One Omotayo Salawudeen has been arrested alongside her accomplice, Oladapo Dolapo, who she conspired with to allegedly kill her husband in Osogbo.
The Osun State Police Commissioner, Olafimihan Adeoye expressed shocked on the unpleasant scenario which led to the death of 43-year-old Alhaji Salawudeen Hakeem of No.11, Adeniran street, Hallelujah Estate, Osogbo
He told news men that his men acted upon the receipt of a case of murder, which was lodged at Dada Estate Divisional Police Headquarters by one Engineer Salawudeen.
Investigations led to the arrest on the deceased wife, Omotayo Salawudeen and her co-plotter, Oladapo Dolapo. Oladapo, an ex-convict who just gained his freedom from Ilesa prison about four months ago, was contacted by Mrs. Omotayo Salawudeen, to kill her husband on the ground that he married a second wife.
She offered to pay N10, 000, 00 for the job as against the N300, 000. 00 earlier demanded by Oladapo “Having concluded their plans, the duo exchanged numbers while Mrs. Omotayo later called Oladapo to inform him of her husband’s whereabouts.
Mrs. Omotayo Salawudeen took Oladapo through the kitchen and hid him inside a store in their apartment. When the husband came, the wife signaled her guest (Oladapo) and immediately, Mrs. Omotayo Salawudeen used pillow to cover her husband’s mouth while Oladapo stabbed him to death in his chest”, the CP said.
Meanwhile, after the killing, Oladapo wrote some inscriptions such as “NO PRICE NO PAY”, “AXE AYE” “FORGIVENESS IS A SIN” on the wall and door respectively under the disguise that the killing was carried out by cultists.
“The wife made an outcry after Oladapo had gone to raise alarm that suspected assassins have killed her husband”.
