Gov Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state has charged the police and other security operatives to find the suspects fingered in the murder of a student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, Happiness Odeh.
Odeh, who was the school’s 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 Mass Communication student, which was reportedly dumped after she was allegedly killed by her abductors, was discovered on Thursday.
The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, on Sunday, described the killing of the student as barbaric and wicked.
The governor said, “My administration will not tolerate ungodly and criminal activities that would put the state in a bad light.
“My administration will do everything within the law to ensure Odeh’s killers are brought to book.
“I have given the police and other security agencies in the state marching order to fish out the perpetrators of the devilish act.”
While commiserating with the family of the late student, Abiodun assured her relatives that those responsible for the murder would be made to face the full wrath of the law.
