Ifeoluwa Bamidele, the housewife who set her husband, Bolu, ablaze in their home in Koka village, in Obokun Local Government Area of Osun State on Sunday, July 17, has reportedly committed suicide.
It was reported that Ifeoluwa set Bolu on fire after she found out he welcomed a child with another woman. Their marriage was barely a year old.
This tragic development was confirmed by the spokesperson of the Osun state police command, SP Yemisi Opalola.
SP Opalola said efforts to reach Mrs. Bamidele who initially went into hiding in Ekiti state yielded results on Thursday after she was able to get a Non-Governmental organization to mediate.
Opalola said Ifeoluwa opened up that she was in Aramokoko and she then instructed some personnel to go and get her from where she was.
”It was when they picked her they saw she was behaving funny. They asked her what happened. She confessed that she took 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 long since she took it and it had destroyed her internal organ. That was how she died”
