The Ogun state police command has arrested 36-year-old Musiliu Owolabi, for allegedly burying his lover, Fausat Idowu, a mother of five, secretly after she died while they were having sex in a hotel.
Briefing newsmen at the state police command, the state commissioner for police, CP Ahmed lliyasu, said the suspect, a mechanic secretly buried his lover in an uncompleted building at Osara village, off Abeokuta-Ibadan Expressway.
According to the police boss, Musiliu was arrested following a report to the Police by the younger brother of the deceased, Hammed Idowu, that his sister who went for a naming ceremony at Bode Olude area of Abeokuta, was nowhere to be found.
The police immediately began to investigate the matter. The late woman’s telephone call log was profiled through technical and intelligence-investigation and the suspect was the last person that spoke with her.
“On interrogation, the suspect admitted taking the deceased to Rocky Gold Hotel at Iyana-Apakila, Abeokuta, for pleasure, where he claimed she fell ill and later took her in his vehicle, but died under a mysterious circumstance in the car. He further confessed that he took the corpse to a nearby bush, dug a shallow grave and buried it without disclosing same to anybody. This made the circumstances of her death mysterious as well as questionable, which is condemnable. The suspect will soon be arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction.” he said.
Speaking to newsmen, the suspect said himself and the deceased had been dating for six months and that on the day she passed on, both of them were about to “enjoy” themselves when she developed temperature and that he had to take her to a nearby hospital before the unfortunate happened. He claimed it was the first time both of them would attempt to have sex.
“We were just removing our clothes when she suddenly developed a severe temperature and later slumped. It was while I was taking her to the hospital in my vehicle that I discovered she has died. I did not inform the Police or anyone about the incident. I became apprehensive and decided to hide the corpse and later buried her in the midnight.”
The police say the suspect will be charged to court soon.
