Oyo State Police Command, yesterday, said it has commenced investigation into circumstances leading to the death of Olayinka Adeshina, who was found dead in a hotel in Ibadan.
The Ibadan-based online vendor, also known as Khadi, was reportedly found dead, last week Thursday, at Wetland Hotel in the Akobo area of Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
