A Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Gbolahan Olugbemi, has been found dead in his house in Ogbomosho, Oyo State.

Olugbemi, who was of the Lagos Police Command, had gone home to celebrate the Easter holidays.

The senior police officer who was celebrated for his role during the #EndSARS protest was said to have died in a mysterious circumstance.

The incident has thrown officers attached to Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) into mourning.

The FCID spokesperson, ASP Aminat Mayegun, said the police were going to investigate his death, adding that the former Personal Assistant to the late DIG Israel Ajao and late CP Young Arebamen could not have committed suicide as being rumoured.

A police source at FCID said some persons would be invited for questioning over the incident.

“This is to ascertain where the deceased went to before his death, who was with him at the time he entered his room, including who had his two handsets as of the time of death,” the source said.

However, insider sources said the body of the 50-year-old Police officer was found alone in his mansion.

A United Nations medalist in Law Enforcement and Administration, Olugbemi had served as the ADC to the late Oyo State Governor, Alao Akala.

He was Divisional Police Officer at Ilupeju, and Area Commander in Ajah in Lagos.
