Ogun police arrest 47-year old farmer for stabbing wife to death

The Ogun state Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, has directed the transfer of the case to the Force CID in Abeokuta.


The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 47-year old farmer, Gbenga Ogunfolabo, for allegedly stabbing his 45-year-old wife to death in Ishara town of Remo North Local Government Area.

The command’s spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed the incident to PREMIUM TIMES in Abeokuta on Tuesday, said the murder occurred on July 16.

The couple were engaged in a physical altercation when the husband stabbed the wife with a broken bottle.

“The incident had occurred on 16 July but no one reported the case to the police as the families concerned wanted to sweep the matter under the carpet as a result of the pressure mounted on the deceased’s family by the family of the suspect,”Mr. Adejobi said. “But one of the relations of the deceased decided to report the matter to the police for thorough investigation before the police arrested the suspect.”

He disclosed that the couple had eight children but lost two of them to sickness and that the husband, who is a farmer, had been maltreating the deceased, a petty trader, before he eventually stabbed her to death.

He said the Commissioner of Police, for the state, Ikemefuna Okoye, had directed that the matter be transferred to the Department of Criminal Investigation, Eleweran, Abeokuta for further investigation.

The commissioner also advised the general public to always report cases of this nature or any other crimes to the police to enable records or statistics of crimes committed in the state be taken and to allow justice have its way.

“The Commissioner of Police has also assured the general public of the command’s commitment to making sure that every case reported to the police would be adequately investigated with a view to restoring lost confidence and trust in the minds of the public,” Mr. Adejobi said.
