The Oyo State Police Command says the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) is handling the investigation of the decomposing body of a landlord found in his bedroom at Awotan, Apete area of Ibadan.

It would be recalled that the skeleton of the landlord, identified as Aderemi Abiola, was discovered in his bedroom by some residents of Awotan Community after a long period of searching for him.

The decayed body of the deceased was found glued to his beddings lying upward.

It was gathered from the residents of the community that the deceased was last seen four years ago.

Speaking on the incident, the Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Adewale Osifeso, said the state Commissioner of Police, Adebowale William, has deployed a team of crime and forensic detectives to the residence of the deceased.

Osifeso stated that the Commissioner of Police has also directed the immediate transfer of the case to the command’s apex investigation body, the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), to ascertain the cause of his death.

He said the scene of the incident has since been cordoned in the interest of public health and safety to enable the detective to carry out a comprehensive investigation aimed at identifying the possible cause of the death.

Osifeso noted that the command became aware of the incident when representatives from the Landlord Association of Idi-Orogbo, Adeosun, Life Forte Area, Awotan, Apete in Ibadan reported the case to the command.

The police spokesperson said preliminary findings from residents of the community and the deceased driver’s licence found in his wallet revealed the identity of the deceased as Aderemi Abiola.

He stated that the investigation revealed that the deceased was last seen around 2018, four years ago, which was corroborated by his family members.

Osifeso added that the Commissioner of Police called on well-meaning members of the public for assistance regarding the provision of useful information about the incident.

He said that case would be actively monitored, assuring the public that detailed updates would be provided accordingly.
