A 300 level student of the University of Jos, Jennifer Anthony has been murdered after she was drugged inside a hotel. Some of her vital body parts were also missing when her remains was discovered.
The gruesome incident of the killing of the student of the Department of Special Education and Rehabilitation Science of the University, who was found dead in a hotel with her eyes gorged out was confirmed by the operatives of the Plateau State Police Command.
She was reportedly lured to Domus Pacis lodge along Zaria road Jos, by a man said to be her boyfriend. Anthony was later drugged before she was killed and her vital body parts removed.
The boyfriend was later said to have destroyed every evidence that could link him to the dastardly act. He left the hotel after removing virtually everything that might be used to trace him including the lady’s phone and other valuables in her bag.
A hotel source disclosed that the Jennifer’s mutilated body was later discovered by one of her friends who traced her to the hotel and discovered her in a pool of her blood while the eyes and other vital organs were missing.
After the friend alerted the hotel management, the police was invited who immediately commenced investigation to unravel the culprits. Jennifer’s remains have since been deposited at the Plateau State Specialist Hospital.
Plateau police command spokesperson, ASP Ubah Gabriel Ogaba, who confirmed the incident affirmed the Command has commenced full investigation into the murder.
“The Command is aware of the ugly incident which took place on January 1, at the Domus Pacis lodge. The suspect, who is at large, went away with all means to identify the victim.
