Ogun Graduate Murdered In Cold Blood, Buried By The Road side For Preaching



Oluwatosin Onadipe, a graduate of Computer Science from Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, was allegedly hit with an iron rod by an official of a motor park in Ago, Odogbolu Local Government Area of the state for preaching. He was reported missing on December 17 after he left home to attend a programme at the Redemption Camp. His body was later found by the roadside and buried by officials of the Odogbolu Local Government Area after it was dumped by police officers.
According to PUNCH, Raymond Onadipe, the father of the deceased, after several efforts to reach his son proved abortive, reported a case of a missing person at the Ago Police Station. Some days later, his phone rang and was picked up by someone who said he found it on the roadside. The father became suspicious and went to Ode-Remo to retrieve the phone. The person who picked up the phone introduced himself as the Seriki Hausa of the community and said two of his boys who went to Ijebu-Ijesa in Ago-Iwoye found the phone. The police arrested those who found the phone and moved to Ago Police Station. On December 25, the father was called that a corpse was buried along the roadside by health workers from Odogbolu Local Government Area, which was said to be his son’s corpse.
The father noted that the circumstances surrounding his son’s death took another turn when an eyewitness told his eldest son that the deceased was allegedly hit by an official of the Ago motor park when he was preaching on the premises on the day they last spoke with him, which the police confirmed after several back and forth. The police initially denied picking him up and said he had no injuries on his body. However, when one of the police teams that went to the park was asked to show the pictures taken at the scene, there was blood all over his body.
The state Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alamutu, confirmed the incident and said the suspects had been taken into custody while preliminary investigation was on to unravel the circumstances behind his death. The father is appealing to the police authorities to bring the killers of his son to justice.
