According to Ambimbola Sule, a commercial motorcyclist in the area, “Residents in the community woke up on Saturday morning to find the lifeless body of a woman inside the river that leads into Igbele.
It was further reported that the man made a shocking confession. He allegedly not only admitted killing his wife but also said he was directed to do so by a prophet, who told him she was using his star.
Yakubu reportedly failed to drive the body far from the site of murder and dumped it in the nearby river.
A neighbour, Iya Korede gave a little description of the deceased and the suspect, currently in custody, to journalists:
“Most of the people in the area do not know her husband because he goes early to work and comes back late. But his wife is a very hard working woman. She built the house they live in. As if that was not enough, she bought a commercial bus for him. What else does he want? If he was tired of the marriage, he should have driven her away instead of killing her.”
