News of the killing of the owner of Oko Oloyun Herbal Medicine Manufacturer, Fatal Yusuff aka Oko Oloyun on his way to Iseyin in Oyo State from Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Thursday January 23, 2020 was widely condemned by members of the public.
The death of the successful herbal medicine practitioner was regarded as a bad way for him to go after toiling for years to proffer traditional solutions to numerous sicknesses afflicting Nigerians.
This must have prompted the law enforcement agents to go to work to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of the celebrated philanthropist.
One of the theories men of the police force were said to be working on is the discovery that was made about one Abbey, a lady that is said to be next in line to Oko Oloyun.
Reports had it that N35 Million was found in the bank account of the alleged jobless husband of the woman to the surprise of the law enforcement agents.
There was an allegation that it was the document in the woman’s office that got burnt hours before Oko Oloyun was assassinated.
Sources revealed that the late Oko Oloyun had ordered investigations into some alleged fraudulent activities in his office before the fire incident and his assassination.
What surprises watchers of events was that the two unfortunate incidents happened in quick succession, thus leading to suspicions that the incidents were results of the investigations he ordered into the massive fraud in the company.
Abbey, we were told got into the company as an ordinary site worker, but that Oko Oloyun converted her role to office job.
The woman and other suspects are being held at Iyaganku Police Station, Ibadan, Oyo State.
She works at the head office in Lagos and in-charge of the distribution of Oko Oloyun range of herbal products.
Oko Oloyun was reportedly travelling from Lagos to Iseyin in Oyo State, where he had earlier commissioned a big building for business before he was gunned down in his car.
The police said he was hit by a bullet after a suspected assassin shot at his vehicle about 4:30 pm on Eruwa-Igbo-Ora road on Thursday 23rd January, 2020.
Mr Yusuff was then rushed to the nearest hospital for medical attention immediately but did not survive.
Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Oyo State Police Command, Olugbenga Fadeyi, confirmed the incident.
The demand of the family members of the late Oko Oloyun and members of the public is that the police should investigate Abbey and her husband and do everything within their means to ensure that the late herbal medicine practitioner did not die in vain.
