A 27-year-old housewife, Odunayo Olumale has stabbed her husband, Olamilekan Salahudeen to death for making sexual advances to her.
Olumale was arrested following a report by a neighbour who informed police that she was about fleeing.
Neighbours said the incident happened in Oko-Oba area of Oyo town three months after the couple reconciled and reunited following their separation.
Speaking in Ibadan yesterday while parading the suspect at Oyo Police Command headquarter, Eleyele, Ibadan, police spokesman, Adewale Osifeso said preliminary investigation confirmed that the spouses were just reuniting after living apart for some time this year.
“On 17/11/2022 about 0350hrs, one Ismaila Tijani reported at Dubar Divisional Police headquarters that about 0223hrs of 16/11/2022, that his son named Olamilekan Salahudeen, age 35 was stabbed to death with a knife by his wife, Odunayo. The deceased made a move to have sexual intercourse with his wife but rejected. This further led to the struggle where the deceased collected and smashed his wife’s phone and in retaliation, the deceased was stabbed on the chest, leading to his death. The suspect has since confessed to the crime and her unfortunate role in the incident, adding that she would be charged to court upon completion of the investigations,” Osifeso said.
