Senior naval officer ‘gruesomely’ killed in Kaduna military cantonment






The decomposing body of a senior naval officer and Commandant of Command Secondary School of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC) Jaji, has been found in a well in a nearby village to the Jaji military cantonment, Kaduna state.


The Officer identified as Commander Oluwayemisi Ogundana with service number NN/ 2367, was declared missing last Friday, before her body was found on Sunday.
She is however suspected to have been murdered by some persons, including a staff of the college she presided over.
Though, efforts to reach the spokesman of AFCSC, Major Umar proved abortive, it was gathered that, two suspects, including a teacher at the Command Secondary School, Jaji and one other have already been arrested in connection to her murder.
A source in Jaji told Blueprint correspondent that, when the military officer was found missing, efforts were made to reach her via her telephone but it was discovered that the phone was left in her room which was locked.


According to the source, “the door to her room was forced open because the phone was ringing inside the sitting room and efforts to reach her other numbers failed. Bloodstains were observed on her beddings and clothes as well as on the floor from the bedroom to the bathroom. Her vehicle, a Toyota  SUV was also missing.”
It was learnt that military authorities in Jaji kept some of her immediate staff and family members under close observation which finally paid off when two persons were arrested in Zaria while trying to dispose of her car.


Upon interrogation, they confessed to participating in the gruesome murder of the senior military officer and subsequently led the investigators to Agwanloyo by the railway line inside an abandoned shallow well near the Deeper life Church in Jaji cantonment.   


It was learnt that the corpse of the murdered Naval officer was dismembered and put in a big sack before being dumped in the shallow well.
The deceased was married with three kids, who are in their Lagos residence with her husband.
