A Former President, Ibadan College of the Alumni Association, worldwide and erstwhile Chairman of the Board of Directors, University of Ibadan Ventures Limited, Dr Abib Olamitoye and some of his staffers have regained their freedom from the police custody, barely six days after they were detained over alleged attack on course of a 91-year-old woman.
The medical expert and his workers had been in the police custody since the alleged attack on the corpse of a 91year-old woman who died in the hospital recently.
On Wednesday, Olamitoye broke his silence over the incident, thanking Nigerian masses for “standing firmly behind him over recent alleged sabotage and malicious damage being done on Radio and Social Media by those hellbent on pulling him down.”
Olamitoye, the owner of four biggest private hospitals in the Southwestern part of Nigeria, whose comments were posted on the hospital’s verified Facebook handle (Ibadan Central Hospital) on Wednesday afternoon said he was relieved for the first time in the month of November.
The former Special Adviser to the Governor of Oyo State on Health and Co-partner, Abib Olamitoye Foundation Ward, UCH, Ibadan was quoted as thanking God for the release of hospital’s staffers in police custody since the alleged attack on the corpse of a 91year-old woman who died in the hospital recently.

“The last eight days have witnessed sabotage and a malicious attack on Ibadan Central Hospital. To the glory of God, all the staff members that were apprehended have regained their freedom.
“With the redirection of my mind from the damage being done on radio, the social media attack of our brand and the news of woes being peddled, the burden I felt dropped. I went to bed light hearted and slept soundly. I give God the glory.
“At 65, after establishing the two biggest private hospitals South West of Lagos, and the two biggest private hospitals in Ibadan, having authored 23 books to help different people from various walks of life develop themselves and create wealth, and having various other companies both in Nigeria and the United Kingdom, which employ over 500 staffers, I thank God for a fulfilled life.
