A 25-year-old man, Ajibade Olumuyiwa, has allegedly killed his wife’s suspected lover, Olakiitan Balogun, after catching him on their matrimonial bed with his wife.
Olumuyiwa was said to have hit the deceased’s head against the wall after catching his wife, Titilayo, and her alleged lover around 12.30am on Sunday at Doland Estate, Ajuwon, in Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, made the disclosure in a statement made available to journalists in Abeokuta on Wednesday.
The PPRO stated:
“A distress call was received that a man had murdered his wife’s concubine inside his house. On receipt of the distress call, 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 into his house around 12.30am on the fateful day and met the deceased right inside the room with his wife.
“This infuriated him and he started beating the man and hit his head against the wall, leading to the death of the victim.”
During interrogation, Titilayo reportedly explained that the suspect had abandoned her in the house for eight months after instructing their gateman to monitor her and supply him with information if she was seen with any other man.
“She stated further that the victim was a cobbler leaving in the area and on that day, the deceased’s girlfriend came to pay him a visit and since he was not living alone, he decided to bring the lady to a room in the Olumuyiwas’ 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 victim’s girlfriend.”
The PPRO explained that the corpse of the deceased had been deposited in the general hospital mortuary for examination.
