DELSU student goes missing while farming in Edo

Faith Omodon, a 19-year-old Delta State University, DELSU 200-level student, is said to have vanished on March 30, 2024, after visiting her father’s farm.

That fateful day, Omodon, a business administration student, vanished from her father’s farm, leaving her home.

According to Edward, the girl’s father and a citizen of the Iru Egbede community in the Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State, the incident happened during the “Iru National Conference,” the community’s national convention.

“We usually have the conference at this time of the year. We were seated inside the community hall when we heard loud wailing outside that my daughter was missing.

“She had left for the farm earlier that morning with a motorbike taking her breakfast with her,” he said.

Speaking on the matter, Ikpoba Johnbull, the leader of the village vigilante group, stated that his men had gone straight to the farm where the missing girl was reported to have gone with her mother in tow, but they were unable to locate her despite searching the area.

“We immediately mobilised and combed the area up to Izighiri and Uwumuwe, two neighbouring villages, but could not find any trace of her.

“We only found the leftovers in her flask. We informed our neighbouring vigilante groups as we spent that night inside the bushes, but there was no result.

“We then advised Omodon to formally report a case of missing person at the Abudu Police Division,” he said.

The community’s National Youth Chairman, Mr Donald Egboko, also spoke on the matter, expressing how distraught the community was by the event and pleading with the security services to assist in finding her.

The incident was reported at the station, according to Divisional Police Officer Mr Iyayi Kenneth, who also stated that the case has been forwarded to the State Police Command for additional investigation.
