Silifat Wura, the widow of the late popular traditional healer, Fatai Yusuf, popularly known as Oko Oloyun, has remarried.
According to reports, the mother of six married her new husband, Aremu Abiola, barely three years after her first husband was killed .
The colourful wedding ceremony was held in Lagos on Saturday, November 12, 2022.
Oko Oloyun was killed on January 23, 2020 when unknown assailants opened fire on his two-car convoy on the Abeokuta-Iseyin road in Oyo state.
How Oko Oloyun Was Murdered
Silifat’s late husband, Alhaji Yusuf was killed by unknown assailants who opened fire on his two-car convoy on the Abeokuta Iseyin road in Oyo state on January 23, 2020.
An interesting twist to the story was that before his death, the deceased had earlier detected fraud being perpetuated in his Lagos office.
This subsequently, allegedly, led to the burning of some financial /bookkeeping records.
In addition to the other possible motives, a plausible nexus was suspected between the fire incident and the attack on the deceased.
This led to the questioning of the late businessman’s staff and two of his police escorts by crack detectives.
Police Reveals ‘Oko Oloyun’ Death Was Plotted By His Staff Over Fraud
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Olugbenga Fadeyi, in a statement released during investigations, disclosed that the fraud was possibly responsible for the fire incident in the office during which some account records were destroyed.
The statement had read: “The report of Yusuf’s death was received by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Igbo-Ora that the two-car convoy of the deceased was allegedly ambushed shortly after passing through five different police stop and search teams along Igbo-Ora road by yet-to-be-identified assailants who fired at the moving vehicles on the road from the thick forest.
“The two-man armed escorts of policemen protecting the deceased engaged the assailants, but they managed to escape back into the forest after a single shot had hit the deceased, who died later of his bullet injuries.
“An interesting twist to the story was that the deceased had earlier detected an alleged bookkeeping records fraud in his Lagos office, which subsequently allegedly led to the burning of some financial/book-keeping records.
“In addition to other possible motives, a plausible nexus is, therefore, being suspected between the fire incident and the attack on the deceased.
“Some of his staff and two police escorts are being questioned by a team of crack detectives from the homicide section of State Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku, Ibadan, with a view of finding and apprehending the fleeing suspects, who committed the heinous act.”
It’s almost three years since his gruesome murder and the case remains unsolved till date.
