How voice note by housewife beaten to death revealed husband as killer
A 45-year-old man, Segun Omotosho Ebenezer, was on Sunday 20th of November 2022 arrested by men of Ogun state Police Command for beating his 42 years old wife Omotosho Olubukola to death.
The arrest of the suspect followed a complaint lodged at Kemta Divisional Headquarters on the 14th of November 2022, by the elder sister of the deceased. She reported that the deceased was beaten and injured by her husband over a minor disagreement.
The deceased was subsequently rushed to Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba Abeokuta, by the suspect for medical attention, but she gave up the ghost while receiving treatment.
Unknown to the husband, the deceased had sent a voice note to her family members, informing them that her husband has used a padlock to hit her on the head while beating her, and that if she died, they should be aware that it was her husband that killed her.
As soon as the voice note was played to his hearing, the husband took to his heels having realised that his evil deed had been exposed.
Upon the report and the recording evidence, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Kemta Division, Chief Superintendent Police (CSP) Adeniyi Adekunle, detailed his detectives to go after the husband and fished him out from wherever he might be.
Ebenezer was subsequently traced to Akinseku village Abeokuta where he has been hibernating and was promptly apprehended.
Preliminary investigation revealed that their incessant quarrel was because the deceased built a private school in the name of herself and the husband, but the husband who is a carpenter had wanted to take over the control of the school which the deceased who was an NCE graduate refused.
This has been the reason why the suspect had always been beating the deceased, until the fateful day when he used the iron padlock to hit her on the head, leading to her death.BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
