Timothy Adegoke’s murder: ‘Find his killers, restore Nigerians’ confidence in police’

The family of the murdered student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Timothy Adegoke Oludare, has asked the Nigerian Police to use the unravelling of the true killers of their son to restore the confidence of Nigerians in its ability to resolve murder cases. The family also urged the family of the prime suspect in the case, Ramon Adedoyin, to stop insulting the sensibility of Nigerians with their concerns for the rights of their family members. Timothy’s family in a statement said the anniversary of the dastardly killing of the late Minister of Justice, Chief James Ajibola Ige, comes to mind when issues of unresolved murders are discussed. The statement jointly signed by the lawyer to the family, Naim Adekilekun and the elder brother of the deceased, Gbade Adegoke, said: “Chief Bola Ige was killed on December 23, 2001. Today, it is exactly 20 years after the killing in his Bodija, Ibadan, residence. “Sadly, 20 years later, the question still remains, who killed Bola Ige? To say the least, this is a sad commentary on the ability of Nigeria to protect her citizens. “This should be the major source of worry to the police and the Nigerian justice system. In the last 20 years, all we have heard were plans to reopen the murder and bring the killers to book. It is disheartening that Nigeria is still looking for the killers.”
