Police: Why we’re yet to declare Hilton Hotel manager, owner wanted over OAU student murder

The Police Public Relations Officer for the Osun State Police Command, Yemisi Opalola, has said that the Command has not declared the son of the owner of Hilton Hotels and Resorts, Ile-Ife, Raheem Adedoyin, wanted for complicity in the murder of the late Timothy Adegoke because the autopsy result into the cause of the death of the student is not yet out.

Opalola also said the owner of the hotel, Dr Ramon Adedoyin, is still in police custody and yet to be charged to court because the autopsy result is yet to be out.

The lawyer to the family of the deceased, Kayode Ajulo, had expressed dissatisfaction that the Command was yet to declare Raheem, who is the Managing Director of the hotel, wanted after a suspect confessed that Raheem arranged how the corpse was evacuated and taken to the bush. The lawyer also said was befuddling that the owner of the hotel has not been charged to court.

Reacting, Opalola, in a text response to questions by our correspondent, said the autopsy report was being expected.

When asked why the police haven’t declared Raheem wanted and haven’t charged his father to court, the PPRO replied, “The autopsy result is not yet out.”

NewsClickNg had earlier reported that the Master’s student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, died in controversial circumstances in the hotel and was buried in a shallow grave without the knowledge of his family or the police.
