It was further revealed  that a demand for 20 million Naira was made to the mother of the girl because they believed that the victims parents received some undisclosed  huge some of money.

“They however made a mistake to have chosen the grounds of Arthur Jarvis University, because the Chancellor and Founder is a father, he never rested. He would call and come out through the mid night and was awake with many of us”.

We take the wellbeing and welfare of every student seriously and apart from the discrete measures we have taken to forestall further occurrence of such security breach, we guarantee that nothing of such will ever happen again, Arthur Jarvis assured”.
