Hilton Hotel Had Been Monitoring My Husband Before He Was Killed – Wife Of OAU MBA Student, Adegoke.

Timothy Adegoke, the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) MBA student who was found dead at the Hilton Hotel and Resorts, Ile-Ife, Osun State, was said to be planning to relocate abroad before he was killed.

Bola Adegoke, the widow of the deceased revealed this on Monday, noting that her late husband was planning to relocate his family abroad over the rising insecurity in Nigeria.

Speaking with FIJ, she said, “He said he would relocate me, his children and his parents abroad while he would remain in the country. His parents sent him to school from the proceeds of farming, and he stopped them from going to the farm.”

“My husband had always used the hotel. So, they had been monitoring him. They were 16 in the hotel that night, and he was the only one they killed. I heard the hotel owner only uses people with good luck. We attend a white-garment church, and we had been told my husband had good luck.”

The mother of three children noted that getting justice for her husband could prevent such incidents in the future, especially at a time the country is faced with insecurity of all kinds.

“Although we have accepted our cross, I want justice. People must use hotels. If you travelled down to this place, you would still want to be lodged in a hotel in the evening. Ensuring justice in this case will discourage those who have plans to kill other people right now,” she said.
