Ifeoluwa Bamidele, the young woman who made headlines on Sunday, July 17, after setting her husband Bolu's home and the man in Koka village, Obokun Local Government Area, on fire, has died by suicide.
Reports confirm that after learning that Bolu had given birth to a kid with a different woman, Ifeoluwa set Bolu on fire. They had only been married for a few months.
The spokesperson for the Osun state police command, SP Yemisi Opalola, verified this unfortunate incident.
SP Opalola reported that attempts to contact Mrs Bamidele, who first went into hiding in the state of Ekiti, were successful on Thursday after she was able to secure the mediation of a Non-Governmental organization.
When Ifeoluwa revealed that she was in Aramokoko, according to Opalola, she ordered some staff to go collect her from there.
" It was when they picked her they saw she was behaving funny. They asked her what had happened. She confessed that she had taken a poisonous substance before she left Ekiti. We rushed her to WesleyGate hospital. They tried all they could so that she could vomit all the substance. They later discovered that it had been a long that she took it, and it had destroyed her internal organ. That was how she died"©Standard Gazette, 2021.
