“A certain man identified as Oyelowo Ajanaku Oyediran was on Tuesday, 2nd of February, 2016, stabbed to death by his wife, Yewande Ayediran nee Fatoki, in Ibadan, Oyo state capital.According to reports on Havilah Magazine, Yewande, a lawyer, is the daughter of a Venerable and had been married to Oyediran for three years without a child.On Monday night, she heard her husband had a son outside wedlock.This, reports alleged, generated into a heated argument between the couple which resulted in a squabble and the eventual stabbing of her husband on the shoulder.Oye had gone to the hospital to be treated and the stab wound on the right shoulder was stitched.Thereafter, he went home to sleep. However, at the early hours of Tuesday morning while he was still sleeping due to the effect of the drugs he had taken, his wife reportedly slaughtered him and locked the door refusing to call for help and ignoring his weak plea for help.After a while, reports say his aggrieved wife called on the Landlady who upon response saw him in the pool of his own blood. He died few minutes later.The lady, having the powerful backing of her family is reportedly on the run and hiding from the police.According to claims by her alleged powerful political family, she is mentally unstable. The general belief is that the Fatokis are presently using all their influence to cover the story surrounding the death of the deceased.As at press time, the story has taken a new dimension as Yewande is allegedly claiming to be innocent.Meanwhile, there is yet to be any official confirmation of the incident from the police.”
