 Timothy Adegoke: Family demands participation as autopsy holds today
Timothy Adegoke

The family of Timothy Adegoke, the deceased master’s student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, has kicked against the plan to transfer the case to Abuja.

In a letter to the Osun Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, the family’s lawyer, Mr. Naim Adekilekun, expressed confidence in the state police command’s ability to solve the enigma surrounding his death.

Adegoke had gone to the OAU Distance Learning Centre, Moro Campus, for exams when he was reported missing on November 7.

The police eventually removed his body from a woodland along the Ede-Ife Road.

In the letter, Adekilekun bemoaned the fact that the deceased’s family had been kept in the dark during the investigation.

While praising the police for their efforts, the attorney insisted that the family and their legal representative be adequately briefed to eliminate any questions.

The letter partly read, “Our clients have informed us and we understand that since the commencement of investigation into the dastardly act, which has been linked to the owners and management of the Hilton Top Hotel, Ile-Ife, the exhumation of the decomposing body of the victim, the arrest and detention of Ramon Olagoke-Adedoyin and other suspects, the family has been left in the dark and has not been carried along in the progress made so far.
