The lifeless body of the Deputy Commissioner of Police at the Lagos State Police Command, DCP Gbolahan Oyedemi was found on Tuesday morning in his private home in Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

The deceased was the aide de Camp (ADC) to a former governor of Oyo State, late Adebayo Alao Akala, in 2006 and a native of Ogbomoso town of the state. 

It was learnt that he was in Ogbomoso for the Easter celebration last weekend from Lagos State before the incident.

Sources privy to the incident informed newsmen on Tuesday morning that 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, narrated.

“He was formerly staying with his mother in the same house he built for her around 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. He was unmarried,” another source stated.

The Oyo State Police Command spokesperson, Adewale Osifeso, did not pick up repeated calls made to him seeking his comments on the issue.
