The Senate has moved to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of one Miss Joy Odama who was killed from acute overdose of cocaine allegedly administered on her by one Usman Adamu

The action follows a Point of Order from Senator Rose Oko asking  the upper legislative chamber to investigate dastardly act committed on the person of one of her constituents.

19 year-old Joy  until her death was an undergraduate of University of Technology, Cross River State.

Miss Odama was holidaying when on the 18th of December 2016, when a friend of hers invited her to the home of the said Usman Adamu whom was introduced to her as a philanthropist.

Two days after she honoured the invitation to Adamu's house and when she didn't return home on time; her mother placed a call to her.

But the next day, Police Officers from Karimu Station informed her that her daughter was sick and admitted in hospital.

The Police Officers according to Senator Oko refused to disclose the hospital but returned to inform her the next day that her daughter had died and her body embalmed and deposited at the mortuary in Federal Medical Centre.

Senator Oko wants justice done on the matter, asking Senate to request the IGP to investigate the matter and bring perpetrators to book.

The matter is referred to Senate Committee on Police and Judiciary for further investigation.
