Five suspects have been nabbed, and they are all Nigerians; Ogunsanyo Abayomi, who was his roommate in first year, obi Ilozumba, Oti Chijioke, Jimoh Timilehin, and Isaac Ifidon.
Police are still continuing their investigations, and according to the Nigerian high commission in Ghana, they would be arraigned in court on May 5, this year. The commission also says the suspects are being kept in different locations, so as not to be able to compare notes.
An international lawyer, Mr Nelson Ogbuanya, spoke to Channels Television on the legal perspective of the crime.
He stressed the need for the Nigerian government to keep track of every Nigerian student abroad.
“The government should be able to track how many Nigerians are in some schools in different jurisdictions abroad to guide against situations where a student would be killed and the school authority would deny that the individual is not a student.
“We must care for our people,” he said.
He further talked about how a Nigerian can seek for certain rights while in another nation, stressing the need for a universal law that would cover certain individuals in foreign nations.
