Mr Musibau Fabiyi, the father of late Hammed Ayinla Fabiyi, the final-year student of Tai Solarin University (TASUED) who was dragged out of an exam hall and shot dead by suspected cult members has debunked claims by law enforcement that his son was a cultist.

On July 4, a group of suspected cultists stormed an exam hall while exams were ongoing and dragged out Hammed, a 400-level student of history at the Ogun state-owned university.

An eyewitness account and footage had it that the victim was lynched afterwards.

The attackers, all dressed in white shirts, fled the scene before campus security arrived.

The Ogun state police command stated that Hammed was a member of the Eiye cult group.

According to the Ogun State Police Command PRO, Omolola Odutola, the attackers are a group of “about six” men who belonged to a rival confraternity called the Aye.

However, the victim’s father has denied that his son was a cultist.

He identified his son as an official with TASUED’s student body during a chat with TheCable in Ogun on Friday, July 5.

The bereaved father said his son may have been killed for reasons unrelated to cultism.

“From what I know about my son, he is not a member of any cult. I haven’t even seen him with any dangerous item before,
” he said.

“What I can remember is that he told me about some affairs in his school. Since he was a student union executive, he told me that one of the leaders of the union was involved in the misappropriation of funds. He was hellbent on exposing that.

“I think that is where the problem is from. My son is not a member of any cult. If he was, I would have known. I am his father.

 “It is unfair how students can do this to themselves. If this was a cultism issue, there would have been threats flying around or cases of retaliation.”
