Police parade former Kwara General Hospital CMD for multiple killings

Kwara State Police Command Monday, paraded the former Chief Medical Director of Government General hospital in Kaima area of the state Dr Abass Adio Adeyemi, over multiple killings of six  persons.

According to Vanguard, Police Commissioner, Mr Paul Odama while addressing the press at the police headquarters in Ilorin said the victims included Olanipekun Ifeoluwa Ibukun, Nafisat Halidu, Abubakar Mallam Abubakar, and three yet to be identified victims. 

The suspect, 36 was first unveiled in October 3,2022 through a press conference by the Command where the police accused him of killing the suspects and subsequently burying them in his office. 

The Police Commissioner who said that the Command has been investigating the case for the past five months during which the suspect was also arrested for another killing in Benin, Edo state said that angle of human harvesting and ring of other suspects involved in the matter would be investigated. 

He said: “On 3/7/2022, at about 2350hrs, one Muktar Opeyemi (m) reported at F Division, Ilorin, that on /25/6/2022, he noticed that one of his co-tenants by name Ifeoluwa (f), of the same address, and her vehicle, a Toyota Camry, were last seen within the compound on 24/6/2022, which was unusual. 

“While the investigation was ongoing on the missing lady, a case of culpable homicide was reported at Alapa Police Station to the effect that a lifeless body of a young, unknown lady was found in the bush beside the road with a violent mark of injury on her head and blood on her face.

“Investigation, however, revealed that the missing Olanipekun Ifeoluwa Ibukun which was reported missing at F Division was the same young lady killed and thrown into the bush at Alapa,” said the police commissioner. 

Odama also said  that, “Investigation into the case revealed that one Dr. Abass Adio Adeyemi was last seen with the deceased Ifeoluwa. The circumstances surrounding the missing Ifeoluwa at Tanke and her being found dead at Alapa necessitated heightened suspicion that the Doctor knew something about the missing lady. “

“While the command was searching for the Doctor, news filtered in that Edo State Police Command had arrested Dr Abbas Adio Adeyemi in connection with another case of killing.

“The command in an effort to get to the root of the serial murder case in Kwara state succeeded in getting him released to the command to help in the investigation.”

The suspect according  to the police Commissioner, ” confessed to have killed Ifeoluwa by hitting her with an object on the head and dumped the body at a bush in Alapa.”

“He also confessed to have earlier sedated and causing the kidnap and killing of one Abubakar Malam Abubakar ‘M’  and killing of one Nafisat Halidu ‘f’ a casual worker at General Hospital both in Kaiama and concealed her body in a trash-can, filled the trash-can with cement and kept inside a locked store in the General Hospital Kaiama with the key in his procession.” 

“He also confessed to the killing of one unknown lady buried inside the same general hospital store.  Both bodies were exhumed, recovered and deposited at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital Ilorin.

“He confessed further to having been lured into organ harvesting by a yet-to-be-identified syndicate.

 A discreet investigation is still in progress to unravel other killings perpetrated by the suspect and his syndicate.

“Adeyemi would soon be charged in court.” the police Commissioner said.

Responding, the suspect, Adeyemi however, denied all the allegations saying that the confessions were extracted from him under duress.

He said, “the police should go and conduct their investigation very well , I didn’t commit any murder and wasn’t responsible for the killings. 

“I’m not the only one with the key of the store  where the suspects were buried, not in my office. The store keeper went on  transfer and didn’t hand over the store key to me properly, besides I’m not the only officer holding the key, ” he explained.
