Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun has reacted to the killing of the 2022 Miss MAPOLY winner, Happiness Odeh, by some unknown kidnappers.
The Governor has made a vow to arrest the assailants.
The governor, through a statement on Sunday, revealed that he had ordered security agents to effect the arrest of the killers and ensure that they do not go scot free.
Abiodun has condemned the killing of the ND 2 Mass Communication student of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, by her abductors.
We had earlier reported that the victim was raped and killed along Gov Abiodun’s Iperu hometown, by suspected kidnappers.
The NDII Mass Communication student was on her way to a movie location in Ipara, Ode-Remo when she was killed.
Abiodun confirmed the incident, saying “the student and the school beauty pageant winner was reportedly abducted along Iperu Remo road on her way to a movie location in Ipara-Remo last Tuesday.
“The corpse of the ND Mass Communication student, believed to have been dumped after she was allegedly killed by her abductors, was later discovered on Thursday.”
Gov Abiodun, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, described the killing of the student as barbaric and wicked, expressing shock over the incident, which he said put Ogun in a situation that was never synonymous with the State.
Abiodun wrned that such an inhuman act will not be left unpunished, saying his administration would not tolerate ungodly and criminal activities that would put the state in a bad light.
Abiodun, who vowed that his administration would do everything within the law to ensure Odeh’s killers are brought to book, said he had given the police and other security agencies in the state marching orders to fish out the perpetrators of the devilish act.
“While commiserating with the family of the late student, Gov. Abiodun assured her relatives that those responsible for the murder of the promising lady would be made to face the full wrath of the law,” Somorin said.
