Police have recovered two decomposed bodies of ladies inside the office of the Chief Medical Director of a government hospital in Kwara State.

One of the carcasses of the decomposed female bodies was found buried underground inside his office, while the other was found inside a trash bin.

The suspected former Chief Medical Director of Kiama General Hospital, Kiama in Kaiama Local Government Area of Kwara State, Dr. Adio Adebowale now in Edo State has been invited by the state police command and is now facing prosecution in Kwara State.

Vanguard gathered that the suspect reportedly told the police during interrogation that the victim simply identified as Ifeoluwa was his girlfriend, and that he killed her and dumped her in a bush in Alapa in Asa LGA of Kwara State before it was later traced to his office.

The police, following a series of investigations, later led the suspect to his office in Kaima General Hospital, where they found the office tiles to be freshly done, they suspected foul play and removed the tiles.

The police investigation team and members of the community present were shocked to find the decomposed body of the CMD’s former girlfriend, Ifeoluwa, buried underground after the tiles were removed.

Other items recovered in the detained doctor’s office include two telephone handsets found in the handbag of one of the ladies, all found in the doctor’s drawer.

There were also two female handbags, a female wig, a veil and female pants found in the office.
