The Nigeria Police Force has given another version of the story of the death a Deputy Commissioner of Police serving with the Force Criminal and Investigation Department, Alagbon, Lagos State, Gbolahan Oyedemi.

Recall that scores of media outlets had reported that the police boss on Monday reportedly committed suicide in his private house in his hometown, Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

It was gathered that Oyedemi was the Aide de Camp to the late former Governor of the state, Adebayo Alao-Akala, during his 11-month tenure as defacto governor in 2006.

 

 

But the police would not buy that theory. Spokesperson of Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID), ASP Aminat Mayegun, was this afternoon quoted by Daily Trust as saying that they were going to investigate his death, adding that the former Personal Assistant to late DIG Israel Ajao and late CP Young Arebamen could not have taken his life as being rumoured.

The paper also quoted a police source at FCID as disclosing that some persons would be invited for questioning over the incident. Among them are those who first saw his corpse.

“This is to ascertain where the deceased went to before his death, who was with him at the time he entered his room, including who had his two handsets as of the time of death,” the source said.

However, insider sources said the body of the 50-year-old Police officer was reportedly found alone in his mansion.

A United Nations medalist in Law Enforcement and Administration, Olugbemi had served as the ADC to the late Oyo State Governor, Alao Akala.

He was Divisional Police Officer at Ilupeju, Area Commander at Ajah in Lagos.

He had received training in Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism in Operations, had received several awards in Nigeria and abroad, and he had been celebrated in the media for several good deeds in the course of his career.

Olugbemi was a graduate of the University of Lagos and the Olabisi Onabanjo University respectively.
