Police in Ogun state have arrested a man, Ajibade Olumuyiwa(25), for hacking one Olakitan Balogun, a cobbler to death over suspicion that he was having illicit affairs with his wife.

The suspect had returned home late last March 16, met the secret lover in the house with his wife, and in a fit of fury attacked him, striking his head repeatedly against the wall until he dropped to the floor dead.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who made this known in a release on Wednesday, stated that the suspect was arrested at about 1:45 am of the day following a distress call to the Divisional Police Officer(DPO), Ajuwon division by residents of Doland Estate that a man has “murdered his wife’s concubine right inside his house.”

Abimbola, a Deputy Superintendent of Police(DSP), added that the Ajunwon DPO, Chief Superintendent of Police(CSP), Afolabi Kazeem, upon receiving the distress call, mobilised detectives to the scene and arrested the suspect.

The Police Image maker in the state, stated that the suspect claimed to have returned home about 12: 30 midnight on the fateful day and met the deceased inside the house with his wife, and in anger began to beat him, banging his head against the wall until he was dead.

But the suspect’s wife, Titilayo Olayiwola, denied having any immoral relationship with the victim, alleging that the suspect had abandoned her in the house for the past eight months with an instruction to the gateman to be monitoring and feeding him with information if he sees her with any man.

She stated further that the victim was a cobbler living within the area and on that day, the deceased’s girlfriend came to pay him visit and since he is not living alone, he decided to bring the girl to a room in the house due to his closeness to the family.

unfortunately, 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 girlfriend to the victim.

The Police Public Relations Officer, stated that the remains of the victim have been deposited at the general hospital mortuary for post mortem examination while the case has also been transferred to the homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation.
