A 39-year-old man, Musiliu Owolabi, has been sentenced to death by hanging for killing his lover, Afusat Idowu.
Owolabi, an automobile mechanic, was dragged before the Abeokuta High court for killing his deceased girlfriend in February 2018.
The lead prosecution counsel, James Mafe who is the Director of Legal Drafting, Planning Research and Statistics, told the court that the Owolabi had taken his girlfriend to a hotel situated at Camp area in Abeokuta for pleasure and while they were having their time together, she complained of stomach ache and later started foaming from her mouth.
”The convict took her to his vehicle, on his way he noticed she was dead, and secretly took the deceased to an uncompleted building, dug a shallow grave and buried her without disclosing to anybody.
The convict was arrested when the younger brother of the deceased went to the police station to complain that his sister who told him she was going for a naming ceremony at Bode Olude area never returned.
Upon police investigation, with the help of tracking the deceased phone, it was discovered that the convict was the last person that spoke with the deceased.
On his arrest, he made a confessional statement to the police and took them to where he buried his lover .”
