The 25-year-old murder suspect who met his wife’s lover in their home after he returned home late on March 16, struck his head repeatedly against the wall until he dropped to the floor dead.
He got arrested by 1:45 am that day, after residents of Doland Estate called the police to report that a man “murdered his wife’s concubine right inside his house.”
His wife Titilayo Olayiwola who however denied having an affair with the deceased, claimed her husband abandoned her in the house for the past eight months, with an instruction to the gateman to be monitoring and feeding him with information if he sees her with any man.
She further disclosed that the deceased who was a cobbler, brought his girlfriend to a room in their house due to his closeness with the family and because he was not living alone.
“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,’ she said.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the arrest of the man who killed his wife’s lover, said the remains of the victim have been deposited at the general hospital mortuary for post mortem examination while the case has also been transferred to the homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation.
