The Deputy Commissioner of Police serving under the Lagos State Police Command, DCP Gbolahan Olugbemi, who was found dead in his private home in Ogbomoso, Oyo State, on Easter Monday, will be buried this Thursday.

Sources close to the family of the deceased told our correspondent that his remains will be committed to Mother Earth in Ogbomoso by 4pm this Thursday evening in accordance with Islamic rites.

“He will be buried this evening. Policemen have condoned off the area, and uninvited people have been warned to stay away while taking photographs or video recording with mobile phones has been prohibited,” a source said.

Since the controversial demise of the senior Police officer three days ago, both Lagos and Oyo State Police Commands have remained silent over the incident.

LEADERSHIP reports that the deceased, a native of Ogbomoso, had visited the town for Easter break last weekend from Lagos before the incident.

Credible sources told LEADERSHIP on Tuesday morning that his body was found hanging in the house on Monday afternoon, suggesting that he probably committed suicide.

“He came with his aides and we heard that he discharged them to go and celebrate Easter with their respective families only to hear that he committed suicide yesterday (Monday),” a former aide to late Governor Akala, who had served at the same time with DCP Oyedemi, told our correspondent.

“He was formerly staying with his mother in a house he built for her around Randa area of Ogbomoso, later he built another house located at Petros Academy Street, Federal Lowcost area and he thereafter moved to the new building where he was staying alone whenever he comes around. He was a quiet person, and he was unmarried,” another source stated.

LEADERSHIP recalls that DCP Olugbemi previously served as the Aide de Camp (ADC) to a former governor of Oyo State, Late Christopher Adebayo Alao Akala, in 2006.
