You may have read news of how TIMOTHY ADEGOKE OLUDARE, a Chattered Accountant and Director of Finance in one Multinational Company in Abuja who traveled down to Ile-Ife to write his master’s degree exam but was murdered in his hotel room.
Report indicates that Timothy traveled to Ife from Abuja on Friday 5th November to write his exams scheduled on 6th & 7th. He had hoped to return to his family on Sunday evening or Monday.
As a matter of obligation whenever Timothy travels on weekends for his master program, he usually lodged at a hotel named Hilton and Resort Hotel in Ife, one of the prominent hotels in town. But this time, he was declared missing by his wife and family when they tried and couldn’t reach him for 2 days.
A team of anti-kidnapping police/soldiers from Osogbo later established that he lodged at Hilton & Resort Hotel, where the hotel management murdered him at midnight. The accused persons had murdered and wrapped his body with hotel blanket and bed sheet before burying him at the upper side of the hotel in Ife (described as the Dustbin arena). Reliable sources said the location has served as the burial ground for various victims most of whose body parts were harvested–just like Timothy;s.
They demanded for his national Id Card from his family, but his wife was able to provide the earlier hotel receipt of Hilton where he used to lodge whenever he came for his weekend program.
They visited the hotel, but the lady receptionist denied admitting the young guy into the hotel, but a transfer payment was traced to her account confirming that Timothy paid for 2 nights in the hotel and receipt was issued to him.
The manifest and receipt of the hotel was doctored with a page number receipt for Timothy removed from the booklet.
The lady receptionist supposed to close at 12 noon but called another staff to take over duty at 8am, that she had emergency call at Ejigbo. Her phone and Timothy’s phone was tracked to Ejigbo and eventually picked up by the police. She then pleaded with the police that she was ready to confess everything that happened
It was at her instance that all principal actors were mentioned and apprehended, including the Chairman of the hotel.
Contrary to earlier report that an herbalist from Ejigbo was involved. No please. The Manager “4”, who is also one of the principal staffs of the hotel is an Alfa/ritualist and probably been used by the Chairman to carry out their evil plans. He had also confessed and in police net with 6 others
The lady also confessed that their Chairman Prince Ramon Adedoyin who happened to own Oduduwa University and Ife Polytechnic had hand in the brutal ritual killing and he has been arrested and detained.
The body of the man was exhumed and taken to Ife teaching hospital for proper examination.
Investigation is ongoing to establish more fact about the hotel and the University and Ife Polytechnic.
