Police have commenced an investigation into the Monday night’s alleged murder of a businesswoman, Abimbola Ayanwale, a close source learnt yesterday.
Ayanwale, a clothier, was alleged to have been murdered by someone who called her on her mobile phone after she returned home from work.
She was said to have gone out shortly after receiving the call only for her body to be pushed off a commercial bus near the Maryland Mall on Ikorodu Road.
According to a tribute on Facebook by one of her relatives Adegoke Adekemi, they were called around 11pm on Monday that she was dead.
Adekemi wrote: “Aunty mi Ayanwale Abimbola Modinat, you were still active on WhatsApp till 8pm yesterday (Monday). Only for us to be called around 11pm that you’re dead! How do these things happen?
“One minute, you’re healthy and bubbly. The next minute, you were called by someone, you went and you were shot to death! It’s a wicked world!
“My heart is just about to explode. I can’t wrap my head around this. Rest in peace Aunty mi. We will miss you dearly,”
It was gathered that Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage obtained from a shop near the shopping mall showed when her body was pushed off a moving commercial bus.
Her friends and relatives, who took to social media, said her death was a clear case of murder.
None of her valuables was stolen nor her body part missing. They ruled out the possibility of her falling victim to ‘one-chance operators.’
Police spokesman Bala Elkana, a Deputy Superintendent (DSP) said there was no sign of bullet wound or stabbing on the woman’s body.
He said an investigation has commenced on the matter to ascertain the true position.
Elkana said: “We are investigating. No sign of bullet wounds or stabbing on her body. She seems to have jumped out of the moving vehicle.”
I wish you a better place rest in the bosom all Almighty God.
