The Police in Oyo State are currently investigating the death of a 21-year-old woman, Tolu Esuola, who was found tied to her bed and roasted beyond recognition in the State.

According to neighbors who requested anonymity, the late Esuola was found face-down with a cable wire tied around her wrists at Akeetan Baale compound around 11pm on July 24.
The state of her body raised suspicion in the area that her death was a murder. The victim was said to be an employee of Momoh Hospital, Oyo.
“Her mother and other siblings traveled. Her father, Mr. Femi Esuola, was also away in Ogbomosho, where he works. We did not hear any scream that night. It is very strange,” a neighbour disclosed.
Our correspondent gathered that the other co-tenants of the building were also not around on the day of the tragic incident.
However, a man identified simply as Kunle, said to be the victim’s lover before their affair went awry, has been arrested in connection with the incident.
He is currently being held at the Homicide Section of Iyaganku Police Division, Ibadan.
he Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Olabisi Clet-Ilobanafor, who confirmed the incident, said the suspect claimed he was at Minna, Niger State, when the incident took place.

“Our investigation will reveal if he is culpable or not. If the body was found burnt beyond recognition, how can anybody say it was found bound?” she said.
