A man identified as Olanrewaju Bamidele, has been arrested by Men of the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly stabbing his wife, Adenike Olanrewaju, to death with a screwdriver.
The Ogun state police command spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement released yesterday January 20th, says that Bamidele was arrested after his son, Ayomide Olanrewaju, reported that his deceased mother was murdered by his father following a misunderstanding they had.
The son told the police that he watched his father hit his mother with a very big stick which caused her to fall into a coma and then afterwards, he used a screwdriver to stab her on the head until she died.
“On the strength of the report, the officer-in-charge Ofada Police Post, DSP Akinfolahan Oluseye led his men to the scene at Bisodun village via Ofada where the suspect who had been held down by the people of the community was handed over to the police and he was immediately taken to Owode-Egba Divisional headquarters where he is currently being interrogated.
The corpse of the victim has been deposited at Olabisi Onabanjo Teaching Hospital Mortuary, Sagamu for autopsy, while the screwdriver and the stick which the suspect used to kill the victim have also been recovered” he said
According to reports, the suspect, who is known for always battering his wife, was nabbed by the police after his children caught him digging a shallow grave near their home to bury their deceased mother.
Abimbola stated that the suspect will be charged to court once investigation has been completed.
