Murder of OAU master’s student: Hilton hotel closed


Activities at the Hilton in Ile-Ife, Osun state were halted on Thursday as the relaxation center is now closed following the death of a master’s student at Obafemi Awolowo University (OUA), Timothy Adegoke.

The hotel was completely deserted by its employees at the time of filing this report and all the activities that usually take place there have been paralyzed.

It is not known who gave the directive to close the hotel, but the security guard has just told Tribune Online that “it has been closed until further notice”.

Meanwhile, students from Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife are reportedly warming up to storm the hotel in protest of the death.

One of the students who simply identified himself as Adeoti said: “The case should not be left under the rug by the authorities concerned. “

He further said that the students will go all the way to ensure justice prevails in the case.

It will be recalled that the president of the Hilton Hotel and Resort, Dr. Ramon Adedoyin, was arrested Wednesday by the Osun State Police Command in connection with the death of the student.

State Police Commissioner CP Olawale Olokode, who disclosed this through command spokesperson SP Yemisi Opalola, said Adedoyin was arrested on November 15, 2021.

According to the police chief, the suspect is currently in police custody, undergoing questioning in connection with the case pending the hospital autopsy report.

However, he thanked members of the public, especially the bereaved family, students and the OAU leadership for their patience in allowing the police to further investigate the matter.

He further reiterated the commitment of the State Police Command to ensure that justice is done and ensured that, regardless of the personality of the person involved in the case or their high or low rank in society, if she were found guilty, she would be brought to justice.

He assured that updates on the case will be made public as the event unfolds.
