Timothy Adegoke Death: Family Condemns Plan To Transfer Case To Abuja

Timothy Adegoke Death: Why Autopsy Is Delayed – Police - Naija News 247

The family of the murdered master’s student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Timothy Adegoke, has condemned the move to transfer the case to Abuja.

The family in a letter forwarded to the Commissioner of Police in the state, Wale Olokode, through its lawyer, Naim Adekilekun, expressed confidence in the state police command to reveal the mystery behind Adegoke’s death.

Recall that Adegoke had travelled to the state to sit for an examination at the OAU Distance Learning Centre, Moro Campus, when he was declared missing on November 7.

The police later discovered his remains in a forest along the Ede-Ife Road.

Adekilekun in the letter lamented that the family of the deceased have been left out in the investigation of the case.

He demanded that the state police command carries the family and their legal representative along and properly briefed to erase all doubts.

The letter partly read, “Our clients have informed us and we understand that since the commencement of investigation into the dastardly act, which has been linked to the owners and management of the Hilton Top Hotel, Ile-Ife, the exhumation of the decomposing body of the victim, the arrest and detention of Ramon Olagoke-Adedoyin and other suspects, the family has been left in the dark and has not been carried along in the progress made so far.

“The palpable fear being nursed by the family as a consequence of the silence from your end towards the family is further heightened by series of unfounded and baseless press releases issued by the Hilton Top Hotel, lle-Ife, trying to cover up their Achilles’ heels and the roles played by the suspects in the murder, which are designed and calculated to mislead the curious public and interfere with the whole investigation of the crime.

“The fear being exhibited by our client was lent more credence when your Public Relations Officer, Yemisi Opalola, granted an interview on Fresh FM radio, Osogbo, and said, ‘Dr Adedoyin is still very much in police custody here In Osun. If, in the course of our investigation, we are required to transfer him to the force headquarters in Abuja, we will do so. For now, however, he is still very much in our custody.

“We would like to stress that the family’s concern is not out of place, going by the report about Adedoyin, who is being touted to be an influential personality. One then begins to wonder what Abuja has to do with this investigation. We believe in your command and we know we can get the best from your end rather than Abuja.”
