Oyeyemi says that the suspect was caught after a younger sister of the dead wife went to the Mowe Divisional Police Headquarters and told them what happened.

The complainant said that her older sister’s daughter told her that the woman who lived with her husband at 7, Madam Felicia Street, Orimerunmu in Mowe “had been beaten to death by her husband.”

SP Folake Afeniforo, the DPO of the Mowe division, was said to have quickly sent detectives to the scene after hearing the report. The suspect was then taken into custody.

“The dead body of the victim was there, and it was taken to a funeral home in Shagamu for an autopsy.”

A preliminary investigation, according to a report in the Dsmedia24, found that “the suspect strangled the dead person during a fight over a small disagreement.”

Oyeyemi said that when the husband realized he had killed his wife, he burned parts of her body with a hot iron to make it look like she had been killed by electricity.

But he said that their 8-year-old daughter saw the whole thing. He said, “It was the daughter who testified that she saw her dead mother’s father strangling her to death.”

Lanre Bankole, the State Commissioner of Police, had ordered that the suspect be taken to the Homicide section of the State CIID for further investigation and strict prosecution.
