Alhaji Saruku Suraju, the Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ipokia local government area of Ogun State, has ended his earthly sojourn in a hotel after an alleged ‘overdose’ of sex with a woman said to be a commercial sex worker.
PM News reports that Alhaji Suraj, popularly known as “Aro Meta”, kicked the bucket on Friday night, at the De Lover Hotel, located at Aseko area, Ibatefin in Ipokia. His mistress ran away from the scene of the incident when she discovered that her lover was dead.
The 68-year old Suraj was the PDP Chairman in Ipokia local government area until his demise.
A family source confirmed that the man had died in a hotel while his mistress, who is faceless at the moment, fled without any trace. The source however, said that the death of their brother was the handwork of his political detractors. According to the source,
“The incident happened around 9:00pm on Friday and we have buried him yesterday according to Islamic rite. Yes, he died at De Lover hotel. What I know was that, his party, PDP is to have the final meeting of those to be elected as officers of the party in their forthcoming Congress.
“He was on his way to the meeting when they said, a lady called him on his phone and asked him to join her at the hotel. It was his dead body that was later taken out from the hotel with series of information flying around.
“Some people said he was strangled to death by unknown people while some said he was killed by a chemical substance sniffed into his nose with a handkerchief. What all these mean is that it has a political undertone.
“We were told that he had a misunderstanding with someone in the party over the chairmanship seat as he wanted to return to the office while other candidates are interested.
“I was not there, all these are what people are saying. I don’t want to speak ill about the dead; he was there all alone now”.
Before his unfortunate end, the late PDP Chairman, who according to a close relative, was the only child of his parent, lived alone without a wife.
It was also revealed that plans were underway to turban late Alhaji Saruku Suraju as Giwa Adinni of Ibatefin Central Mosque, but the ceremony has now been postponed indefinitely.
