The Ondo State Police Command has disclosed that two men joined Alao Adeyemi, the boyfriend of Khadijat, the daughter of a former deputy governor of the state, Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo, in killing her.
Adeyemi was arrested by the police on Sunday after it was discovered that the remains of the deputy governor’s daughter was in a shallow grave in his room.
The police yesterday said two other persons that had yet to be identified were also involved in the death of the 400-level student of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba, Akoko.
The Command Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, while parading Adeyemi at the headquarters in Akure, the state capital, said the two accomplices fled after the dastardly act.
Joseph told reporters, “The command received an information that Adeyemi, 27, who was Khadijat’s boyfriend, had allegedly killed her and was about to dispose of her corpse.
“The police immediately swooped on him and on close observation of his residence, it was discovered that the suspect had actually buried the girl, who had been missing for six days.
“He was actually planning to exhume the remains and finally dispose them of because, according to him, he was not comfortable with the stench coming from the decomposed body as it was not properly buried.”
The PPRO said the suspect would soon be charged to court, while effort was ongoing to arrest the accomplices.
The suspect had already claimed that two men that the slain deputy governor’s daughter brought into his house killed her, denying any involvement.
