Mrs. Kate Jonathan, the deceased’s mother explained that her daughter had packed out of her matrimonial house five days to the unfortunate incident and was living with her when she decided to return for a party at the children’s school. She said she never returned alive.

Narrating further, she said she reported the case at the station, where she was told that the suspect had already reported that his wife committed suicide by taking local insecticide, Sniper.

”I was called on the telephone by an unknown number around 4pm on Sunday, November 12. The caller said, ‘Your daughter’s husband has killed her at Oworo’. He dropped the call.

Around 5pm when I got to their house, I discovered that the house was locked up. There were two boys guarding the house and they refused to open the door to me, saying the owner of the house instructed them not to open the door.

I didn’t see my daughter or her husband. I was begging them to open the door when I saw Richard jumping up through the window. He saw me and asked the boys to open the door, but they refused.

I broke the louvers of the window. The boy climbed a stool and said from inside, ‘my father has killed my mother and taken her away.’”

It was gathered that Olaoluwa had already deposited the body of his wife in the Gbagada General Hospital mortuary and had allegedly gone to obtain court documents to enable him to bury her, before he was arrested.

Mrs Jonathan, who claimed to have visited the mortuary, said Maureen’s body had machete cuts and other torture marks.

”My daughter, who worked as the manager of my chemical company had, about a week to the incident, complained that her husband said we would soon see her obituary.

I sent my eldest daughter to accompany her to the house to know what happened. The man  begged and said he was only joking. He said he really loved his wife. I insisted that she pack out of the house.

She was in my house for three days before she said she wanted to return home because her children’s school would be having a cultural party.

She left and went to the party with her husband on Saturday. It was that night that she was brutalised and killed by the husband. From what we saw in the mortuary, she had blood in her nostrils and deep cuts in her hands and legs.”

The victim’s mother asked that Maureen’s three children, namely, Richard, five; Henry, three; and Omowunmi, six months, be released to her.

The policeman with the couple’s two children, Ajisafe, said he believed Olaoluwa did not kill his wife. He explained that the suspect’s aged mother handed over the children to him for safekeeping.

The 83-year-old mother of the suspect, Florence Adejo, also denied that her son murdered Maureen.

 ”He came to knock on the door of my house late that night. He fell on the ground and started weeping and lamenting that his wife had destroyed him. A crowd gathered in front of the house where I am the landlady.

They tried to console him. He said his wife took Sniper. He said he thought it was a joke until their son, Richard, went to bring the container of the insecticide.

She was taken to a private hospital where she was initially rejected before she was taken to the general hospital where she died. I was told her mother sells the insecticide and she brought it home for mosquitoes.

Why she decided to drink it is what is beyond my understanding. My son said they didn’t have any disagreement between them and she was not mentally ill.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, said investigations were ongoing into the incident.

Rip to the victim.
