DCP Oyedemi Found Dead In Ogbomosho Private Home


April 2, (THEWILL)- A Deputy Commissioner of Police serving under the Lagos State Police Command, DCP Gbolahan Oyedemi, has been found dead in his private home in Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

THEWILL reports that DCP Oyedemi previously served as the Aide de Camp (ADC) to a former governor of Oyo State, Late Adebayo Alao Akala, in 2006.

The deceased, a native of Ogbomoso, had visited the town for the Easter celebration last weekend from Lagos before the incident.


A source familiar with the news of his death said his body was found hanging in the house on Monday, suggesting he probably committed suicide.

“He came with his aides and we heard that he discharged them to go and celebrate Easter with their respective families only to hear that he committed suicide yesterday (Monday),” a former aide to late Governor Akala, who had served at the same time with DCP Oyedemi, told our correspondent.

“He was formerly staying with his mother in a house he built for her around the Randa area of Ogbomoso. Later he built another house located at Petros Academy Street, Federal Lowcost area and he thereafter moved to the new building where he was staying alone whenever he came around. He was unmarried,” the source stated.

Authorities of the Lagos and Oyo State Police Commands have not issued any statement on the sad incident as efforts to speak to the spokespersons of the Commands on the incident proved abortive.
