The Ondo State Command of the Nigeria Police Force on Friday said it had arrested two persons in connection with the alleged killing of a socialite, Oladoyinbo Sunday.

Sunday’s lifeless body was found in Ijapo Estate in Akure, the Ondo State capital, on December 10, 2024, by policemen.

In a statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, the suspects were arrested through intelligence gathering by the state command.

The PPRO said, “The SWAT team through intelligence-led policing apprehended one Atinuke Adeniyi aged 29 years who claimed she and the deceased were involved in a romantic affair and that on the day before the corpse was dumped, she and the deceased made out in a brothel in Ijapo, after which the deceased started convulsing and out of fear, she abandoned him and quietly left the room.

“The suspect led the police team to the brothel where one Adeojo Ilesanmi aged 50 years, the owner of the brothel, was arrested.  He confessed to having taken the corpse to the scene where it was found with claims that he was afraid when he realised the deceased died in his brothel.”

Odunlami said the probe was still in progress and the suspects would be charged in court after the investigation.
