The police has started investigation on the death of Lagos-based trado-medical expert, Alhaji Yusuf Fatai, popularly called Oko Oloyun.
He was murdered on Thursday 23 January 2020 around 4:30pm on the road while travelling to Iseyin, Oyo State. Report has it that he was attacked by some hoodlums along Eruwa-Igbo Ora highway in the Ibarapa Central area of Oyo State.

In a statement made available to the public on Friday, the state Police Command disclosed that two police escorts attached to the late businessman and some members of his staff are in custody for interrogation.
The interrogation, according to the police, followed a tip off on an alleged fraud perpetrated recently in Oko Oloyun’s Lagos office.
“Some of the staff and his two (2) Police escorts are being questioned by a team of crack detectives from the homicide section of State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID Iyaganku, Ibadan with a view to finding and apprehending the fleeing suspects who wrecked the heinous act,” Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, Gbenga Fadeyi said.

“In addition to other possible motives, a plausible nexus is therefore being suspected between the fire incident and the attack on the deceased,” Fadeyi explained.

The deceased has been laid to rest in his home town. May Allah forgive his sins.
