The Ogun state police command have arrested 40 year old, Femi Adebowale, pictured above for beating his 37 year old wife, Kuburat to death at their home in the Agbado area of the state last Monday.
A statement released by the command’s spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, says trouble started when Femi gave the deceased N10, 000 to prepare for her younger brother’s baby’s naming ceremony but she said it wasn’t enough. This led to a fight between the couple. The wife slumped and died in their apartment during the beating.
Femi was arrested after the younger brother of the deceased lodged a complaint at the Agbado Division. When he was interrogated, Femi accused his wife of committing adultery and that he got to find out she was having an affair with their next door neighbour.
The remains of the deceased has been deposited at the state morgue while Femi is currently in police detention and would soon be arraigned in court.
