“So members of the O’odua Peoples’ Congress mobilised into the bush and combed everywhere. When they could not find her, they contacted the Police. The Police subsequently joined the search party.
“When they got to a portion in the farm, the police perceived an odour and they traced the spot and found her lifeless body with thick blood oozing from her private part. Sunday was immediately arrested by the OPC, being the only person on the farm that day,” he said.
