Barely one week after he was kidnapped, the corpse of Professor Gideon Okedayo, a senior lecturer at the Ondo State University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH), has been found inside a bush.
The professor of Mathematics was kidnapped by gunmen Thursday last week along Igara road in Akoko Edo area of Edo State while traveling to his hometown.
A source at the University made the disclosure to the media confirming that Professor Okedayo’s dead body was found inside a bush.
“It is sad. They have killed Prof. Okedayo. We learnt about his gruesome killing yesterday (Monday) night. We were called from the police station that they have found his dead body.
“And they confirmed to us that he must have been murdered by his abductors. This is just a sad moment for all of us at the university,” the university source was quoted.
