Mrs. Omotayo Salawudeen took Oladapo through the kitchen and hid him inside a store in their apartment. When the husband came, the wife signaled her guest (Oladapo) and immediately, Mrs. Omotayo Salawudeen used pillow to cover her husband’s mouth while Oladapo stabbed him to death in his chest”, the CP said.
Meanwhile, after the killing, Oladapo wrote some inscriptions such as “NO PRICE NO PAY”, “AXE AYE” “FORGIVENESS IS A SIN” on the wall and door respectively under the disguise that the killing was carried out by cultists.
“The wife made an outcry after Oladapo had gone to raise alarm that suspected assassins have killed her husband”. The duo of Mrs Salawudeen who had sometimes gone to her rival’s house with a petrol keg with a threat to burn her hands down, and her partner in crime Oladapo Dolapo, have been arrested and subjected to systematic investigations.
