“Yewande Can’t Hurt A Fly” – Friend Of Ibadan Lawyer Who Stabbed Husband To Death Defends Her
A female lawyer, Yewande Oyediran, who allegedly stabbed her husband, Lowo Oyediran, to death early Tuesday morning in their Akobo residence, is still being held by the police at Iyaganku station, Ibadan, for further investigations.
“Yewande said when she saw that her husband meant business, she made effort to push him off and immediately ran towards their landlord’s apartment shouting for help.
“Lowo, who was running after his wife, collapsed at the entrance to the landlord’s apartment, which was where the landlord met him when he rushed out after hearing the noise,” the friend said.
A source confirmed to the Nigerian Tribune that the landlord told the police at Akobo police station that his efforts to know the cause of the fight between the couple during his first intervention failed, as Mrs Oyediran told him: “Daddy, you can’t understand.”
The marriage would have been three years old on February 9.
“Yewande is someone who can’t hurt a fly; she must have bottled up a lot of things that she refused to share with anyone,” one of her colleagues stated.
Following the development, the family of the deceased in Gbongan, Osun State, had been thrown into mourning.
“we are devastated by the death of Lowo. I was confounded because I could not imagine that Lowo that I spoke with about five days ago could have have his life snuffed out just like that in his prime.“Lowo was everything to the family. He is the bridge between old and the new. He binds everybody together in the family.
He is the comforter. I sponsored him throughout his educational programme in the university.“It is pathetic that I am not going to see Lowo again. Lowo used to tell us that he knew that we don’t have money in our family. He said that if God spares his life, he would put smile in the face of everybody in the family.”
