According to the 37-year old driver, he killed his boss’s wife, Oyewumi Ayanwale, because he sacked him for no reason after four years of working with him.
Morenikeji Adeyemi was paraded by the Oyo state police command in Ibadan where he made the below confession about how he lured her to her death.
“I was hurt when my boss sacked me. That time, my wife just had her baby and because there was no income anymore, we lost the baby. So, I thought of a way to get back at him, because it was so painful. My boss’s wife had once told me about her spiritual challenges, and I had promised to take her to a place for prayers.
I was able to use that as a premise to lure her and I told her that I was taking her to a place Awe along Awe/Oyo road. We took her car and along the way, she said she was pressed, so she went into the bush, I followed her and strangulated her by the river in the bush. I then took her vehicle and ran away, before I was arrested two weeks ago.”
