The ICIR contacted the Oyo State Police Command spokesperson, Adewale Osifeso, to confirm the news.

He directed this organisation to the spokesperson of the Force Criminal Investigation And Intelligence Department (FCID).

In a chat with The ICIR, the FCID spokesperson, Aminat Mayegun, said she had contacted her Oyo State counterpart but had yet to get a confirmation.

“We have no information now. I will let you know as soon as we get any information,” Mayegun said.

She disclosed that the late Olugbemi headed the Special Enquiry Unit at the FCID Annex Alagbon close, Ikoyi, Lagos State.

According to reports, Olugbemi served as Personal Assistant to Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Israel Ajao and the late Commissioner of Police Young Arebamen.

He was also a former Divisional Police Officer (DPO) at Ilupeju and Area Commander at Ajah in Lagos State.



    He had previously served as the Aide De Camp (ADC) to the late Oyo State Governor, Alao Akala.

    Olugbemi studied at the University of Lagos and the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State.

    The 50-year-old was reportedly found alone in his mansion.

    A police source at the FCID told Daily Trust that a few people who first saw his corpse would be interrogated about the incident.
