The recent abduction and killing of Elozino Joshuala Ogege, a 300 level student of Mass Communication at the Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka, is attracting condemnations from stakeholders.
The latest is coming from the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Delta State University, Abraka Branch (ASUU-DELSU).
The union, while condemning the cold murder of Ogege, has further raised the alarm over the activities of ritual killers in the university town.

The Union lauded the speedy response of the university authorities, the Nigeria Police and other security agencies when Miss Ogege’s disappearance was reported and the eventual discovery of her body.
The union, however, called on the State Government, Security Agencies and the Abraka Community to synergize efforts to keep Abraka free of all forms of criminality.
It further noted that the DELSU, over her short period of existence, has become a reputable institution and one of the most sought-after universities in Nigeria.
The Union thus called on all relevant agencies not to allow the University’s name to be tarnished by criminal elements who now brazenly identify themselves as “yahoo boys.”
DELSU ASUU added that the surging criminality in the town does not only pose danger to the students and staff of the university and other residents of the town, but is also a slur on the entire image of the state and the nation.
The union sympathized with the parents of Elozino and the Mass Communication Department, describing the death of the First Class student as an irreparable loss.
Nigerian Tribune gathered that Miss Ogege was declared missing last Thursday and was subsequently found killed.
Three suspects, described as “yahoo plus” boys have been reportedly arrested in connection with the murder of Miss Ogege.
