Opeyemi Adeola, who killed his mother-in-law in Atan area of Ogun State has narrated the reason why he did that, as he alleged that it was a mistake.
While Adeola was talking, he made it known that on Sunday, 25th of April, he was at home with his wife when she asked him if he was going out, as he told her that he wasn’t going out and after some minutes, he saw a man who was on bike giving his wife money and when she returned back into the house, he confronted her and saw that it was N1,500 the man gave her and when he asked who the man was, she told him that the man was her boyfriend and that, she is just collecting money from him and nothing else.
Due to this, his mother-in-law started shouting at him that, she is regretting that she allowed her daughter to marry someone like him and that’s why she wants her to marry another man who will be taking care of her and out of anger, Opeyemi carried his 8 months old baby from his mother-in-law’s house and warned his wife never to return back home.
However, on Thursday, his mother-in-law and his wife’s sisters came to the house and told him that they want to pack her load and as he was about badging in, they held him from the back and started beating, as they accused him of punching their mother and out of anger, he brought out the knife that was inside his pocket, stabbed his mother-in-law on her stomach, as she left his cloth immediately and fell down.
When others saw this, they shifted to the back out of fear and he ran to an uncompleted building in the area and on Sunday when he heard that his mother-in-law has died, he ran to Ikorodu in his father’s house, as it was his father that took to him to the police, telling him that he has committed a serious crime.
