The note in which the suspect exonerated himself of any wrongdoing in the MBA student’s killing, went viral on Sunday.

But Oludare’s family did not find it funny.

It said in a statement on Sunday by its lawyer, Kayode Ajulo: “Our attention has just been drawn to a broadcast allegedly made by the owner of Hilton Hotel, Ile-Ife, Prince Rahmon Adedoyin with respect to the ongoing police investigation on the strange death of Mr. Timothy Oludare.

“From the abysmal worldwide broadcast allegedly released by the Suspect from police custody, now trending both in print and social media, what was supposed to have been a solemn declaration and recording of statement at the Police facility was transmogrified into a musical concert or show of comedy fest, advertisement and a maudlin plea of non-guilt and exoneration by the Suspect.

“What is more befuddling and disheartening is the fact that the Police who is meant to be an unbiased Investigating Agency would allow its custody to be used as a recording studio for the Suspect to toot his own horn!

“Applying the test of a reasonable man, no doubt one will be led to the irresistible conclusion that the broadcast is not only an obfuscating façade but also a stratagem of invasion and confusion.

“Considering the trajectory and the incendiary surrounding the heinous and gruesome murder of Mr Timothy Oludare, it is expected that the Police ought to have been very professional and discreet in ensuring that a thorough investigation is conducted, no matter how highly placed anyone could be!

“Be that as it may, while it is not in our stead to direct the Police on how to conduct its investigation, however the perdurable questions that urgently cry for answers are as follows:

“Since the exhumation of the Corpse of Mr Timothy Oludare, has the Police put a protective cordon around the facility extending to some radius beyond the location where his body was found? There is a probability that this not the first victim. The use of a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is an efficient and effective means to search for buried bodies.

“Was there a CCTV in the hotel? If no, why? It is pretty standard for CCTVs to be in public places especially hotels. If none was installed, same is suspicious and indicative of premeditation.

“Has the premises of the suspect been searched by the Police in order to discover any incriminating materials? If not, a warrant should be obtained to search his properties for such.

“While we await the outcome of Police investigation, it must be stated with every sense of purpose that we shall ensure, as ministers in the temple of justice and adherent to the dictates of the rule of law that the water of justice is not muddled in the instant case by any guise no matter how highly placed anyone could be!

“We therefore urge the Inspector General of Police to use his good offices to see to it that the deceased gets JUSTICE!

“In the interim, while we await the completion of autopsy on the cause of death of the deceased, we take the liberty to request that the remains of the deceased be promptly released to his family for a proper and befitting burial.”

The 12-year-old student of the Lekki-based school died last November after he was allegedly attacked by five of his colleagues for refusing to join a cult group.

Oromoni’s father had claimed his child was beaten and fed a liquid chemical that eventually led to his death.

Dowen College, however, dismissed the claim, alleging that the boy sustained injuries while playing football with colleagues.

In a letter dated January 4, and to Femi Falana (SAN), counsel to the family of the deceased student, Mojisola Dada, the chief coroner of Lagos, said the inquest will be held at the magistrate court located at Epe district.

In the letter by Mikail Kadiri, coroner of Epe district, Falana was asked to forward a list of suspects and witnesses to be summoned to court for the judicial inquiry.

“I have the directive of the chief coroner of Lagos State, honourable justice M. A. Dada to remind you that the inquest into the death of Sylvester Oromoni will commence on Saturday, 15th January, 2022 at Magistrate Court No. 4, Epe district, combined high court and magistrate court of Lagos State, Epe at 9:00am prompt; the hearing shall be in open court,” the letter read.

“You are further reminded to file and serve depositions of all witnesses you intend to call at the inquest and forward a list of persons whom, in your opinion, needs to be summoned by the court.

“The depositions may be filed at any of the Magisterial Districts in Lagos State and served electronically on all parties concerned. Please find attached the name, firm/representation and phone numbers of parties that attended the preliminary meeting held on the 16th December, 2021. Thank you.”

Two autopsies were conducted on the deceased, one by the Delta police and the second by the force’s Lagos command.

The first autopsy earlier released to the public had revealed that the deceased died of “chemical intoxication”.

After a police probe, Hakeem Odumosu, Lagos police commissioner, said findings had been forwarded to the state’s department of public prosecution (DPP).

In the DPP’s advice released on Wednesday, it was stated that the police investigation and the two autopsies conducted on the body of the deceased student failed to establish a prima facie case against the suspects.

A Lagos magistrate court had also granted bail to the five students charged with the alleged murder of Oromoni.

The police also released a housemaster and other staff of the school, saying the court order to detain them had elapsed.
