Godwin Ayogu, a Nigerian citizen, and a 300-level student at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana, has been murdered in the West African country, and his body was dumped by the roadside.
Ayogu was studying social sciences in the institution and was last seen on Tuesday afternoon, sources at the university said.
Several sources said the deceased had planned to be in Nigeria on Wednesday to see his parents who live in Ketu area of Lagos, western Nigeria, but his body was found by the roadside where it was dumped.
Although police in Ghana are saying they are investigating the matter, but many Nigerian students fear the case might be swept under the carpet.
A source quoted a Nigerian student as saying, “We need the Nigerian authorities to interfere and we need security for Nigerian students here.”
The source quoted another student as adding: “It’s sad dat a Nigerian is murdered and no one is doing anything about it. With all these things happening, this place isn’t safe.”
The deceased was the first child of his parents.
Friends say he played the drum very well and liked to referred to himself as “the drummer boy”
