Housewife sets husband’s mistress ablaze in Ogun

A 32-year-old housewife and a mother of 3, Kehinde Abdul Wasiu, has been arrested by operatives of Ogun State police command for pouring petrol on her husband’s mistress, Tosin Olugbade, 23, and subsequently setting her ablaze.

According to press release made available to Saturday Sun by the state Police Public Relation Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi the suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Onipanu Divisional Headquarters, Ota, by the husband of the deceased, Fatai Olugbade.

“Olugbade reported on November 22, that sometime in August 2021 he had accused his wife, late Tosin, of having extra marital affair with Ismail Wasiu, and to his surprise, the Tosin packed out of his house and moved to the house of Ismail Wasiu, her concubine. On November 14, 2021, he learnt that the Wasiu’s wife, Kehinde, had an argument with Tosin, which lead to Kehinde pouring petrol on Tosin then set her ablaze.

“The Tosin was rushed to the hospital by her family members but later gave up the ghost while receiving treatment,” Oyeyemi stated.

Oyeyemi continued that upon the report, the DPO Onipanu, csp, Bamidele Job, quickly mobilized his men and moved to the scene where Wasiu, who had asked his wife to runaway, was arrested.

“The case was there and then transferred to homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation. The CSP Femi Olabode led homicide team embarked on technical and intelligence based investigation, which led to the apprehension of the suspect Kehinde at Saki, Oyo state.

“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the crime, but claimed that she didn’t know what came over her on that fateful day. Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect and her husband initially lied to the family of the deceased that it was cooking gas that exploded and burnt the deceased. But when the lie was exposed, the husband quickly asked the wife to take to flight,” he stated.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the speedy conclusion of the investigation into the case with the view to charge the case to court as soon as possible.
