The Ondo State Police Command has revealed that the daughter of a former deputy governor of Ondo State, Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo, was killed by three men.
Speaking on the murder in Akure, the state capital Wednesday, the police said two men joined Alao Adeyemi, the boyfriend of Khadijat, 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.
Police spokesman, Mr Femi Joseph, while parading Adeyemi at the headquarters in Akure, the state capital, said the two accomplices fled after the act.
“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 they intensified their search to nab his accomplices.
