Ajibade Olumuyiwa, the suspect

A 25-year-old man, Ajibade Olumuyiwa has been arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for killing one Olakiitan Balogun who he alleged was having an amorous relationship with his wife.

Ajibade was arrested following a distress call received by the DPO of Ajuwon division from residents of Doland estate that a man has murdered his wife’s concubine right inside his house.

The DPO CSP Afolabi Kazeem led his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested.

On interrogation, the suspect explained that he came to his house in midnight of the day he was arrested and met the deceased right inside the house with his wife.

He said this infuriated him and he started beating the man and hit his head against the wall which led to the death of the victim.

,On her own part, the woman at the centre of the crisis, Titilayo Olayiwola denied having any amorous relationship with the deceased.

She explained that the suspect has abandoned her in the house for the past 8 months with an instruction to the gateman to be monitoring her and be giving him information if he see her with any man.

She stated further that the victim was a cobbler living within the area and on that day, the deceased’s girlfriend came to pay him a visit and since he is not living alone, he decided to bring the girl to a room in the house due to his closeness to the family. 

But as soon as the gateman saw him, he alerted the husband who rushed to the house and descended heavily on the deceased without listening to any explanation from her and the girlfriend to the victim.

Meanwhile, the corpse of the deceased has been deposited at the general hospital mortuary for post mortem examination

The commissioner of police CP Ahmed Iliyasu has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation and prosecution of the case. 

The CP also vowed that the command will not hesitate to deal decisively with anybody who take laws into his or her own hands for whatever reason.
