The family of Kemi Arobieke, who was said to have died in the apartment of a former special assistant to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, Bode Olugbore, have rejected police claim that she was electrocuted by a standing fan. The Punch report quoted Ayoola Arobieke, the deceased’s younger brother as saying the claim was illogical and they would rather await the result of an autopsy to be conducted on her. He narrated how his sister had left Lagos for Oshogbo and hoping to be back the next Monday until the family received news of her death. Upon their arrival at Oshogbo, Ayoola said “the police prevented us from seeing her, but told us that she had been electrocuted by an electric fan, but it is unbelievable.” He admitted the deceased and Olugbore were in a relationship that spanned four years. He also claimed to know Olugbore told the deceased he had been separated from his wife, who bore him three children.
The police have taken in Olugbore, while investigation in the matter is believed to be continuing. Quoted by the reports, Semiu Okanlawon, Aregbesola’s aide on media and communication, said circumstances of the death of the 29-year-old university graduate is “a police matter” and declining further comment on it.
