The decomposing body of Adenike Oluboyo, daughter of the immediate past Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Lasisi Oluboyo, was on Sunday found dead in her boyfriend’s house in Akure.
Miss Oluboyo was a final year student of educational management at the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State.
Her boyfriend, Adeyemi Alao, popularly known as QS, is an alleged member of a cyber-crime gang.
Oluboyo, according to eyewitnesses, was killed in a suspected ritual involving money.
Ondo police spokesman, Femi Joseph, who confirmed the story to the News Agency of Nigeria, described the incident as saddening and very unfortunate.
“It is not a rumour but it is a fact that the young lady was found dead this morning and it is saddening and very unfortunate.
“We are on it and trying to get some facts but the Commissioner of Police will brief the press about the details in another 48 hours,” Mr Joseph said.
Alao is a member of a gang who engaged in cyber-fraud, who are known as Yahoo boys.
