A 45-year-old man identified as Segun Omotosho Ebenezer, was on Sunday November 20, arrested by men of Ogun state Police Command for allegedly beating his 42-year-old wife, Omotosho Olubukola to death. 

 

The arrest of the suspect followed a complaint lodged at Kemta divisional headquarters on the 14th of November 2022, by the elder sister of the deceased, who reported that the Olubukola was beaten and seriously injured by her husband over a minor disagreement.

Bukola was subsequently rushed to Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba Abeokuta, by the suspect for medical attention, but gave up the ghost while receiving treatment.

 

Unknown to the husband, the deceased had sent a voice note to her family members, informing them that her husband had used a padlock to hit her on the head while beating her, and that if she died, they should be aware that it was her husband that killed her.

 

As soon as the voice note was played to his hearing, the husband took to his heels having realized that his evil deed had been exposed.

 

Upon the report and the recording evidence, the DPO Kemta division, CSP Adeniyi Adekunle, detailed his detectives to go after the killer husband and fish him out.

 

He was subsequently traced to Akinseku village Abeokuta where he had been hibernating, and was promptly apprehended.

 

Confirming the arrest, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said preliminary investigation revealed that their incessant quarrels was because the deceased built a private school, and her husband who is a carpenter, wanted to take over the control of the school. However, Bukola who was an NCE graduate refused. This was why he continued to abuse her until that fateful day when he used the iron padlock to hit her on the head, which eventually led to her death.

 

Abimbola said the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has directed that the suspect be transferred to Homicide section of the state Criminal Investigation Department.

NTDC boss, Folly Coker”s 2nd Marriage Crashes

Published

on

The second marriage of Folorunsho Coker, the Director-General of the Nigerian Tourism Development Company, (NTDC), to Aisha Rimi, has reportedly crashed.

 

Just when everyone thought Coker’s second marriage to Aisha Rimi, a member of Rimi Partners, an Abuja -based law firm specialising in corporate legal services, business advisory services and government relations, would outlast his first, it ended up making a dry run while it lasted.

 

Coker was first married to Folake Akindele-Coker, the boss of foremost fashion design label, *Tiffany* *Amber* . Folly Coker as he is fondly called, ended the marriage, which produced three children, abruptly. Still dazed by the manner with which her marriage ended, Folake retained her ex-husband’s name and still does to this day. While she is still single, Folly (as he is fondly called) moved on quickly and jumped into another marriage with Aisha. Aisha also used to be married to Lateef Bello Osagie, a sibling of Hakeem Bello Osagie, a former Chairman of United Bank of Africa (UBA). No sooner had her marriage to Lateef ended than she hooked up with Folly and married him. They resolved to give their second attempt at marriage their best shot and make their new ‘partnership’ work.

 

In fact, early in the marriage, Folly and his wife managed to keep the union together, but seeing that they could no longer continue to patch things up, they both finally decided they had had enough of each other.

 

What could have led to breakup of their marriage?

 

Pundits are however of the opinion that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission investigation of Aisha’s alleged involvement in the diversion of the sum of N3 billion from the account of Lagos State Government Number Plate Production Authority, when Folly was the managing director, was allegedly the beginning of the end of their marriage.

 

Recall that the EFCC in an affidavit had alleged that the investigation of the fraud was based on an intelligence received by the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit of suspicious transactions on the account of Rimi and Partners.

 

According to the EFCC, there were “heavy inflows” in excess of N3 billion from LSGNPPA into the account of the company owned by Aisha Rimi, who was still married to Coker at the time.That perhaps,was the catalyst that set the tone for the marriage break up as Aisha was said to have revealed many things to the anti graft body.

Presently, close friends and associates of the family are watching with keen interest what the outcome of this break up will result to.
