Olasunkami Oluwole, a 40-year-old married father-of-two, has been arrested by the police in Ondo state in connection with the alleged br#tal m#rder of his sidechic, Biola Soyinka.
The suspect, a mechanic, allegedly invited Biola, who resides in Lagos to his base in Oke Igbo community in Ondo state, on January 3, 2022 and camped her outside his home because of his wife.
Although it’s unclear what transpired between them, Vanguard reports that Oluwole allegedly be#t and str#ngled the deceased to d#ath, after which he called her family to informed them that she has passed away.
According to Biola’s elder brother, Akeem Jinadu, “On the 16th of January we received a call from Oluwole that my sister Biola had passed on.
When we ask what happened to her? He said: Biola became unconscious after she slumped at about 4 am on Sunday 16th of January by the time he rushed her to the hospital, the doctors declared her dead.
Contrary to what Oluwole said when the police arrested him, and we went to identify Biola remains at the morgue, on her body were marks obviously sustained from b#ating. Her neck, face, and body had dark patches because she is a fair complexion. From the state of her corpse it is very oblivious she didn’t die from falling, rather the marks on her body show she was b#aten and str#ngled to death.
We are still trying to raise two hundred and fifty thousand naira for her autopsy as demanded by the doctor.”
