Serving Deputy Police Commissioner Odeyemi Kills Self In His Ogbomosho Home (pic)

A Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) serving under the Lagos State Police Command, identified as Gbolahan Oyedemi, has been discovered dead in his private residence in Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

DCP Oyedemi served as the Aide de Camp (ADC) to a former governor of Oyo State, Late Adebayo Alao Akala, in 2006.

The deceased, who hailed from Ogbomoso, had travelled to the town to celebrate Easter over the weekend.

Sources familiar with the situation reported that his body was found hanging in his house on Monday, suggesting a possible case of suicide.

“He came with his aides, and we heard that he discharged them to go and celebrate Easter with their respective families only to hear that he committed suicide yesterday (Monday),” a former aide to late Governor Akala, who had served at the same time with DCP Oyedemi said.

“He was formerly staying with his mother in a house he built for her around the Randa area of Ogbomoso.

“Later, he built another house located at Petros Academy Street, Federal Lowcost area, and he thereafter moved to the new building where he was staying alone whenever he came around. He was unmarried,” the source added.

Authorities from the Lagos and Oyo State Police Commands have not issued any statements regarding the incident.
