Bola Adegoke, the widow of Timothy Adegoke, the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) MBA student found dead in Osun State, has said her late husband was planning to relocate his family abroad over rising insecurity in Nigeria.

Bola said the untimely death of Timothy prevented him from fulfilling his dreams.

“He said he would relocate me, his children and his parents abroad while he would remain in the country,” she told FIJ. “His parents sent him to school from the proceeds of farming, and he stopped them from going to the farm.”

The mother of three children suggested that Rahmon Adedoyin, the owner of the hotel where Timothy was killed and prime suspect in the murder, could have been transferred to the police headquarters in Abuja because he was given preferential treatment in the Osun State Police Command’s custody.


She also accused Adedoyin of killing innocent souls, including her late husband, for fortune rituals.

“I learned he kills seven people every year. Someone told me how he killed two sons of the same parents,” she said. “My husband had always used the hotel. So, they had been monitoring him. They were 16 in the hotel that night, and he was the only one they killed. I heard he (Adedoyin) only uses people with good luck. We attend a white-garment church, and we had been told my husband had good luck.”

She noted that getting justice for her husband could prevent such incidents in the future, especially at a time the country is faced with insecurity of all kinds.

“Although we have accepted our cross, I want justice, ” she said. “People must use hotels. If you travelled down to this place, you would still want to be lodged in a hotel in the evening. Ensuring justice in this case will discourage those who have plans to kill other people right now.”

However, Adedoyin had denied claims that he is a ritual killer. In a leaked audiotape obtained by FIJ, he said he is a devoted Muslim who worked for his money.

“I, Dr. Abdulramhan Adegoke Atobatele Adedoyin, am neither a murderer nor a ritualist who kidnaps people for money ritual,” he said. “God has given me my money since I was about 26 years old, and till now that I am about 65. I’ve never killed a human being; I’m a true Muslim.”
