A pregnant lady and mother, Islamat Bolaji has been beaten to death by her estranged lover, Okiki Arisekola, a commercial bus driver, during a scuffle on September 16.

The unfortunate incident happened at No. 50 Wright Street Adekunle, Yaba; where the victim lived with her 64-year-old grandmother, Gbemisola Agboola, who said she had lost Ismalat’s mother, Aishat at exactly the same age.

The Danfo bus driver has been declared wanted by the police for beating the estranged mother of his child, who got pregnant for another man to death, Sun News reports.

It was learnt that Arisekola had been dating the victim since 2015 and the union produced a baby girl. However, he showed no move to marry her, apparently because he was still trying to find his feet. But he took responsibility for his daughter.

The suspect had a quarrel with Islamat over the custody of their 11-month-old daughter named Kemi before beating her to death.

She was just recovering from a fever attack. She had not done any work for close to a week. On that day, she decided to treat herself with some medication.

She asked me to hold on to the child, an 11-month-old baby. I took the child and placed him on my lap.”

The grandmother disclosed that Islamat’s sister, also named Kemi, came in to collect the baby and handed her to the father of the child, and that was when the fight got ugly;

They dragged the baby between them, while Kemi stood looking at them. Okiki tried to leave with the baby, but Islamat didn’t allow him, because she feared that he was going to use the child for rituals.

It was a passerby that called my attention to Okiki merciless beating of my granddaughter. I almost had high blood pressure. I rushed out and called my granddaughter.

As I was leading her back into the house, she fell and fainted. The first hospital we took her to didn’t have doctors on call, but before we could get to the health center she died. It was confirmed by the doctors there,” the grandmother stated.

Though the grandma could not confirm rumours that the deceased was pregnant, however she said;

”There had been rumours about her being pregnant, but she said that she was not, so I didn’t ask her who the father was.”

It was also revealed that after Islamat got pregnant again probably for another man, the suspect stepped up visits and demanded to have custody back.
