An Osun State High Court sitting in Osogbo has sentenced Miss Adedeji Adesola, the receptionist that received late Timothy Adegoke when he lodged in the Hilton Honors Hotel, Ile-Ife in the evening of November 6, 2021, to two years imprisonment for altering the receipt issued to the deceased.
She was said to have fabricated another receipt for the purpose of concealing traces of Adegoke’s lodgement at the hotel.
Adegoke, a postgraduate student from Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), was murdered between November 5 and 7, 2021, at the Hilton Honours Hotel in Ile-Ife, Osun state.
Adesola Adedeji was the receptionist on duty on the day late Adegoke arrived at the hotel.
The prosecutor, Fatima Adesina begged the court to be lenient with her, since she was not linked to the death of the deceased and for the fact that she was a first time offender.
The presiding judge, Justice Adepele Ojo, had on Tuesday, found Adesola guilty of doctoring the hotel receipt issued to the deceased, fabricating another and concealing of evidence charged against her.
Ojo said the two years should start counting from the first day she was detained since the commencement of the matter.
The court, however, freed three of the hotel workers, Magdalene Chiefuna, Oluwole Lawrence and Adebayo Kunle.
