Adedoyin is also said to be the chairman of Hilton Hotel and Resort, Ile-Ife.

Adegoke was said to have travelled from Abuja to write an exam at the OAU distance learning centre in Moro, Osun on November 5.

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

While six suspects were earlier arrested in connection to Adegoke’s death, the police said the deceased had lodged in Adedoyin’s hotel, hence his apprehension on Monday.

In a statement signed by Yemisi Opalola, the command’s spokesperson, on Wednesday, the police said the suspect has been detained.

The statement also added that Adedoyin is currently undergoing interrogation while they await the autopsy report from the hospital.

“Osun State Commissioner of Police, CP Olawale Olokode thanked members of the public, especially the bereaved family, students, and management of OAU for their patience to allow the police to continue on a thorough investigation on the matter,” the statement added.

“Olokode promised that the police is committed to ensuring that justice is done.”
