How Man Killed Wife, Self Over N.1m

A 41-year-old man, Mr. Joseph Ajasa, stabbed his wife, Toyin, to death over misappropriation of N1000,000, which he gave her to keep.

The trouble started at their Iyana-Ado Road residence in Owode, Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun State.

Ajasa fled the scene of the fight only for his dead body to be found five days later inside his farm dangling from a tree.

According to a neighbor, who pleaded anonymity, Ajasa had received over a N100, 000 from a thrift cooperative and kept it in his wife’s possession. When he asked her for it some weeks later, she could not produce it. She reportedly told him she had used the money to treat a health condition that arose after a recent beating he gave her.


Her explanation was said to have infuriated him and a fight ensued.

Another neighbour said that the couple was fond of fighting each other and when the last fight broke out, they all thought it was one of the usual.
