THE lover of the 29-year-old corps member strangled in Ibadan, Olusola Babalola, who was held by the police, has been released from police custody.

Babalola was released last Thursday according to the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Oyo State, Mr Adekunle Ajisebutu.

His release came after spending four nights in police custody following the murder of Miss Omolola Abogunrin on the evening of Sunday, October 4 in Apata area of Ibadan.

He was arrested for being the last person to speak with the deceased on telephone before her death.

Miss Abogunrin was raped and killed about 1,000 metres away from Babalola’s house. She was on her way to the latter when she was attacked by unknown criminals who raped and snuffed life out of her. The incident occurred at about 1:30 pm last Sunday.

The love birds had slated their wedding for October 17, the day Omolola would have turned 29 years.

Ajisebutu in an interview said Babalola was released in the course of investigation, pointing out that anyone suspected to be capable of giving useful information would be interrogated.

As at the time of her death, the late Omolola was rounding-up her one year National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State. She graduated from the Federal Polytechnic, Ibadan.
