kidnappers Kill Ondo APC Chieftain in Revenge

Killed by his abductors to avenge the killing of one of them..Odimayo’s corpse was found floating on Ogolo River.. A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Mr Olumide Odimayo, who was abducted last Thursday, was found dead yesterday in Ese-Odo Local Government Area.

The late Odimayo was abducted by gunmen while returning from a trip.

It was learnt that his body  was found near Ogolo River, between Sabomi and Igbotu communities.

APC  State Publicity Secretary, Prince Abayomi Adesanya, who confirmed Odimayo’s death, said the incident had been reported to the police.

Adesanya said the body of the late politician was found by vigilantes, adding that the death had thrown the party into mourning.

Odimayo’s corpse was found floating on Ogolo River between Sabomi and Igbotu towns in the local government.

Another source said the late APC chieftain was killed by his abductors to avenge the killing of one of them (abductors) by the youths of the town after the abduction.

The source said, “Immediately after Odimayo was kidnapped in Igbotu, the youths of the town chased them and caught one of them, so the person caught was beaten to death by the youths.

“Few days after the incident, the victim was found dead in a river, he must have been killed by the kidnappers because one of them was caught and killed. “

The secretary said the late Odimayo contributed to the success of APC in the last governorship election.

He said: “He supported the party with all he had when he returned from the United Kingdom (UK). We will surely miss this great man.”

It was gathered that the late Odimayo returned from London shortly before he was abducted.

Police spokesman Femi Joseph, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said the command had arrested eight suspects.

The spokesman said the police arrested the suspected kidnappers of the slain politician before his death.

He said efforts by the police and some youths led to the arrest of the suspects.

Joseph said: “The leader of the kidnap gang confessed to the police that Odimayo was in their custody. We discovered that the other kidnappers decided to throw him into the river when they knew that they were no longer safe.

“We felt so bad with the unfortunate incident and we are worried by the death of the politician after a successful operation. I can assure you that the suspects will face the full wrath of the law. Others in the abduction and subsequent killing of Odimayo will not go unpunished.”
