Prof. Gideon Okedayo, a senior lecturer at the Ondo State University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH), abducted by gunmen, has been found dead.

SaharaReporters had earlier reported that Prof. Okedayo who was on his way to his hometown, was seized at a boundary between the Akunnu Akoko area of Ondo and Igara in Auchi, Edo State, on Thursday evening.

A source at the university told SaharaReporters on Tuesday that the dead body of the lecturer 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,” he said on phone.
