Late Miss Khadijat Oluboyo’s boyfriend of four years, Saidu-Shakiru Adeyemi, has disclosed how the deceased was allegedly killed.
He made the confession as he was paraded alongside other suspects on Wednesday, by Ondo state police command headquarters in Akure.
When newsmen spoke with Adeyemi during the parade, he denied ever killing Khadijat, but instead confessed she brought in two boys who killed her.
Recall that the decomposing corpse of 20-year-old final year student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, was found dead at Adeyemi’ house in Akure on Sunday.
The prime suspect said he had dated the deceased for four years before they parted ways in 2015, and that they only reconciled after the last Ramadan celebration.
He said he completed his National Youth Service in 2017 and was hoping to get a job using his late girlfriend’s father’s connection and as such, had no reason to kill her.
Adeyemi told newsmen that Khadijat came to his house on Thursday because of her project which he was helping her to do.
Stating they had finished chapter one and her supervisor had already approved it and she came for final correction so that she could move to chapter two.
But on Friday, the suspect left for Lagos to buy some wrist watches and forgot to drop her project with him.
Alleging: “Meanwhile, on Saturday she snapped both the soft and hard copy of her project to me on my WhatsApp for correction.
“On Monday, I believed she was already in school when she sent me a text message to send her N2,000. But I was able to send only N1,000.
“So, I was surprised when I heard a knock on my door later in the day and she entered my room.
“She later told me that she wanted to receive some visitors in my place, and few minutes later she brought two boys in. I was not surprised because that was not her first time to bring someone to my house.
“Later when they came in, we exchanged greetings and I left them in the room. But after 30 minutes, one of the boys called me in and I discovered he held a small gun in his hand while the other boy was on her, naked.
“And I heard Khadijat saying ‘I will not tell anybody’. The boy strangled her to death and threatened me not to shout or else they would kill me.
“They later forced me to find a digger with which they dug the ground in my room and buried her
“They are the ones that killed and buried her. I could not shout after they left because of the implication of what has happened, for I was sure nobody would believe me.
“On the fifth day, I was not comfortable anymore, so I exhumed her body and confided in my younger brother who advised that we should inform our father about the development.
“It was my father who informed the police before I was arrested,” Adeyemi said.
However, the Police Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Femi Joseph, said the suspect would soon be charged to court after an investigation into the matter had been completed.
