Mrs. Omotayo Salawudeen, a 39-year old mother of three, Monday told newsmen in Osogbo how she terminated her 17-year-old marriage by conniving with another man to murder her husband for no just cause.
The suspect, who confessed that she committed the dastardly act after enjoying her last sexual intercourse with her late husband, Alhaji Salawudeen Hakeem (43), said she did not know exactly what came upon her to commit the crime.
Speaking shortly after she, along with four other suspects were paraded by the Pain State command at its headquarters in Osogbo, described her late husband as a good person who always took care of her needs and those of her children.
Her words: “We’ve been married for seventeen years, we are blessed with three children aged 17,15 and 12, He didn’t offend me, I was just mad at him”
“I choked him with pillow, after having sex and Dolapo stabbed him to death with a knife.
“I regret my action. I didn’t know it would result to this, I hired Oladapo Dolapo to help me kill my husband at my own desire.
Her co-conspirator, Oladapo Dolapo, (24), who was allegedly hired by Omotayo confessed that he actually stabbed the late Salawudeen while Omotayo covered his head with a pillow until he died.
He said the suspect (wife) contracted him to punish her husband by killing him, with a promise to give him whatever he requested, if the operation is carried out successfully.
Dolapo disclosed that the deceased’s wife, Omotayo enticed him to commit the crime by promising him a befitting accommodation and other largesse.
Parading the suspects, the Commissioner of Police, Olafimihan Adeoye disclosed that Engr. Salawudeen Adesina Jimoh of number 3, Engr. Adesina Salawu street, Osogbo, came to the station on May 12, 2017 and reported that on the same day at 3:00a.m, two unknown men entered into his brother’s house located at No 11, Adeniran Street, Alleluyah Estate, Osogbo, and stabbed him to death with a knife while nothing was carted away.
Adeoye further explained that “a team of police detectives and patrol men went to the scene of the crime, being the house of the deceased, where an inscription ‘No Price No Pay, Aye Axe and Forgiveness is a sin’ was written on the wall.
The Commissioner of Police stated that “Oladapo Dolapo was the first to be arrested in connection with the murder of late Salawudeen Hakeem.”
Adeoye said investigation by the police revealed that Omotayo did not only hire Dolapo, but actively participated in killing her late husband, Salawudeen.
He therefore warned members of the public to be wary of marital or domestic disputes by promptly reporting to the police for necessary action before it degenerates to such a tragic level.
He promised that the case would be charged to court as soon as investigation is completed.
Also paraded alongside Omotayo and Dolapo were Friday Augustine (28), Ojo Tifase (19) and 60 year old Augustine Adepegba, who were arrested as suspected armed robbers.
They were caught with two unregistered Bajaj Motorcycles, single cut to size barrel, damaged locally made pistol, four empty sell of AK 47 amonition and one cultlass recovered from them as exhibits.
The police boss gave assurance that the suspects would be arraigned immediately investigation was concluded.
