The Nigerian Police has commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Dapo Ojora, a brother-in-law to former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in Lagos State.
It said that experts in the homicide section of the Lagos State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) have been deployed to investigate and unravel what transpired before his death.
These came hours after the family announced the death of the socialite who was alleged to have shot himself in the head yesterday at his Lagos residence.
Confirming the commencement of an investigation, the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, assured that a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of the late Polo Buff has commenced.
Odumosu, in a statement signed by the command spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Saturday, urges the general public to disregard speculations making the rounds on the cause of Dapo’s death until the outcome of the ongoing investigation.
The Lagos police boss, however, condemns speculations making the round on the socialite’s death, saying, these are not only unfounded and baseless but could jeopardise police investigation.
