A 33-year-old woman, Rofiat Okewola, was k!lled by her husband in Ogun State after she confronted him for sleeping with another woman.
Earlier reports said that the husband, a Lagos-based mechanic, slammed his wife’s head against the wall during an argument over upkeep money.
However, according to The Nation, the deceased, a tailor, was furious when she caught her husband making love to a woman in an apartment in the Owode area of Sango-Ota, Ogun State on August 6, 2023.
She had dashed out of her shop on Bosun Adeyemi Street in the Adalemo area of Lagos State and rushed home to confront her husband and the strange woman but the mother of two didn’t come out alive.
Findings revealed that when Rofiat confronted her husband and his lover who bolted immediately, her husband dragged her outside the love nest and sm@shed her head against the wall at the back of the building in a fit of fury.
The embattled husband, who works as a mechanic in the Abule Egba area of Lagos State was swathed by an angry mob who intercepted him as he attempted to flee. He was subsequently taken away by men of the Sango-Ota Divisional Headquarters led by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO).
The angry mob condemned his action, stressing that he could have simply sent his wife packing instead of k!lling her.
“Why did you refuse to take the woman to the hospital as soon as she passed out after you brutalised her?” The suspect couldn’t offer any explanation as he babbled his regrets.
One of the friends of the deceased, Biola aka Dasol said:
‘’Rofiat was the chief whip of the tailors association in this community. She was also in charge of the preparation for a party that was to be held by the association. I was to accompany her to the market to purchase some items needed for the party last week.
“I spoke with her on the phone on the day of the incident around 12 noon. Surprisingly, I was at a party when the chairperson of the tailors association at Adalemo broke the news of her d£ath to me on the phone.”
