A 37-years old driver, Morenikeji Adeyemi on Friday said he killed his boss’s wife, Oyewumi Ayanwale because his boss sacked him for no reason after four years of working with him.
Adeyemi who was paraded by the Oyo state police command in Ibadan said he was able to lure the victim under the pretense of taking her for prayers.
According to him, he strangled the victim to death and consequently made away with her vehicle.
Adeyemi who was arrested by the Anti-Kidnapping squad of the Police Headquarters, Ibadan, said he was hurt when his boss sacked him.
He said “I was hurt when my boss sacked me. That time, 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’ 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 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 state police commissioner, Shina Olukolu who paraded the suspect at the command headquaters in Ibadan said the suspect was arrested at Sango Ota in Ogun state where he had relocated to after committing the crime.
