The Lagos Police Command has confirmed the death of Adekemi Faboro was natural. She was alleged to have been killed by her facebook lover, Ezekiel Adekunle. Recounting the incident that led to Adekemi Faboro’s death, the lover of the deceased said this was the second time he was visiting his daughter, Adekemi in Lagos.
But the alleged suspect, Ezekiel Adekunle said, “I met her sometime between September and October 2014, on facebook and we began to chat. Early this year, she visited me at my base in Shagamu and spent two days. She actually came on a Friday and went back to Lagos on Saturday.
“He added he has an apartment in Shagamu, but his wife and two kids live in Ibadan. He was in Lagos to spend the weekend with Adekemi Faboro.
It all began at mid might when Adekemi began to complain of headache. Suddenly she started coughing. She coughed for a long while. It was when the cough persisted that Ezekiel knocked the door of her co-tenant for help.
Adekemi was rushed to a nearby hospital. After examining her, she was transferred to the General Hospital. This time, her cough was getting worse. With the assistance of her neighbour, they took her to Ifako General Hospital, Agege, Lagos. By the time the doctor could attend to her, she had passed on.
Immediately, police were contacted and Ezekiel Adekunle was arrested by Area G Police men and was later transferred to Pen Cinema Police Station.
