Saidu-Shakiru Adeyemi, boyfriend of Miss Khadijat Oluboyo, the murdered daughter of ex-Ondo Deputy Governor Lasisi Oluboyo, has denied having anything to do with her murder.
Khadijat was found dead at her boyfriend’s home in Akure, Ondo, on Sunday.
Adeyemi, who was paraded by the Ondo State Police Command over his alleged involvement in Khadijat’s demise, said he knew nothing about it.
“On Saturday she snapped both the soft and hard copy of her project to me on my whatsApp for correction,” Adeyemi said.
“On Monday, I believe 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.”
He added: “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,” he confessed.
