33-year-old man, Mr. Francis Okogun, has lamented the slow probe by the Police into the killing of his 30-year-old Fatima Musa-Okogun, who was killed during a robbery attack at Eleyele area of Ibadan, at about 7.30pm on December 31, 2013.

According to Punch, the couple travelled to Ibadan from Benin on Dec 29 to spend part of the Yuletide with Fatima’s parents, and were returning from a visit.

It was gathered that the robbers struck the house, while the couple were driving into the compound. They were said to have shot Fatima in the head, before rough-handling Okogun and two of Fatima’s younger brothers who were the persons at home

Fatima was said to have later been rushed to the University College Hospital, where she was co.nfirmed dead. She was buried the following day.

According to Francis, “When those armed robbers attacked us and killed my wife, I almost lost my faith in God. This is because my wife and I were just returning from an orphanage home where we went to do charity on that day. We reported to the Eleyele Police Division, and I have not heard anything since then.

“I believe the police can still expose the killers of my wife. I want them to open up the case, and try as much as possible to do a thorough investigation. I later got to know the case was transferred to the state Criminal Investigation Department.

“Since she was killed, life has not been easy, but I thank God. I am gradually overcoming the agony of losing my wife few fours to the first day of the year. She was in her second stage of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria. She was a graduate of Accountancy from the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State. We had met and got married in October 2012.”

When the Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, Olabisi Ilobanafor, was contacted, she said, “When there is a matter like this, and you want to know what the police are doing, the man should contact me directly ─ not by writing a petition or by going to the press.

“When he comes, he will be directed to the Operation Commander, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad. He will find out the level of police investigation. Presently, I may not be able to give details concerning the matter.”
