Wale Olokode, the Osun State Commissioner, has declared that Raheem Adedoyin, son of Rahmon Adedoyin, the owner of Hilton Hotel and Resorts, is a suspect in the ongoing investigation to unravel the death of Timothy Adegoke.

While speaking on Frank Talk, a programme on Rave FM, Osogbo, Osun State, on Monday, the Commissioner said Roheem, the Managing Director of the hotel, supervised the burial of the deceased in a shallow grave.

He also said the hurried evacuation and burial of late Timothy was done without informing the police.

“During interrogation, one of the suspects confessed that Roheem, the Managing Director of the hotel who is also the son of Rahmon Adedoyin, organised for the corpse to be taken to the bush,” he said.

“The staff members did not inform the police. It was through the report of a missing person that the anti-kidnapping team was able to discover and ‘trace and trace’ Adegoke to that hotel. The trace was then extended to where the corpse was eventually found.”
