The Osun State Police Command has revealed that late Chief Oladepo Asaolu, who was kidnapped and murdered in the state was sold to abductors by his tenant.

Late Asaolu was the Babaloja of Ora-Igbomina in Ifedayo Local Government Area of Osun State.

The decomposing body of Asaolu was recovered from Akisa forest in Ora-Igbomina four days after he was abducted.

Asaolu was said to have been declared missing on October 5, 2022 after a motorcyclist came to his house in Ora-Igbomina around 5am and took him to an unknown place.

The deceased was said to have informed neighbours that the unknown bike man was taking him to his farm.

I gathered that his tenant, an indigene of Osan community, close to Ora-Igbomina, sold him to kidnappers at the rate of N1 million. Meanwhile, his abductors have been arrested. Four of them are presently at the police net." the police spokesperson said.
