share on:
The Lagos state police is currently investigating the death of a middle-aged woman, identified as Silifat Yakubu who was allegedly killed by her husband, Ismail Yakubu, at Igbele, near Araromi Ale Olorunda Local Council Development Area, along Badagry Expressway in Lagos.
According to Vanguard report, Silifat was apparently dumped in a small river after she had been murdered.
Residents, who reported the case to the police, disclosed that some of her body parts, such as her eyes, breasts and uterus, were missing upon discovery.

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.

“Initially, people could not identify the person because her face had several cuts. She was wearing a lace gown, with no underwears.”
Several people were arrested by police in connection with the incident which initially resembled a ritual killing.

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.”
