I Was Ordered To Dump Corpse Of OAU Murdered Student In Bush, Witness Tells Court  

A witness in the alleged murder of a former student of the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile Ife, Oyetunde Kazeem has told an Osogbo High Court, Osun State how the son of the owner of the Adedoyin Hotel, Roheem Adedoyin ordered him and other staff of the hotel to dump the corpse of the murdered student, Timothy Adegoke in the bush.

The incident which happened a year ago, has seen the arrest of the hotel owner, Adegoke Adedoyin with his son disappearing since then.

Under cross-examination at the continuation of trial from Femi Falana SAN, the witness said their boss had told them that the matter had been reported at the police station and that the police had given a permission to evacuate the body to the mortuary.

The suspect said while on their way to the morgue, the hotel managing director, however, parked the vehicle beside a bush and ordered them to dispose of the body.

“I joined him in the vehicle because he said he had reported the case to the police,” the witness said.

“When our M.D came to the hotel on that day, he said the case had been reported to the police and the officers in charge had told him to evacuate the corpse to the mortuary, so I felt we were going to the mortuary,” he claimed.

“He stopped beside a bush and told us to come down and carry the body inside the bush. He left the body inside the bush.”

Three of us took the corpse from the hotel. MD took properties of the deceased student along when we were going to the bush. He packed them inside a blue bag belonging to the deceased. The leftover water the deceased’s student drank last, his phone and laptop were inside the bag and he dumped everything beside his corpse inside the bush,” the suspect added.

He further said that the hotel managing director drove him and the other person back to the hotel after they had disposed of the body.
