August 23, 2014 – Picture: Covenant University Student Kidnapped & Murdered In Lagos By Friend
A 20-year-old student at Covenant University in Ota Ogun state has passed away.
The 300 level Electrical engineering student was strangled to death by his unfriendly friend.
The deceased left his parents house on the morning of August 6, 2014 to an hospital in Yaba area of Lagos state for medical treatment and never returned home.
The student identified as John Chinedu Okere reportedly left home with six thousand Naira.
When he didn’t return that night, his parents went to the Police station to file a missing person case.
The following morning, his parents received a call from a private number who requested for 10 million ransom for the release of their son.
To cut the long story short, the caller never called back.
Chinedu’s parents later got a call from the police that the decomposing body of their son has been found at an undisclosed hotel in Ejigbo.
The friend who murdered him has been arrested and identified as 24-year-old Okorocha Michael who hailed from the same town as the deceased.
He graduated from Lagos State Polytechnic in Ikeja and has been unemployed since he finished his Youth Service in February 2014. He is currently in police detention.
May God accept Chinedu’s soul and judge his killer.
