A Superintendent of Police attached to the Ekiti State Police Command, Mr. Idowu Taiwo, has been kidnapped and found murdered in a car in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.
The late Taiwo, said to be the Officer in Charge of Finance or OC MSS in the force’s parlance, was said to have been found dead the morning after he was allegedly kidnapped from where he was at the Ologede area of Ado Ekiti on Sunday night.
Sources told DAILY POST that he was at a pub just by the police station at Ologede when the yet-to-be identified men arrived at the place and took him away.
The sources added that Taiwo was not found until the next morning but he had already been murdered, left in a car handcuffed.
The Public Relations Officer of the Ekiti police command, Mr. Alberto Adeyemi, confirmed the incident in a telephone interview with DAILY POST, saying “it is true” and also confirmed that he was ‘OC MSS.’
Adeyemi gave his name as SP Idowu Taiwo and explained that, “he was taken away from where he was at Ologede area and was later found dead at Ajebamidele area of the same Ajilosun.”
The PPRO added that, “after he was murdered, they abandoned his body in a car in Ajebamidele area of the town.”
Adeyemi said, “investigations have begun to arrest the perpetrators, but no arrests yet.”
