According to her confession, she visited Adefolalu’s house with two of her classmates, Walex and Smart, to confront and assault her for sending her away.

Joy had lived with the deceased for three weeks and was supposed to sponsor her education but was asked to leave because of her misconduct.

During the assault, they realized that the lecturer intended to report them once they left her alone and decided to murder her.

Walex and Smart hit Dr Adefolalu with a stool before stabbing her repeatedly.

She said:

It was Walex who said that she would recognize us if we left her alive, so they started stabbing her with the knife we brought, I then struggled with the knife with them which made Smart enter her kitchen and take a knife there and they continued stabbing her.

“They stabbed her in her stomach, her hands, her legs and she was just shouting Jesus, Jesus. After all that, they took her phone and laptop and her car battery before we left the house in the motorcycle we came in.”

The Niger State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abiodun Wasiu disclosed that investigation of the matter is ongoing, adding that justice will be served.

The police are on the track of Walex and Smart —SS 2 students at Day Secondary School.

Meanwhile, the case is being transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigation and prosecution.
