Odama met her untimely death on the 24th December, 2016 after she met one Alhaji Usman Adamu who according to information available to us claimed to be a philanthropist and was ready to give her helping hands towards her education.

Since December 2016 the 200 level mass communication student of Cross River State University of Technology (CRUTECH) was gruesomely murdered no body including the alleged killer, Adamu has been arrested by the police, despite the mystery that surrounded her death.

However, Prof. Ayade, in a meeting held on Sunday in Abuja amongst Cross River State journalists and legal practitioners residing at the FCT and environs which he was represented by his SSA Branding and Communication, Dr. Dorncklaimz Enamhe said no stone would be left unturned until justice is done over the case.

Dr. Enamhe said the government of Cross River State led by His Excellency Prof. Ayade is ready to put up all its resources together to ensure that the killers of the slain 200 level student of CRUTECH are brought to book.

“If we do not rise up and condemn this act of inhumanity to man and charge the police to arrest and prosecute the culprits this act will continue unabated. Who knows who is their next target?

“I want to call on the acting president Prof. Yemi Osibanjo, the Senate and the House of Representatives to mandate the police to unearth the killers of this young promising Cross River citizen whose life was cut short at her prime.

“Also, I want to call on all mothers, human rights organisations both local and international to support the call for #Justice4JoyOdama# movement until the culprits are brought to book.

Meanwhile Prof. Ayade has asked me to thank all of you who have taken the pain to make sure the case was not swept under the carpet, especially in the used of social and conventional media to create the awareness which has brought us to where we are today.” Dr. Enamhe concluded.
