300Level, Nigeria.
The remains of a senior lecturer of the
Ondo State University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH), Okitipupa, Professor Gideon Okedayo has been laid to rest.

Naija News recalls that the late Professor Gideon Okedayo was also a pastor of the popular Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), was allegedly killed by suspected kidnappers.

The Pastor and professor who had lectured in the institution’s Department of Mathematics was allegedly killed by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.

He was killed in few days after he was abducted on his way to his hometown in Igarra, Edo State.
The funeral was attended by his colleagues both in school and church.

One of his colleagues, Pastor Johnson Umoren of the Ondo Province 5 RCCG, while speaking on the “ great loss,” described death as inevitable, hence the need for everyone to be impactful while alive.

In his speech, the Pastor urged the government to ensure that those behind the gruesome killing of the professor are nabbed and brought to face justice.

“Therefore as we mourn, we should not mourn as those without hope. We are very sure he is resting with the Lord.
You must summon the courage to forge ahead and continue where he has stopped. This I know will gladden his heart.
“To the wife and children. Don’t forget you are not alone, the Good Shepherd has promised ” he will not leave nor forsake you,” he said.

Describing her late husband as a genius whose death was avoidable, his widow, Mrs. Marrietta Okedayo said; “You were a devout Christian and a pastor indeed who lived an exemplary life which I am still emulating till this very moment.
You were a great disciplinarian, academic, a father and a mentor. You were a genius with no match, but Nigeria did not protect you.”
