Residents of Akobo estate, in Ibadan, Oyo state, were thrown into panic and consternation following the death of a certain man, identified as Oye Lowo Ajanaku Oyediran, who was allegedly stabbed by his wife Yewande Oyediran (Fatoki ), during a domestic fracas.
Yewande, a lawyer and a Staff of Directorate of Public Prosecution at the Ministry of Justice, Ibadan, Oyo state, is the daughter of one political bigwig, Honorable Fatoki and had been married to Oyediran for three years without a child.
A source close to the polity stated that on Monday evening, February 1, words got to the ears of Yewande that her husband had a son out of wedlock.
The hearsay generated into a heated argument between the couple which resulted in a fight and the eventual stabbing of her husband on the shoulder.
The source, Oye’s friend reported that he (Oye) was hospitalised following the stab wound as his right shoulder was stitched.
Still not satisfied, aggrieved Yewande, at the early hours of Tuesday morning, February 2 while he was still sleeping due to the effect of the drugs he had taken, slaughtered him.
Presently, a new twist to the scandal has emerged, as it was learnt that Yewande is allegedly claiming to be innocent, as her influential political family is currently using all their influence in trying to cover the death of the deceased.
It is reported that Yewande is now in police custody after being treated for a dislocated shoulder and bruises.
