Odimayo’s corpse was found near Ogolo River, between Sabomi and Igbotu in Ese Odo local government area of the state by some local vigilante members.
The Spokesman of the APC in the state, Mr. Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya who confirmed the development, described it as ‘tragic and rude shock to the party. According to Adesanya,
“The tragic death of Mr. Olumide Odimayo is a rude shock to us in the party because this is someone who came from London and started the struggle with us.
“I can’t get myself as I am speaking with you. Although, our party members have been sending their condolences to his family but his death is very painful to us all”, Adesanya said.
Odimayo, fondly called Londoner by his colleagues and friends, was kidnapped by unknown gunmen at his hometown in Igbotu, Ondo state last week Thursday, June 15.
