Police operatives in Ogun State have arrested a mechanic, Oluwole Okewola, for allegedly k#lling his wife, Rofiat Okewola, 33, after she confronted him for sl££ping with another woman in their matrimonial home.
The suspect was said to have sl@mmed his wife’s h£ad against the wall at their residence in the Owode area of Sango-Ota, on Sunday, August 6, 2023.
TheNation reports that the deceased, a tailor, 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 dr@gged her outside the love nest and sm@shed her h£ad against the wall at the back of the building in a fit of fury.
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
I rushed to the scene with another mutual friend of ours and met her lifel£ss body on the ground. Her husband is hot-tempered. She (Rofiat) used to hide her domestic travails from me.
However, there was a day I stumbled on a footage on her mobile phone showing her badly br¥talised body as a result of the b£ating meted out to her by her husband, while I wanted to view some trending fashion styles but she only described it as a long story.”
According to her, the deceased had two children, aged seven and six respectively, with her husband.
