According to the suspect, his wife, Ronke, who had not conceived a child in their 7 year-old marriage, had threatened to deal with him when she discovered that he was having an extra marital affair.

Murder

Ogundele stated this when he was paraded along with other criminals on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, in Ilorin, Kwara State.

The suspect said that he had been married to his wife, Ronke, who had not conceived a child since their 7 year-old marriage.

According to him, when his wife heard of his romantic relationship with the deceased, he threatened to deal with him.

He said, “I have been married for about seven years without any child from my wife, Ronke.”

“After people saw me with Ashinwo, they told my wife stories that were false. That made her (Ronke) to get annoyed and she threatened to deal with me.”

“It was after I stabbed Ashinwo and I saw her collapsing that my eyes became clear.”

“We were very close. We met last year November and things had been going on fine with us. I do not know what made me to kill her.”

“We were friends. She loved me and I loved her as well. I don’t know what came over me.”

A man hunt was put out for Ogundele in 2015, who had been reported to have been avoiding police arrest.

The Kwara State Police Command offered a N50 million bounty for the capture of the suspect.

According to the Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Samuel Okaula, it took the unrelenting effort of the police to capture Ogundele.

He said, “The determination and the doggedness of the command and the need to make him answer for all his criminal activities led to the setting up of a special investigation team with a sole mandate of apprehending him.

“The effort paid off as Ibrahim and other members of his gang: Lukman Oladimeji, aka Zanda, and Akeem Olayinka, aka Student, were eventually traced to their hide out,”

The state police commissioner stated that the suspect will soon be charged to court to face the consequences of his crime.
