“On Monday (December 25), I was called that those who picked up the phone took the police to where they picked it from, but they discovered that a corpse was buried along the roadside by health workers from Odogbolu Local Government Area, which was said to be his corpse, and that I have two options of either exhuming his body or leaving it where it was buried.
“I met with the local government chairman on the process of exhuming his body from where he was buried and presented his picture. There were disparities in the pictures I presented and the one presented by the LG chair, who said they learnt it was a case of a hit-and-run accident. The disparities made me suspect foul play, but I decided to let it go and accept the fate that my son was dead.”

He further narrated that the tragedy around Oluwatosin's death took another shape following an eyewitness account that his son was hit by an official of the Ago motor park while preaching in the environment.
