A 37-year old driver, Morenikeji Adeyemi, has admitted killing his boss’s wife, saying: “I was hurt when my boss sacked me.”
Morenikeji Adeyemi, who made the confession today, Saturday, as he was paraded by the Oyo State Police Command in Ibadan, said that at the time his boss sacked him, “my wife just had her baby and because there was no income anymore, we lost the baby.
“So, I thought of a way to get back at him, because it was so painful. My boss’s wife had once told me about her spiritual challenges, and I had promised to take her to a place for prayers.
“I was able to use that as a premise to lure her and I told her that I was taking her to a place at Awe along Awe/Oyo road. We took her car and along the way, she said she was pressed, so she went into the bush. I followed her and strangulated her by the river in the bush. I then took her vehicle and ran away, before I was arrested two weeks ago.”
The Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Shina Olukolu, who paraded the suspect at the command headquarters in Ibadan, said the suspect was arrested at Sango Ota in Ogun state where he had relocated to after committing the crime.
