Broadcaster says son was murdered in UAE

13 May 2014, 21:51

Lagos - Prominent sports broadcaster, Aisha Falode, has called on the Nigerian government to immediately intervene following the recent death of her teenage son, Oloruntoba, who died under mysterious circumstances in the United Arab Emirates.

Falode alleged that there is a plot by the Dubai Police authority to cover up the alleged murder of her 19-year-old son, who was said to have fallen from the balcony of his 17th floor in Manchester Towers in Dubai in February.

Until his death, Oloruntoba, popularly called Fray, was a student of Audio Production at the SAE Institute.

Addressing the press in Lagos today alongside her lawyer, Festus Keyamo, on the events surrounding her son's death, Falode said that her personal investigations revealed that Oloruntoba was murdered by one Faisal Aldakmary Al-Nasser, a Saudi national and one Olivia Melaine Richards Evans, a British national.

She said she had gathered enough evidence which proved her son was murdered.

“We travelled to Dubai in April and met with some of my son's friends who were present in the apartment on that fateful day. The summary of the accounts of these friends were totally different from what the police report indicated and revealed a weak attempt by the authorities in Dubai to hide facts that pointed to the fact that my poor son was murdered,” said Falode.

“My findings revealed that Faisal Aldakmary, Al-Nasser's father is a major investor in Dubai and so Dubai authorities would do anything to protect the boy because of his father's investments.”

Falode pleaded with the Federal Government to intervene on the matter and ensure that justice was done.

“No American or British citizen can be slaughtered anywhere in the world without their government asking questions. We cannot call ourselves giant of Africa if our citizens are killed in other countries and yet we have not heard of any single investigation by our government. It is indeed very sad for me. This is one murder too many,” she lamented.

She urged the government to prevail on the Dubai authorities to re-open the investigation into the murder.

“I am appealing to my government that I have done much more than I should do as a grieving mother who was left with no option but to start investigating my own son's murder myself. I implore the Nigerian government to prevail on the authorities in Dubai to re-open the investigation into the murder of my son Toba Falode and bring to book Faisal Aldakmary Al-Nasser and Miss Olivia Melanie Richards Evans both whom murdered him in cold blood.”
