A 23-year-old woman,Iyabo Julius, has been arrested by the Ondo State Police Command for allegedly conspiring with her lover, Adedayo Sunday, to rob and kill a motorcyclist, Suleuman Azeez.
The incident was said to have happened in the 12/12 area of Ore in the Odigbo Local Government Area of the state.
Confirming their arrest, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Bolaji Salami, said the deceased was Iyabo’s ex-boyfriend and that she asked the new lover to murder him to make it easy for them to get married.
The police boss said, “One Suleiman Azeez, 25, a commercial motorcyclist, left home for his daily bread with his Bajaj motorcycle but did not return home. His body was later found in a pool of blood around the 12/12 area Odigbo via Ore.
“The case was subsequently transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Akure. Upon discreet investigation, detectives trailed the suspects, one Adedayo Sunday, 25, and Jeremiah Monday, 20, both of Odigbo via Ore, who were arrested where they had gone to sell the stolen motorcycle.
“On interrogation they confessed to the crime and said the former girlfriend of the deceased, one Iyabo Julius, 23, who is now Adebayo’s lover, asked them to rob her former boyfriend of his motorcycle and equally kill him so that she and her new lover could get married.”
The commissioner explained that based on the confession of the suspect, detectives arrested Iyabo.
Salami said all the suspects would soon be charged.
