A woman planning for her wedding in three months' time ended up dead in her man friend's apartment.
The mysterious death of a 29-year-old lady, Kemi Arobieke, who reportedly died while on a visit to a former Senior Special Assistant to Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola, Bode Olugbore, is certainly raising serious dust as the family of the deceased are up in arms, demanding that the man tell them how she died.
Reports have it that the lady who was an event planner in Lagos, was deep in the midst of planning for her wedding in November but lost her life while visiting her man friend on Saturday, August 8, after she left Lagos to Osogbo, the Osun State capital on Thursday to spend the weekend with Olugbore.
Her family however got a call on Sunday, August 9, that Arobieke had died in an accident but by the time they got to Osogbo, they realised that she was actually electrocuted in her lover boy's apartment and her corpse had been deposited in a mortuary.
But the family are crying foul, believing that their sister must have been murdered because there were tell-tale signs that could lend credence to that assertion.
A relative of deceased, however said the family would not take the explanation that she was electrocuted as being bandied by the police, believing that she must have been murdered.
The family source also said that the late Kemi had known Olugbore for about four years, but the family initially did not know about their relationship.
“My sister travelled to Osogbo and she was supposed to return to Lagos on Saturday, but we got a call from the police that she was involved in an accident and it was very serious.
When we got to Osogbo, the police prevented us from seeing her, but told us that she had been electrocuted by an electric fan, but it is unbelievable.
We were made to understand that she was electrocuted in the apartment by a standing fan. That is very hard for me to understand. The police showed us the fan, and it seemed to be working fine.
It was not burnt. The socket was not burnt. So, it is suspicious that she was electrocuted. The current in a fan is not enough to kill except one has direct contact with a live wire. The marks on her body suggested something contrary.
Right now, everyone is waiting for answers from the autopsy. We know that the man has been arrested by the police.”
Another family member took to social media to post this:
"I write this with a heavy heart the demise of my immediate younger sister, Kemi Arobieke who was murdered. On Thursday 6th of August, my sister left for Osogbo to see Bode Olugbore, the State Special Adviser to Governor Aregbesola, without telling anyone only for us to get a call on the 8th, Saturday, that she had died in an accident in Osogbo.
The police asked us to come immediately that it was tragic. We got to Osogbo in the night but was told to wait for the DPO the next morning. We got the shocker on Sunday that my beloved sister was electrocuted. We went to the mortuary where we discovered that she was not electrocuted but murdered.
Autopsy and Postmortem was to be carried out at LAUTECH. My fear is that the result has been tampered with in their favor. Bode Olugbore who is married with 3 kids, has not told us the family what really happened to our sister, who was planning her wedding in November."
