An Ile Ife group, Ile-Ife United Front, in Osun State, has thrown its weight behind the detained owner of the Hilton Honours Hotel, Chief Ramon Adedoyin, saying he is a decent and illustrious son of Ife and must not be allowed to suffer unjustly.
In a statement signed by the President of the group, Prince Joseph Eluwade, the group announced its support for Dr. Ramon Adedoyin.
Eluwade said that he had known Adedoyin for over 50 years as a hard-working Ife indigene whose source of wealth could be traced by public.
“I have know Adedoyin personally for over 50 years. We all know how he started Tutorial and many of us still call him that till today. The whole incident is very unfortunate. He is just a victim of circumstances and his enemies are capitalizing on the matter to settle their personal scores with him.
“The Adedoyin we know is a devout Muslim, a philanthropist and has done Ife land proud in many spheres of life. To the best of our knowledge, he is equally well to do as he has many flourishing businesses within and outside Ile-Ife,” he said.
The group implored everyone to wait for outcome of police investigations.
Adedoyin has been in police custody over the death of Timothy Adegoke, the Obafemi Awolowo University MBA student who died in his hotel in November.
