Woman alleged of burning husband to death commits suicide
Ifeoluwa, the wife of an Egypt-based Nigerian, named Bolu Bamidele, who set her husband ablaze last Tuesday in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, for having a child out of wedlock, has committed suicide by poisoning herself.
Bamidele died after he was allegedly set ablaze by his wife, Ifeoluwa, over allegations of having an extramarital affair.
Bamidele, popularly known as Teebam, was said to have returned to Osogbo, the capital of Osun State from Cairo, Egypt, to give his wife a nice treat on her birthday.
The wife, according to findings, discovered that Bamidele had cheated on her and even had a child outside their union.
Ifeoluwa was said to have gone through her husband’s telephone and discovered the messages the deceased allegedly exchanged with another woman on WhatsApp.
After confronting him with the information, an argument ensued.
The lady was said to have angrily written on her WhatsApp stories that she would be taking drastic action.
She had said that her man has “pushed her to the edge” and that people would weep over the two of them before daybreak.
Bamidele was reportedly set ablaze in his home at Koka village on Sunday, with all his belongings destroyed.
Meanwhile, Ifeoluwa’s remains were brought to the mortuary of the Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Hospital, Jaleyemi, Osogbo, by policemen, who were said to have decided to kill herself to evade the consequence of her action.
One of the workers at the hospital, who spoke with Tribune Online over the incident on condition of anonymity, said that she was brought dead to the hospital by the policemen and had been deposited at the morgue.
Confirming the incident, the Public Relations Officer of the state police command, Yemisi Opatola, confirmed the development, saying she was the one that facilitated bringing the corpse of the woman to the hospital mortuary
