Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has directed that killers of the 2022 Miss MAPOLY winner, Happiness Odeh, be arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law.
In a statement in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, on Sunday, Abiodun condemned the murder of Odeh, student of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, who was reportedly raped and killed along Iperu Remo by men suspected to be kidnappers.
The NDII Mass Communication student was said to be on her way to a movie location in Ipara, Ode-Remo, when she was killed.
In the statement on Sunday, the Governor said, “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, 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 warned 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.
The state helmsman vowed that his administration would do everything within the law to ensure Odeh’s killers are brought to book, adding that 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.
