Body of missing Unilag student found in Lagos morgue

The body of a University of Lagos (Unilag) undergraduate, who was declared missing about three weeks ago, has been found in a mortuary.

Remilekun Odeleye was declared missing days after she went for a party on the Island but never returned.

Unknown to her family and friends, she died in an accident on Eko bridge and her body was deposited in a morgue.

According to one of her friends, Medese Dewumoh, who broke the news of her death on social media, Remilekun left her hostel on April 1 and they became worried when they couldn’t reach her on phone.

She also lashed out at those who insinuated she was a call girl who was killed by ritualist.

She wrote;

“I thought you were missing babe. I tried to look everywhere for you but alas you had died in an accident the next day you left home. We thought you were missing, never knew you had gone to never come back. With tears in my eyes and pain in my heart, I pray you rest well because we are all going to die and yours came a little early. We are going to forever miss you baby, I am going to be strong not because I am capable but for you my happy soul, who loved with all her heart. You lived a short life but you touched my heart with your love and happiness. Now to you who live your life trolling, backstabbing, judging and saying hurtful things about people you know nothing about, I hope you are happy your wish came true. Yes she is dead but she was not a prey of what you thought and hoped it was. She died in an accident on Eko bridge April 1, and yes she was never a call girl or whatever name you all have for it. I hope this makes you sleep well tonight and makes you fulfilled.”


Remilekun has been buried at the Atan cemetery in Yaba.
