Adegoke was said to have traveled from Abuja to write an exam at a distance learning centre in Moro, Osun state on November 5.

He was, however, declared missing two days later — only to be found dead.

The 37-year-old was buried on Saturday very close to the house he built for his parents in Eruwa, the headquarters of the Ibarapa East LGA of Oyo state.

During the burial, Bolatito, Adegoke’s widow, his friends as well as other members of the family were seen in tears as they gathered to pay their last respect to the deceased.

The burial started with a service of tributes at the Eruwa town hall where several youths and colleagues of the deceased at OAU gathered to recount fond memories of the late student.

At the hall, Gbade, brother to the deceased, enjoined the public to ensure justice is served in the case.

Some colleagues of the late student were also seen wearing caps with the inscription #JusticeForTimothy.

The police had earlier arrested Ramon Adedoyin and six suspects said to be staff members of Hilton Hotels and Resort, Ile-Ife where he lodged.

Adegoke’s burial comes days after lawyers to his family kicked against the planned prosecution of the suspects arrested in connection to his death at the high court in Abuja.
