A 37-year-old man, Azeez Ilias, said to be the son of a traditional ruler in Ipokia Local Government Area of Ogun State, has been found dead in his car.

Ilias who was the son of the Baale of Idoforo community was reportedly found with a dead woman simply identified as Deborah in his car parked in front of a building at Ago Egun in the Idiroko area of the state.

Confirming the incident on Wednesday in Abeokuta, the Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun, Abimbola Oyeyemi, noted that the two persons were found naked at the location.

Although he stated that they could have been murdered by unknown persons, he said the outcome of an investigation into the incident should be awaited.

“Yes, we are investigating. We want to know what led to the death of the two of them. We are suspecting that they were murdered, we are highly suspecting that.

“We don’t want to pre-empt what the outcome of the investigation is going to be. Let’s conclude our investigation for further details about the incident,” Oyeyemi said.

Moruf Yusuf, a spokesman for the Idiroko Divisional Headquarters of So-Safe Corps – a state government-owned indigenous security outfit, had also confirmed the incident to reporters on Tuesday, saying the bodies were discovered at about 2am on Monday.

It was gathered that the dead man’s clothes were found inside a gutter in front of a house suspected to be the residence of the female partner.

“The robust relationship between the So-Safe corps and the Ogun State Police Command yielded a wonderful result as the So-Safe Corps, a state agency and Idiroko Police Divisional Headquarters jointly smelt a car parked to be suspicious and as approached, found two bodies lying lifeless in the car,” said Yusuf.

“The man, a 37-year-old has been identified as Azeez Ilias, a son of one of the Baales in Ipokia axis, while the female body was identified as Deborah as at the time of this report.”

He added that efforts were ongoing to unravel the mystery behind the death of the man and the woman.
