Dec 28, 2014 – Picture: Hired Killers Murder Nigerian Medical Doctor In Akure Ondo State, Set Hospital On Fire To Cover Up Evidence

David Akintayo Oguntuase, Head Of Paediatrics At FMC Owo Found Dead In His Clinic In Akure

The family of Dr. David Akintayo Oguntuase, Head of Paediatrics at the Federal Medical Centre, Owo, who was found dead on his clinic in Akure, Ondo State, after it was razed by fire in the eve of Christmas, has said the medical practitioner was murdered.

The Universal Medical Clinic owned by Oguntuase was in flames when residents were in festive mood and by the time the bellows of fire and smoke died down, Dr. Oguntuase was found dead.

While the police in Ondo are still examining the different theories to unravelling the cause of the fire, the deceased’s family has concluded that the medical practitioner was killed by assassins and burnt to give a semblance of a fire accident

The older brother of the deceased, Ben Oguntuase, in a statement made available to our correspondent on Friday, said, a thorough examination of the debris of the hospital and the site of the incident revealed trails left behind by the murderers and how they accomplished the dastardly act.

“They shot him in the main clinic area and carried his body to the room in the back area where they left him face down. Not done, they severed his hands and legs before proceeding to douse the body with petrol.

“The rest of the building on the inside was sprinkled with petrol before it was all set ablaze. It inferno made the building implode as the roof caved in,” the senior Oguntuase said.

He noted that the fire did not affect other surrounding buildings, suggesting that the killing was professionally plotted and executed.

Explaining the premise on which his theory was based, Oguntuase said the walls of the clinic were stained with blood showing that his brother was attacked and dragged to the place where he was eventually burnt.

He also explained that the walls of the fence showed marks of the feet of the assailants as they climbed to escape through the fence, and that the keg with which they brought petrol was left behind at their exit point.

“This case has gone beyond mere speculation into the realm of reality as to where the police should focus their searchlight to unearth the criminals and their sponsor,” he said.

Oguntuase also rejected the theories of suicide or fire accident caused by a gas explosion, saying the doctor’s body was dismembered before it was set ablaze. He added that there was enough evidence at the crime scene to assist the investigation of the police.

    Dr David Adetayo Oguntuase was killed and burnt in his private clinic on
    Xmas day 25th December 2014. He was the Consultant Pediatrician/Head of
    Pediatrics, paediatrician at Federal medical centre Owo, Ondo State. His
    death is related to the ongoing EFCC fraud investigation of the chief
    medical director, Dr. O. A. Omotosho. He is accused of embezzling 100
    million naira meant for staff training and medical equipment.
    Dr Oguntauase was acting as CMD prior to
    appointment of Omotosho. Most people thought Dr Oguntause will be
    appointed but we all know how Nigerian system of God fatherism works. Dr
    Omotosho was appointed directly from Abuja with the help of Owo ruling
    Monarch King DVF Olateru-Olagbegi.
    Dr Oguntause problems started when the
    federal budget allocated for staff training, purchase of CT scans and
    other medical equipment went missing and EFCC was alerted. The EFCC team
    came to arrest Dr Omotosho but he escaped through the morgue section of
    the hospital and jumped over the fence. The administrative manager, Mr
    Lagundoye and public Relations Officer [PRO], Mr. Yusuf Olarewaju with
    the rest of the senior management team were not so happy with Dr
    Oguntause because they believe he was the only senior member of the team
    that was not in support of their embezzlement depriving the hospital
    and reduction of salaries paid to junior staffs.
    They knew he will spill the beans TO EFCC.
    On December 15, Lagos State High Court judge Lawal-Akapo issued a bench
    warrant against the doctor.He ordered the EFCC to produce him on
    January 26, 2015 to come and take his plea. Dr Omotosho was arrested
    three days before xmas day. Dr Oguntause was going to take over as
    acting while Dr Omotosho is suspended from office.
    On xmas day 25th Dec 2014,Dr Oguntuase was killed and burnt beyond recongnition in his clinic at Akure .
    May his soul rest in perfect peace.”
