POLICE in Ondo
state weekend said that
the 45 year old hunter,
Ojo Toki, who shot dead
his wife, Adesewa, over a disagreement on his
breakfast in Ibule Soro
area of the state has
been arrested and will
soon be charged to court
for murder. The suspect, who is in
detention in Igbara-Oke
police station is a staff of
Ministry of Agriculture in
Igbara-Oke. He allegedly
shot his wife on the neck at close range with a dane
gun. Police image-maker, Wole
Ogodo, told Vanguard in
Akure that the suspect
had been arrested and
the case transferred to
the Criminal Investigation Department at the state
police headquarters,
Akure, for further
investigation. Vanguard gathered that
the suspect, who in the
morning of the ill-fated
day had a disagreement
with his wife, angrily left
for his hunting expedition only to return to vent his
anger by shooting the
deceased. The couple it was learnt
have been separated for
the past one year over
another disagreement
that led the wife to pack
out of their matrimonial home to live in her
younger brother’s house. That dispute was said to
have been settled by
families of the couple only
for the husband on the
fateful day to visit where
the deceased was staying to request for a
breakfast. The deceased who was a
cleaner at the Federal
University of Technology
Akure, FUTA, was said to
have disagreed with the
suspect on what she should prepare for his
breakfast. Narrating the incident to
newsmen, the daughter of
the deceased, Olamide,
described her father as a
troublesome man which
made her mother to pack out of his house and
settled with her younger
brother’s wife over a
year ago. According to Olamide,
“part of the settlement
process agreed upon by
both families was that the
deceased should be
preparing food for her husband at her brother’s
house. “My father always come
to our house to eat in the
morning and at night but
my father just complained
that mummy refused to
give him food a day to the incident which was
resolved and she later
cooked the food for him at
night before he later went
out for hunting and we
also went to sleep. “That morning, my father
came back from hunting,
he and my mum sat down
in the sitting room
discussing. I left them and
went to my room but all of a sudden I had a gun shot
and when I got to the
sitting room it was my
mum that I met on the
floor in a pool of her own
blood. She was died.” Meanwhile, the police
spokesman in the state,
Ogodo, said that the
corpse of the deceased
had been deposited at the
state SpecialistHospital, Akure. Investigation into the
matter, according to him,
