Kehinde Ayanboade,
Ibadan.

Oyo state Police Command has disclosed two possible reasons and motives why the slained Trado-Medical Expert, and founder of Oko Oloyun worldwide, Alhaji Fatai Yusuf was assassinated.

Oyo State Police made this known in a press release signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP. Olugbenga Fadeyi and made available to newsmen on Friday morning.

The release with the title “THE UNFORTUNATE DEATH OF ALH FATAI YUSSUF A.K.A OKO OLOYUN” reported that Oko Oloyun’s death might probably be in connection with an alleged book keeping records fraud in his Lagos office which subsequently allegedly led to the burning/destruction of some financial/book keeping records.

The release further reads that “In addition to other possible motives, a plausible nexus is therefore being suspected between the fire incident and the attack on the deceased”.

“Meanwhile, some of the staff and his two (2) Police escorts are being questioned by a team of crack detectives from the homicide section of State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID Iyaganku, Ibadan with a view of finding and apprehending the fleeing suspects who wrecked the heinous act”.

Other part of the released press statement noted that “The Commissioner of Police Oyo State Police Command, CP. Shina T. Olukolu psc(+) wishes to put the record straight on the most unfortunate death of Alh. Fatai Yussuf a.k.a ‘Oko Oloyun’ on Thursday 23rd January, 2020.

” A report was received by the Divisional Police Officer, DPO Igbo-ora that around Akeroro Area on the Abeokuta/Igbo-ora/Iseyin road, the 2-car convoy of the deceased was allegedly ambushed shortly after passing through five different Police Stop and Search teams along the route by yet to be identified assailants who fired at the moving vehicles on the road from the thick forest”.

“The 2-man armed escorts of Policemen protecting the deceased engaged the assailants, but they managed to escape back into the forest after a single shot had hit the deceased who died later of his bullet injuries.

“However, an interesting twist to the story was that the deceased probably had earlier detected an alleged book keeping records fraud in his Lagos office which subsequently allegedly led to the burning/destruction of some financial/book keeping records.

In addition to other possible motives, a plausible nexus is therefore being suspected between the fire incident and the attack on the deceased.

“Meanwhile, some of the staff and his two (2) Police escorts are being questioned by a team of crack detectives from the homicide section of State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID Iyaganku, Ibadan with a view of finding and apprehending the fleeing suspects who wrecked the heinous act”.

“The Commissioner of Police therefore seizes this opportunity to appeal to any member of the public with credible information not to hesitate in passing same to the Oyo State Police Command to assist in the detection of the crime and apprehension of the offenders”.

“while at the same time, assuring members of the public that the Police is on top of the situation and working with other Police formations/units to ensure that the directive of the Inspector General of Police, IGP M.A. Adamu, NPM,mni to crack this case as quickly as possible is complied with to the letter”.

“In addition, it is our resolve that no matter how long it takes, the Commissioner of Police promise to bring the culprits to justice within the shortest possible time”.
