Senator tasks police to fish out accountant killer

Senator, representing Ibadan South Senatorial District, Dr Kola Balogun has called on the police to carry out a thorough investigation into circumstances surrounding killing of an Eruwa indigene, Timothy Adegoke Oludare who was allegedly murdered in a hotel in Ile Ife, Osun State, last weekend.

Balogun, made the call in a condolence message to family of the slain chartered accountant. Oludare had lodged in the hotel to prepare for his Master in Business Administration (MBA) examination at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife.

In a release by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Mr Dapo Falade, the senator described the incident as heinous and a great crime against humanity. He added that if the alleged murder and dismemberment of the body of the deceased was true, as reported by the media, the police have an onerous task not only to unveil the circumstances of his murder, but also bring the perpetrators to book.

Currently away in Kigali, Rwanda on an official visit, the senator expressed a heartfelt condolence with the aged parents and the entire Oludare family of Eruwa.

He stated, “I read in the media the sad news of the gruesome murder of one of our illustrious sons in Eruwa in Oyo South Senatorial District. It is, indeed, a very great heinous crime against humanity. According to what I read in the media, the late Timothy Adegoke Oludare, in his quest for more fulfillment, left his family in Abuja and came to Ile Ife to write his MBA examination at the OAU, Ile Ife.

“He was killed in bizarre in his hotel room, reportedly dismembered and hurriedly buried, wrapped with some of the clothings belonging to the hotel. After some initial denials, some arrests were said to have been made, implicating some highly-placed individuals, especially the owner of the hotel.

“I want to implore the police and other authorities concerned to dig deep and unveiled the circumstances of the murder act. No one, no matter how powerful, should be spared in the quest to bring the perpetrators of the heinous act to book. The police should look into the situation where a lodger would be brutally killed, some parts of his body dismembered, allegedly for ritual purpose and hurriedly buried.

“Our law enforcement agency should look at the circumstances of his death, the initial attempt to cover things up and the circumstances of his hushed burial in a hidden place. Doing this, will greatly help in uncovering the circumstances of the brutal murder of this young illustrious son of Eruwa. While doing this will not bring back our son alive, it will surely bring a relief to the bereaved family.

“I pray to the Almighty God to grant the deceased a peaceful rest. May God grant the wife and children of the deceased, his aged parents, the people of Eruwa and the entire Oyo South Senatorial District the strength to bear the avoidable loss,” Balogun said.
