  1. "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."
