Police withdraws case against Oduduwa university owner over the death of an OAU masters student
The case against Rahmon Adedoyin, the proprietor of Hotels and Resorts in Ile-Ife, and six other people accused with the murder of Timothy Adegoke, a master’s student at Obafemi Awolowo University, has been dropped by the Nigerian police force.
In November 2021, Rahmon Adedoyin, who also owns Oduduwa University, was arrested in connection with the murder of Timothy, whose decayed corpse was discovered several days after his family reported him missing on November 7.
Timothy’s killing drew widespread attention when his corpse was discovered wrapped in a hotel sheet with his essential organs gone, implying that he was slain for ceremonial reasons.
The case had been in court, and according to fresh sources, the police requested that all proceedings in the murder case be halted until additional investigation. The cause for the withdrawal has yet to be determined.
