The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State has expressed shock over the killing of a don, Professor Gideon Okedayo, describing the murder as wicked and inhumane.
Okedayo, a lecturer at Ondo State University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa, was kidnapped in Edo State, while on the road to Igara. He was later murdered and dumped in the bush by yet to be identified criminals.
In a statement signed in Akure by the State Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Alex Kalejaye, decried kidnapping, killing of law abiding citizens and other criminals operations, saying they are repugnant and condeminable.
He said governments at all levels would not relent in their sincere pursuit of security measures to ensure the society is made safe for all.
Kalejaye lamented, “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 described the deceased as “an amiable gentleman” that would be deeply missed by his family members and the University community, particularly in Okitipupa. He prayed God to comfort and console them.
