Dr. Kayode Ajulo, lawyer to the father of late Timothy Oludare, who died at Hilton Hotel, Ile-Ife, Osun has urged the Nigerian Police to declare Dr Rahman Adedoyin’s son, Mr Raheem Adedoyin wanted over the murder.
Oludare was until his death a postgraduate student of Obafemi Awolowo University. Ajulo in a statement on Thursday, in Abuja, said Adedoyin’s son should be declared wanted for his alleged ignominious and gruesome acts in the murder case.
He said it was curious the intriguing statement made by the Osun State Commissioner of Police, wherein Dr Adedoyin’s son was identified as the one who dumped the corpse of the late Adegoke in the bush.
“Considering the circumstances of the murder of Oludare, the law enforcement agency ought to exert energy in arresting Adedoyin, who is allegedly at large.“
Now that the Police know so much, it is time to start asking more questions: Why has Raheem Adedoyin not been declared wanted and an intelligence team churned out to arrest him?
“Why would the hoteliers break into the Late Timothy Adegoke’s room on the first night when he actually paid for two nights at the hotel?
“Why have not the suspects been charged before a Court of Competent record as prescribed by the Constitution,” he asked. He said that the credibility of the Nigerian Police Force at such a crucial time like this depends in large measure on their handling of this present case.
He noted that anyone, including legal representatives who attempted to hastily justify the cause of death of late Oludare and exculpate the suspects, were liable to be prosecuted as accessories after the facts.
The legal practitioner said as the event unfolds, the family is resolute on ensuring that justice is done, adding that anyone found wanting would face the wrath of the law within the limits permissible by the law.
