Counsel to detained Executive Director of African Network for Economics and Environmental Justice, ANEEJ, Rev. David Ugolor, who is being held in Police detention in connection with the murder of the late Principal Private Secretary to Governor Adams Oshiomhole, Comrade Olaitan Oyerinde, yesterday petitioned the Inspector General of Police, alleging that his client was being “framed up in the case.”
In the petition by Mr. Afolabi Olayiwola, the suspect’s wife, Mrs. Ngozi Ugolor, explained that the late Olaitan Oyerinde and her husband were bosom friends, narrating that immediately after he was shot, his wife rushed to Ugolor’s apartment to inform the family of the shooting of her husband.
She explained that following the information, her husband immediately rushed Oyerinde to hospital for medical attention where he had issues with medical personnel of the hospital who could not respond to treatment of Oyerinde on time.
“That when our client agreed to identification parade with the suspect that is currently being investigated, one of them accused Rev. David Ugolor by pointing at him. He added that the suspect who claimed Rev. Ugolor gave him the job to do, agreed that he did not know the vehicle Ugolor was using, even as he did not know his house and office, adding that he only used to see him on television.
