Caustic and angry reactions have greeted news of the brutal rape and murder of a female corp member in Ibadan, Omolola Abogunrin. Nigerians commenting on social media think a lot of people from Omolola’s fiance to the fiance’s ex, should be properly grilled by police.
So, “whodunit”, is the question on the lips of those who want the killers found immediately.
Omolola who was serving in Ogun State was raped and strangled to death inside the premises of the National Cereal Research Institute, Moor Plantation, Apata area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The murder took place on Sunday October 4, 2015, just 13 days to her wedding.
Sympathizers confirmed rape and strangulation through the plenty of semen found on her private part and nail wounds around her neck respectively on discovering her corpse. Residents said she was waylaid while returning from church and heading to her lover’s house to spend some time with a plan to return home afterwards.
Her lover, Olusola Babalola, has since been arrested and detained, with police saying the action was part of the inverstigation.
See how Nigerians commenting on social media want police to handle the investigation:
They set her up..her fiancee,former boyfriends,even girl friends should be investigated and put through d lie detector test if we have any.
Akuebuka Victor So sad…investigation from Nigeria police is useless…this is inside hit job…it is a hit….family members,ex boyfriends,immediate ex girlfriend(s) of her fiancee,her fiance included must be properly investigated.RIP
Bulama Bukar Buttu What a tragedy! Your bride to be f**(raped) and murdered and you’re arrested!
They assume the fiancee is culpable!
It might be possible oo might be the man is financially not ready for the wedding and wanted to avoid the ignominy!Maxwell Emmanuel Uduafemhe So a man who has fixed a date to marry her, would turn round and murder her? Silly police.
Niyi Fasanmi NOBODY IS USING THE WORD…MISOGYNY! THERE ARE MISOGYNISTS [haters of women] IN THIS COUNTRY…you raped and killed her!!! WHY?
Justice Forall Since there was a rape it was a revenge & dat she was murdered after means it was done by someone she knows so well
Idorenyin Andem Everybody is a suspect here. She may even be the cause of this. The fiance may be innocent, just temper justice with mercy please. Trust no one.
Bashir Sakiru Ladies! Beware of company you keep, beware of multiple partners, beware of reckless, insincere but sinful relationship, undue sex nd illegal physical contact. Not because of anything but for your own sake this is not new to the society but d blind nd deaf hear you ladies turn to d various costly advises.
Augustine Onoro Very sad story. Her spirit will torment those who did this to death. May her soul rest in peace.
