“I choked him with pillow, after having sex and Dolapo whom I hired stabbed him to death with a knife.
“I regret my action. I didn’t know it would turn this way,” she pleaded.

She said: ” I hired Oladapo Dolapo to help me kill my husband at my own desire”.
A suspect, Oladapo Dolapo (24), who was engaged by Omotayo, confessed that he actually stabbed the late Salawudeen while Omolayo covered his head with pillow until he died.
He said the wife contracted him to punish her husband by killing him, with a promise to give him whatever he requested, if the operation is successful.
Dolapo disclosed that the deceased’s wife, Omotayo, enticed him to commit the crime by promising him a befitting accommodation and other largesse.

Adeoye further explained that “a team of police directives and patrol men went to the scene, where inscription was found on the wall of the deceased’s house “No Price, No Pay, Aye Axe and Forgiveness is a sin” .
The Commissioner of Police said “Oladapo Dolapo was first to be arrested in connection with the murder of late Salawudeen Hakeem.”
Adeoye said investigation by the police revealed that Omotayo did not only hire Dolapo, but actively participated in killing her late husband, Salawudeen.
