The corpse of the son of the couple assassinated on New Year’s day in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Oreoluwa Fatinoye has been recovered from a river.

There had been claims that Oreoluwa was abducted alongside their maid from his parent’s residence in Ogun State after his father and mother were killed.

Recall that gunmen in the early hours of the 1st of January had invaded their residence located within the Ibara Government Reservation Area (GRA), Abeokuta and murdered Oreoluwa’s parents, Kehinde and Bukola Fatinoye.

Following the incident, there were speculations that Oreoluwa had been murdered and thrown into a river along the Adigbe – Obada road in Abeokuta after he was kidnapped by the gunmen who killed his parents.

Oreoluwa’s father before he was murdered was an ex-CBN staff while his mother was a worker at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB).
