Abosede Ogunsola, the widow of the police officer who died inside former governor Gbena Daniel’s compound in Sagamu, Ogun State, has spoken out.
She reportedly said the former governor sent representatives to the bereaved family only last Monday, several days after the incident happened.
She also said the family was offered N1million through the DPO, but they rejected it.
“When we got to the mortuary we insisted on seeing his corpse,” said Mrs Ogunsola.
“We saw a wound on his chest and we do not believe that injury could have killed my husband. But we are sure of something, whatever is hidden to men is clear to God. Again, we do not accept that it was that wound on his chest that killed him.”
“Since this happened, it was yesterday (Monday) that they came to see us and they tendered N1 million to us. They didn’t give that money to us in our house, but few minutes after they left, it was the DPO that called us to say that they brought the sum of N1 million.
“My brother-in-law then asked what the money was for? Is it to send the children to school or to establish his wives?
“My husband’s elder brother had said, if they are not ready to say something tangible, we would leave the corpse at the mortuary, we have started discussing about the autopsy but we are not done, when we decide on that we will let you know.”
In his reaction to the publications on the death of the police officers, Daniel said the matter was under investigation and he had been “in touch with the family through police authorities.”
