This story is bizarre and shocking at the same time.
The man pictured above is Lowo Oyediran popularly known as Ajanaku. He is a Grenoble, France based socialite who came home for Christmas in December. He is said sto have been brutally murdered by his wife Yewande Oyediran nee Fatoki, at their Akobo estate home in Ibadan in the wee hours of yesterday Feb. 2nd.
Yewande is said to be a lawyer and a Staff of Directorate of public prosecution at the Ministry of Justice, Ibadan, Oyo state. She is also the daughter of one honourable Fatoki.
According to some sources, Yewande stabbed her husbands throat with a knife while he was sleeping. She was said to have stabbed him that same night around 7pm after a fight and he had gone to the hospital. He was treated for the stab wound on the right shoulder and it was stitched. After the treatment, he was sedated and went home to sleep around 9pm. But things got even worse. In the early hours of the morning while he was sleeping and still weak from the effect of the drugs he had taken, she is said to have stabbed him in the throat. She then locked the door, refusing to initially call for help. She also ignored an already weak Lowo’s pleas for help. Later, at her own time, she came out and started screaming for help, but it was too late. Lowo was found in a pool of his own blood and died few minutes later. She is said to have been the main aggressor and suffered no injuries.
Other sources, mostly Yewande’s friends however give a slightly different account of the story. They say that Lowo was allegedly stabbed after a domestic dispute at their home bordering on infidelity and that Yewande suffered dislocated shoulders, swollen head and a bruised body. As a result she was taken to the hospital for treatment where she was treated and later discharged then arrested by police. She’s presently detained at the state CID Iyaganku, Ibadan.
A family source on the other hand said that the dispute between the two was because Lowo was going for an official assignment in Germany and France with a colleague and had bought his tickets for 4th pf February. His wife told him not to go and a fight ensued. The fight was then resolved by neighbours and he went to a nearby hospital to get treated. He came back sedated and then while asleep, his wife stabbed him in the throat. The Landlady helped in getting to the hospital but he didn’t make it.
Lowo’s corpse has been deposited at the Adeoyo general hospital mortuary and his friends are mourning him on social media. They are saying that Yewande’s family is claiming that she is mentally unstable and want to use that as a defence to exonerate her of the crime, and are crying out for justice. The also say that Lowo was a gentle man incapable of violence or battering a woman and that Yewande has been know to threaten him with sharp objects at the slightest provocation. He is also said to have just won a huge contract worths millions from a British firm.

There are many grey areas in this story, and with different allegations and counter allegations, only God knows what truly happened that night. But to stab to death a man who is your husband? That really is something to ponder on.
