Police have arrested Rachael Olufogbe, a 300-level student at the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) in Ekiti State, for allegedly slashing a fellow student with a razor blade during a heated argument.

The incident occurred on Saturday, June 22, 2024, in a private hostel in the Oye Egbo community, outside the school premises.

According to reports, Olufogbe and the victim had an argument over the use of a drying line in the hostel. The victim moved Olufogbe’s clothes to create space for her own, which led to an exchange of words.

The situation escalated when Olufogbe allegedly picked up a razor blade and inflicted injuries on the victim.

Prof Sunday Fashina, the Vice-Chancellor of FUOYE, confirmed the incident, stating, “The incident happened outside the campus in a private hostel. Nobody dares that within the campus because they know the rules and regulations. If anyone tries that, it will catch up with them. The police are already handling it.”

He added, “The suspect is in police custody, and once it involves the police, we cannot interfere. When they are done with their investigations, they will write to the Vice-Chancellor to give their report, then we conduct our investigation. So, let’s wait for the outcome of the police investigation.”
