, who boarded his vehicle from Ipetu Ijesa to Osogbo and he subsequently delivered her to the herbalist, who paid him N10,000.00 as the price of the lady.

He said the herbalist had given him a charm and told him to bring any young lady, who had not given birth to any child. The driver stated that the charm was in his pocket and he only made a body contact with the deceased.

Following the body contact he had with the lady,  Oyebode said Adebisi  became hypnotised and that he drove her to the residence of the herbalist in Ikirun after other passengers in his vehicle had disembarked.

He said the herbalist paid him and he went and dumped the luggage of the deceased at a bush but while doing that, her phone started ringing and he removed the SIM card from the phone and threw it away.

Oyebode said after this, he gave the phone to one Yusuf, who sold it for N20,000.00 and the proceeds was shared equally between him and the seller. The driver said he told Yusuf that a passenger forgot the phone in his vehicle.

Antonella Fiordelisi, an 18 year old Instagram celeb and model who also engages in the sport of fencing, with following of over 285,000 fans, exposed Juventus/Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain of flirting with her and asking for nudes on social media. She took to her Instagram page to reveal that the former Napoli star has been chatting with her on Whatsapp for sometime but recently asked her for a 'sexy' picture revealing 'her flesh'.

 According to the WhatsApp chat, Higuian asked for her nudes, saying:
“Another one. Like the ones on Instagram.”
Fiordelisi replied: “I’ll do it in a moment, hang on.” and the footballer was left waiting for her nudes, only for her to send him a pic of her 'squeezed' face.
She exposed the chat to her followers on IG and wrote ;Higuain, he asks for pictures of my arse on Twitter… he’s sick!

But following comments from her fans that she didn't need to be so harsh on the footballer by exposing the chat and then calling him 'sick', she took to her Facebook page to apologize to Higuain, saying she didn't intend to create needless gossip by uploading the chat. Translated to English, the Post reads:
"Just for clarity: I spoke with Higuain a couple of times on Instagram, and our conversations were playful and funny. I did not want to offend him – Higuain is not sick, he has always been polite with me and never inappropriate. I apologise to him, I did not intend to create needless gossip. It was just a joke. I learned my lesson".
