Plateau State Police Command on Thursday confirmed the killing of a 300-level student of the University of Jos, Jennifer Antony, by unknown gunmen suspected to be ritualists in a hotel in Jos, the Plateau State capital.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) ASP Ubah Gabriel Ogaba, told journalists in Jos that the Command received a distress call in respect to the sad incidence and swung into action to unravel the perpetrators of the evil act.

Late Jennifer was said to have been missing since December 30, 2021, and her corpse was discovered on January 1.

The deceased according to information gathered was a student of Special Education and Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Jos.

The killing is suspected to have been carried out by a suspected ritualist, who allegedly drugged the victim before removing her eyes.

The incident allegedly occurred on January 1 in a yet-to-be-identified hotel along Zaria Road, Jos.

Ogaba said following this sad Incident, the police commissioner held a meeting with all hotels operators in the state and introduced new techniques of identifying crimes around them.

‘We are aware of the incident involving the student and investigation has since commenced with a view to identify and arrest the perpetrators,’ he said.

‘The commissioner of police also held a meeting with all hotel managers in the state and introduced a new way of identifying and tracking new crime in the state.

‘We urge the public to always feed the police with credible information about any crime happening around your community with a view to tracking the perpetrators.’

Efforts to get the University Management and Student Union Government (SUJ) to speak on the crime were not successful as they were not responding to their phone calls at the time of sending this report.
