The police command in Ogun has begun investigation into the death of a couple, Kehinde and Bukola Fatinoye, at Ibara GRA in Abẹokuta, on new year’s day.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, made the disclosure in an interview on Monday in Abeokuta.

Recall that Kehinde and Bukola were burnt to death when suspected arsonists set their house ablaze on January 1.

One of their children and their housekeeper were also alleged to have been kidnapped by those behind the suspected arson.

Mrs Oyeyemi said the police will do all within their powers to reveal those behind the dastardly act.

It was gathered that the incident happened shortly after the couple returned from ‘Cross Over Service’ to usher in the new year.

Kehinde and Bukola were employees of the Central Bank of Nigeria and Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, respectively.
