OAU Student’s Murder: Adedoyin’s Leaked Audio Was Recorded Before Arrest - Police 

The family of the owner of Hilton Hotel, Ile-Ife, Osun State, has insisted that Chief Ramon Adedoyin is not a ritualist.

Naija News reports that the popular businessman was fingered in the death of a Master’s student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Mr. Timothy Adegoke.

Chief Adedoyin, who is currently in police custody, has maintained his innocence in the controversial issue.

In a statement to newsmen, the family’s lawyer, Abiodun Williams, warned social media users against insulting the hotelier, stressing that stories should be verified by bloggers.

Part of the statement read, “Like every other Nigerian and a parent for that matter, Chief Adedoyin is saddened by the death of the young man.

“And for the avoidance of any doubt, Chief Adedoyin is not only an educationist and hotelier but also an established business man with investments in different other sectors of the economy.

“So, he does not involve in the day-to-day running of the hotel and indeed his other business establishments as such roles are left in the hands of hundreds of his employees.

“We therefore wish to say, once again, that Chief Adedoyin and members of his family are not ritualists and will never condescend to such devlish act.

“So, we call on the media, especially the bloggers to verify information before going to press and also allow the police to conduct proper investigations on the death of the young man and bring anyone culpable to justice.

“We also urge the police on their part not to be swayed by the social media rumours being spread around on the matter rather to remain professionals in their investigations even as we wish to express our sincere condolences and sympathy to the Adegoke’s family while we pray God to comfort them.”
