The police in the state of Osun has arrested a former Senior Special Assistant to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, Mr. Bode Olugbore, following the death of a 29-year-old woman, Kemi Arobieke.
The Punch reports that the deceased, whom the family claimed to have been the ex-aide’s lover, was found dead in the accused’s apartment on August 8 2015.
The deceased was said to have traveled on August 6 from Lagos to Osogbo on a visit to Olugbore’s residence but never returned.
It was gathered that Kemi’s family, however, got a call on Sunday that the lady had been electrocuted in the ex-SSA’s abode, and her corpse had been deposited in a mortuary. The brother of the deceased, Mr. Ayoola, confirmed the sad incidence, noting that the family awaits the outcome of the autopsy before pressing charges. The family lawyer further added that the autopsy result was in the hands of the police, as the family awaits formal invitation on the case.
Speaking with the news reporter, the Osun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Folashade Odoro, confirmed the arrest: “I don’t know about who is involved, but the suspect has been arrested by the police. Investigation is also ongoing on the matter. When things like this happen, the first suspect is the owner of the apartment. So, he was arrested immediately.”
