Pathologists from Osun State University Teaching Hospital have come up with their findings on what caused the death of Obafemi Awolowo University Postgraduate Student Timothy Adegoke’s who was found dead in a hotel.
A consultant pathologist, Dr Waheed Akanni Oluogun, said the postgraduate student of Obafemi Awolowo University died of severe hemorrhage, secondary to severe traumatic injury.
Inspector Sunday Oluokun, a police inspector who investigated the case in Abuja also revealed his findings at the resumed hearing of the matter at the Osun state high court in Osogbo
The Guardian reported that Dr. Oluogu said this when he appeared before an Osun state high court in Osogbo.
Adegoke, a postgraduate student of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), was allegedly murdered at Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Ile-Ife, where he lodged. The owner of the hotel, Dr Rahman Adedoyin and six of his workers are standing trial before the court in connection with the alleged murder of Adegoke.

Giving evidence to the court, Dr Oluogun said the deceased suffered disarticulation (separation of left elbow joint and left wrist joint) before his demise, because there was nothing of such on the right upper limb, which was completely covered with skin and some tissues.
He said when Adegoke’s corpse was exhumed from the dumping site, some parts were already decaying, adding that Olugbade Adegoke, a brother to the deceased got to identify him (Timothy) by his toes.
According to him, there were bloodstains on the duvet in which the deceased’s body was wrapped and buried. The pathologist disclosed that the blood-stained duvet was taken to the hospital for further analysis.
He also revealed that the deceased suffered fractures in some areas of his bones.
Inspector Sunday Oluokun, the officer who investigated the case when it was transferred to Abuja, said when his team visited the hotel, it was discovered that the CCTV cameras were removed from the second floor where Adegoke lodged and hidden in one of the manager’s offices.
Oluokun said Adedoyin’s son was tracked through one of his telephone lines to Abuja and was discovered to have stayed in a house which Adedoyin confirmed belongs to him. He said a white Hilux vehicle was found in the premises of the house, adding that vehicle was the one used to convey Adegoke’s body to the site where it was dumped.
The police officer said Adedoyin’s son was later trailed to Badagry road where his telephone line was switched-off. He said the blood-stained duvet was subjected to forensic analysis, adding that when the report was out, it was discovered that there was a typographical error on it as regards the date. However, Omosun could not tender the Hilux vehicle as evidence because it developed a mechanical fault when it was going to be brought to Osogbo from Abuja.
He therefore urged the court to give him time to bring the vehicle to the court. Justice Adepele Ojo gave the prosecution till Tuesday, March 22, to produce the vehicle and adjourned for continuation of hearing.
