ADO-EKITI—THE Ekiti State Police Command, yesterday, said it has found the corpse of a middle aged man simply identified as Kola, who is the father of twins said to be missing, after a manhunt was put together for him two days ago.
Tragedy struck at 23, Temidire Street, Ajowa, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State on Saturday when Kola’s wife, Titilayo, a mother of four who delivered a set of twins the prvious night was found dead in her one-room apartment
Kola, who was with his wife throughout the night, just disappeared with the set of twins after ostensibly killing their mother.
This development made their neighbours to raise an alarm, while the police subsequently swung into action and pledged to get to the root of the matter.
According to the statement by the Public Relations Officer of the state Command, Mr. Victor Babayemi, in Ado-Ekiti, yesterday, Kola’s corpse was dumped by unknown persons in a canal at Oke Ila area of the state capital.
The statement further added that the police are yet to trace the whereabouts of the missing set of twins at press time.
According to the statement, “Kola was found murdered and dumped in a canal at Oke Ila in Ado-Ekiti but the twins are yet to be found. Investigation is in top gear to find the twins as well as the killers of the couple.”
Vanguard, however, gathered that Kola may have been killed by those he sold the set of twins to so that nobody would be able to link them with the heinous crime.
Babayemi, however, assured that no stone would be left unturned to get to the root of the matter
