Alao Adeyemi, the alleged killer of former Ondo State deputy governor’s daughter, Khadijat Oluboyo, has told the police that two other accomplices were complicit in the crime.
Police in Ondo arrested Adeyemi after Khadijat’s decomposing body was found in his Abuja home on Sunday.
Adeyemi, according to the police, confessed to being an internet fraudster (Yahoo Boy), but denied any direct involvement in his ex-girlfriend’s death.
He explained that it was the two accomplices that killed and buried her, adding that the two fleeing suspects were brought to his house by the deceased.
“I only provided the digger that was used to dig the grave inside my room where the deceased was buried. But Khadijat was not killed for ritual purpose,” he is quoted as saying.
The state police spokesperson, Femi Joseph, said in a statement on Wednesday that the two other persons haven’t been identified yet.
“The command received an information that Adeyemi, 27, who was Khadijat’s boyfriend, had allegedly killed her and was about to dispose of her corpse,” Joseph said.
“The police immediately swooped on him and on close observation of his residence, it was discovered that the suspect had actually buried the girl, who had been missing for six days.
“He was actually planning to exhume the remains and finally dispose them of because, according to him, he was not comfortable with the stench coming from the decomposed body as it was not properly buried.”
Khadijat was, until her death, a 400-level student of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba, Akoko.
