Husband Arrested For Planning With Another Man to Kill His Pregnant Wife

Eluyera Wasiu, a 35-year-old man, has been detained by Ogun state police command for allegedly plotting to murder his 29-year-old pregnant wife.

The suspect and his accomplice, Adeniyi Samuel, were apprehended after the DPO Ogijo divisional headquarters received a distress call from concerned members of the public on January 1, 2022, stating that the two men were engaged in a very serious physical combat in the oponuwa area of Ogijo, and that if they were not apprehended quickly, there would be bloodshed.

Following the distress call, CSP Muhammed Baba, DPO Ogijo division, dispatched his troops to the spot, where the two culprits were soon apprehended.

During questioning to determine the cause of the altercation, Adeniyi Samuel revealed to the police that Eluyera Wasiu had hired him to murder his pregnant wife, Bola Taiwo. He went on to say that Eluyera Wasiu offered to pay him N10,000 for the job, of which he had already given him N5,000 and would pay the remaining after the job was completed.

DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, a spokeswoman for the state police command, confirmed the occurrence, saying that preliminary investigation revealed that Wasiu Eluyera was married to Bola Taiwo but they divorced due to irreconcilable disagreements. Wasiu afterwards married another woman, with whom he is currently living.

”Somehow, he met with his former wife and they started going out together again which resulted to pregnancy. In order not to upset his new wife, Wasiu asked Bola Taiwo to terminate the pregnancy but the suggestion was rejected by Bola Taiwo. Having tried all he could to abort the pregnancy to no avail, Wasiu Eluyera decided to eliminate the woman and the pregnancy.

In his confessional statement, he stated that he had twice bought food for her from one eatery and laced the food with poison, but the lady by providence did not eat the food. It was when all his personal efforts to kill her failed that he contracted Adeniyi Taiwo to help him eliminate her. He confessed further that, he personally took Adeniyi to the woman’s house, and he gave him her picture for easy identification.

But when he didn’t carry out the assignment as agreed, he demanded for the refund of the advance payment he made to him, and his refusal led to the fight which eventually led to their arrest,” Oyeyemi said.

The police spokesperson added that the state Commissioner of police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered a full-scale investigation of the case with the view to arraign the suspect in court as soon as investigation is concluded.
