A 29-year-old man, Ayodeji Oyeleye, who is the son of a landlord in Atah Estate, Awotan, Ibadan, Oyo State, has  stabbed a widowed tenant, Mrs Abidemi Adebola Johnson to death at about 11 pm on Wednesday.

It was gathered that the suspect, who was living with his parents in another house built by his father in Olomo area of Apete community had gone to the Awotan residence on Wednesday for an undisclosed reason. 

Some residents who spoke as eyewitnesses said that they heard of a struggle going on in the residence where the deceased lived, which made them think that armed robbers were around.

They said this made them to put a call through to police officers in Apete Division, while they were cautious in gaining entrance into the house.

When the policemen arrived and got in with some of the neighbours, they were said to have met the woman almost at the entrance door where she fell in a pool of blood.

Stab wounds were found on her neck and stomach, indicating that a knife was used on her.

By that time, the suspect had reportedly gone to hide in the ceiling of the house, before he was brought down by the police.

As he was being asked of the offence the woman committed to warrant her being killed, all the suspect could mutter was that they were just arguing and he got angry in the process.

But residents said that they suspected him of rape attempt which the deceased struggled against, prompting the fatal stabbing. (Nigerian Tribune)
