Family, community grieve over missing Delta varsity student

The community of Iru Egbede in the Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State is reeling from the disappearance of Faith Omodon, a 19-year-old 200-level student of Delta State University, studying Business Administration. Faith was last seen on March 30 when she left home to accompany her father to the farm.

Edward Omodon, Faith’s father, confirmed her disappearance, revealing that it happened during the Iru National Conference. “We were gathered in the community hall when we received the distressing news that my daughter was missing. She had gone to the farm that morning with a motorbike, taking her breakfast along,” he recounted.

Ikpoba Johnbull, the head of the village vigilante group, corroborated the story, stating that upon hearing of Faith’s disappearance, they immediately mobilized and searched the area extensively, including neighboring villages, but found no trace of her except for the remnants of her meal in her flask.

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

Donald Egboko, the national youth chairman of the community, expressed deep sorrow over Faith’s disappearance and appealed to security agencies for assistance in locating her.

The Divisional Police Officer of the Abudu Police Division, Iyayi Kenneth, confirmed that the incident was reported and disclosed that the case had been transferred to the state police command for further investigation.

When contacted, the state command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, promised to gather information from the CID department and provide an update but had not responded by the time of filing this report.
