Alhaja Silifat Wura Yusuf, the wife of the late prominent alternative medicine practitioner widely known as “Oko Oloyun” has remarried.
It was gathered that she recently got married to her new hubby, identified as Aremu Abiola at a colorful ceremony in Lagos and is now referred to as Mrs. Wura Abiola.
Her previous husband, Alhaji Fatai Yusuf was killed on January 23, 2020, when unknown assailants opened fire on his two-car convoy on the Abeokuta-Iseyin road in Oyo state.
It’s almost three years since his gruesome murder and the case remains unsolved to date. Opinions however are divided over whether it was or not too early for the woman to pick another husband.
How death of Fatai Yusuf ‘Oko Oloyun’ was plotted by his staff over fraud – Police
A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Olugbenga Fadeyi, informed the fraud was possibly responsible for the fire incident in the office during which some account records were destroyed.
The statement reads: “The report of Yusuf’s death was received by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Igbo-Ora that the two-car convoy of the deceased was allegedly ambushed shortly after passing through five different police stop and search teams along Igbo-Ora road by yet-to-be-identified assailants who fired at the moving vehicles on the road from the thick forest.
“The two-man armed escorts of policemen protecting the deceased engaged the assailants, but they managed to escape back into the forest after a single shot had hit the deceased, who died later of his bullet injuries.
“An interesting twist to the story was that the deceased had earlier detected an alleged bookkeeping records fraud in his Lagos office, which subsequently allegedly led to the burning of some financial/book-keeping records.
“In addition to other possible motives, a plausible nexus is, therefore, being suspected between the fire incident and the attack on the deceased.
“Some of his staff and two police escorts are being questioned by a team of crack detectives from the homicide section of State Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku, Ibadan, with a view of finding and apprehending the fleeing suspects, who committed the heinous act.”
