The Assistant Inspector of Police, Zone 11, Osogbo, AIG Adeleye Oyebade has been petitioned over the death of the Founder of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Fagbemi, Concord area, Ilesa, Prophetess Sade Okeyemi.
The petition, which was copied to Osun State Coordinator, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Osogbo called for investigation into the circumstances surrounding the untimely death of Prophetess Okeyemi.
According to the petition written by Mr. Adetuyi S., the sad incidence occurred on April 23, 2019 when one Oluwole Babayemi went to meet the Prophetess in her church and after an hour of discussion, drove her to an unknown destination in Ijebu Jesa, headquarters of Oriade Local Government Area of Osun State.
On investigation, it was discovered that Babayemi took her to an undisclosed hotel where she developed constipation as an asthma patient who failed to carry her inhaler along with her.
Unknown to Babayemi that Sade was an asthmatic patient, he drove her to General Hospital in Ilesa in his Benz 190 Salon csr with registration number JJS 999 AA where she was confirmed dead after they were thought to have satisfied themselves with rounds of sex.
On sensing trouble, Babayemi quickly called the husband of the deceased, Mr. Okeyemi and told him that his wife gave up the ghost as a result of heart failure having deposited her remains in the mortuary.
Thereafter, the innocent husband who did not suspect foul play demanded for the release of the remains of his wife only to bury her same day.
Crisis however, brewed up when members of the.church of the late Prophetess took it upon themselves to unravel the circumstances surrounding the untimely death of their spiritual leader.
According to the source who will not like to be mentioned, Babayemi is known to some people as a ritualist who had been involved in questionable matters in the past.
It was such suspicion that led to the petition written to the Assistant Inspector of Police Zone 11 by Adetuyi S. who called on the Police Chief to investigate the death of the wife of his friend.
Adetuyi, in the petition wanted the Police to inquire the situation that led to the speedy burial of the deceased without obtaining Police report nor was autopsy performed to ascertain the cause of her death.
Okeyemi, an iron welder in Ilesa, according to the petition decided to bury the remains of his wife due to ignorance and for the fear of being hunted by those who killed his wife, knowing fully well that the cause of the death of his wife was not natural.
Further investigations however have revealed that Babayemi has since been cooling his nerves in the net of Police at zone 11, Osogbo where he is being held for necessary legal actions after investigation.
The people of Ijebu Jesa however appeal to the Police to ensure that the unjust does not go unpunished.
