Ms Clarks’s lifeless body was found with her genitals removed. It is suspected that her missing parts may have been used to perform rituals, but the police are yet to confirm that, as they say, they have started investigations.

School management assures students, parents, guardians and the general public that “security at the University remains strong”.

“On behalf of the University, Management wishes to extend its deepest and heartfelt condolences to her family, friends and loved ones”, the statement adds.

In the meantime, the boyfriend of the deceased, Nicholas Ato Bronk Taylorhas, been remanded by a Cape Coast Circuit Court B in Ghana.
