A 45-year-old woman, Aderonke Ayinde, was arrested by men of the Ogun state police command for allegedly dumping the corpse of her lover, Asimiu Abiodun, in the bush.
Police statement said, Abiodun had died after spending the night in Ayinde’s house. The frightened woman had carried Abiodun’s corpse to the bush but was caught by her neighbor who alerted the police.
Sadly, he died inside her house and out of fear of being accused of killing him, Aderonke took his corpse out of her house and attempted to dump it in a nearby bush. However, she was caught in the act by one of her neighbors, Makinde Ishola.
“Upon interrogation, the suspect claimed that the deceased was her long time lover, who used to pass the night in her place, but on that fateful day, he came as usual, but suddenly developed a strange illness in the night and before she could call for help, the man gave up the ghost. She further stated that she decided to dispose of the body out of fear.”
