The Police in Osun state have arrested a graduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Babaseun Daramola, and an unnamed lady, said to be his girlfriend, over the murder of a lecturer, Dr. Deji Adejobi. Daramola, who graduated from the department of building, Faculty of Environmental Design and Management, O.A.U, became the prime suspect due to an altercation he had with Adejobi last Friday over a lady.
Nigeria Newsbreak source said Daramola was in the university’s staff club last Friday, where he warned Adejobi to stay away from his girlfriend. Our investigation further revealed Daramola’s father as a retired staffer in the university’s Arts faculty and his mother, a commandant of the National Civil Defence Corps, NCDC.
Adejobi was murdered by some unknown men last Tuesday at his residence at Modomo Street, off The Don bus stop, located few meters from the old Ile-Ife tollgate.
