Ogun killings: Body of EX-CBN worker’s son found in River




Three days after a former employee of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Kehinde Fatinoye, and his wife, Bukola, who was an employee of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, were allegedly assassinated in Ogun State, the corpse of the couple’s son, Oreoluwa Fatinoye, has been recovered from Ogun river.

Oreoluwa’s parents were killed by yet-to-be-identified assassins in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on New Year Day.

It was gathered that Oreoluwa was taken away from home after his parents were killed and burnt and was reportedly thrown into a river along the Adigbe-Obada road in Abeokuta, the state capital.

Divers were hired by the state Police Command to search for the body of Oreoluwa.

His body was discovered by fishermen on Tuesday floating on the river.

It was observed that both hands of Oreoluwa were tied with rope to the back.

Speaking on the discovery, a fisherman, Idowu Taiwo, said he discovered the body floating on the river while he was preparing for the day’s work.

He said, “On Monday, we heard that someone was thrown into this river, but this morning while we were preparing for work, the police approached us and pleaded with us to inform them any time we discover the body.

“But, this morning, around 7.30, we discovered the body while we were checking on our equipment in the river. I called someone to help us get the number of the PPRO to tell him that we have discovered the body.

“Not long after, the police came and we showed them the body after we had brought it to the river bank.”

The police was said to have taken the body away.
