A 200-level student from Delta State University (DELSU) has gone missing, and the people of the Iru Egbede community in Edo State’s Orhionmwon Local Government Area have appealed to the security forces for assistance in finding him.

According to the NICKNAMES, Miss Faith Omodon, a student in the Department of Public Administration, has reportedly been missing since March 30, 2024.

People living in the area expressed their sadness and grief at the tragedy.

The student from DELSU reportedly left home for the property on March 30 and has not been seen since.

During his statement, the girl’s father, Mr. Edward Omodon, revealed that his daughter had departed for the farm on the tragic day in question.

During our national conference, this entire thing transpired.

Midway through the year is when we typically convene the Iru national conference. I was sitting in the community hall with my family when we heard cries for help from outside. My daughter had gone missing.

He explained that earlier that morning, she had departed for the farm on a motorbike, bringing her breakfast flask along.

The leader of the village vigilante group, Mr. Ikpoba Johnbull, also spoke at length, explaining that they had followed the girl’s mother to the farm the moment they heard about her absence that evening.

Johnbull added that the vigilantes wasted no time in joining the search for the missing girl, and they scoured the region all the way to the nearby communities of Izighiri and Uwumuwe.

“All we discovered was the bottom half of her lunch container. While hiding out in the bushes that night, we alerted nearby vigilante groups, but to no avail.
