According to TheNation, Odunayo Olumale, a 27-year-old housewife, fatally stabbed her husband Olamilekan Salahudeen after he made sexual attempts toward her.
Three months after the couple’s reunion and reconciliation after their separation, the event took place.
Police spokesman Adewale Osifeso said that a preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased and his wife had returned to their home in the Oko-Oba neighborhood of Oyo town on the day of the incident after a three-month separation while presenting the suspect at the Oyo Police Command headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan.
“On or about November 17, 2022, at approximately 0350 hours, one Ismaila Tijani reported at Dubar Divisional Police headquarters that on or about November 16, 2022, at approximately 0223 hours, his son Olamilekan Salahudeen, age 35, was stabbed to death with a knife by his wife Odunayo,” Osifeso stated.
The deceased attempted to have sex with his wife but was rejected. This sparked a fight during which the deceased grabbed and broke his wife’s phone. The deceased was then stabbed in the chest in retaliation and died as a result.
According to Osifeso, the suspect has now admitted to the crime and her unfortunate part in the situation, and she will be prosecuted in court once the investigations are through.
When media pressed the suspect for remark about the event, the suspect refused.
The Command also paraded another 25 suspects, including suspected hoodlums who specialized in burlesque and warehouse looting, suspected armed robbers, suspected kidnapping, and suspected armed robbery.
