APC condoles varsity community on death of kidnapped professor


Proffessor Gideon Okedayo was murdered, and The All Progressive Congress (APC), Ondo State Chapter has expressed shock while describing it as a wicked and inhumane murder.

Okedayo, a lecturer at the Ondo State University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa (OSUSTECH), was kidnapped on Sept. 5 in Edo State on his way to Igara, his home town.

On Monday, he was found dead in the bush left by criminals who are yet to be identified

Mr Alex Kalejaye, made a statement holding this information and made it available to newsmen on Wednesday in Akure.
Kalejaye encouraged government at all levels not to relent in their sincere pursuit of security measures to ensure the society is made safe for all.

“I am sure Professor Okedayo had many plans; certainly, descending to the unknown world prematurely was not one of them. May the merciful Lord grant his good soul a resting place.

“It is just unspeakable for a man, who had assisted in the mentoring and nurturing of many undergraduates over the years to be so hacked to death,” he said.

The publicity secretary described the deceased as “an amiable gentleman” that would be deeply missed by his family members and the university community, particularly in Okitipupa and prayed God to comfort and console them.
