Two dead bodies in CMD's office
As contained in Okasanmi's statement, officers had to force open the door to Adebowale's office and discovered the decaying remains of a lady buried in a grave made of tiles.
The statement said:
"One look at the office shows a suspicious sight of floor tiles, which were freshly cemented. Surprisingly the tiles were broken and it was a horrible sight that welcomed the detectives: behold, lying inside the shallow grave is the decomposing dead body of one unidentified female."
But this was not all as another dead body was found in a waste bin inside the same office.
"Further search of the office led to the opening of one dustbin where another body of one woman later identified as the earlier reported missing Nofisat Halidu identified by her husband, Halidu and some members of the community present at the scene of the search."
Even more, the police said detectives recovered items from the ex-CMD's office among which are two telephone handsets found in one of the handbags of the deceased, one female wig, one veil, and one female underwear.
