Dec 5, 2013 – Akolade Arowolo To Get Death Penalty For Killing Wife

Alleged wife killer Akolade Arowolo, who stabbed his banker wife, Titilayo Arowolo to death in 2011 might get death penalty.

The Director of Public Persecutions, DPP Mrs Olabisi Ogungbesan asked an Ikeja High Court to sentence Akolade Arowolo to death in her final address before Justice Lateefat Okunnu yesterday.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Arowolo, 31, was charged to court for allegedly stabbing his wife, Titilayo, a banker, to death.

The DPP alleged that the accused murdered Titilayo on June 24, 2011 at their residence at No. 8, Akindeinde Street, Isolo, Lagos.

Addressing the court, Ogungbesan argued that the prosecution had proved its case against the accused “beyond reasonable doubt.”

She said, “The evidence have shown that the deceased is dead.

“The only person that was with the deceased before her death at the material time was the accused.”

The DPP said that Arowolo admitted that he struggled with the deceased with a knife, which led to her death and thereafter, escaped from the crime scene.

Ogungbesan said that the pathologist, Prof. John Obafunwa, also testified that the deceased was stabbed 76 times.

She said that Arowolo chose to use a lethal weapon (knife) with the knowledge that death or grievous bodily harm was the probable consequence of his action.

“No other person could have been responsible for the death of the deceased.

“I urge my lord to convict the accused as charged, having proved all the essential ingredients of murder,” Ogungbesan said.

Akolade Arowolo’s lawyer, Olarenwaju Ajanaku has begged the court to dismiss and acquit the accused.

“It is only being suspected that the accused was responsible for the death of the deceased.

“No sufficient facts have been led to prove this suspicion,” Ajanaku argued.

Another court date for the accused will be made known in the future.

  1. @Anointed one : Lol, two years???? I have four cases in both the state and federal courts in Nigeria since 2005! We are yet to get in front of a judge!

  2. WELL, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT ,IF YOU THINK THAT YOUR MARRIAGE IS NOT GOING TO WORK , IT IS BETTER TO WALK OUT QUICKLY BEFORE THE DEMON SLICE YOU INTO SUYA.

    BUT IT WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE , AS YOUR MAMA AND PAPA TOLD , YOU MUST STAY THERE, MARRIAGE IS FOR LIFE , BECAUSE OUR RELIGION SAID YOU SHOULD NOT DIVORCE .

    THIS IS TWENTY CENTURY , WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT THINGS HAVE CHANGED , AND THAT NOTHING LAST FOREVER, MARRIAGE IS A GAMBLE,IT IS A DANGEROUS GAME,
    IF YOU WANT TO STAY MARRIED FOR LIFE , YOU WOULD NEED TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT AND STOP COMPLAINING TOO MUCH.

    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO POKE YOUR MOUTH INTO EVERYTHING YOU SEE ABOUT YOUR HUSBAND HAVING SECRET NOOKY WITH YOUR NEIGHBOURS. BECAUSE YOU WILL BE THE LOOSER, YOU MAY DIE OR BE IN JAIL FOR LIFE.

    THEREFORE , YOU ARE THE LOOSER. YOU ARE DEAD NOW , GOODBYE, PLEASE HELP ME SAY HELLO TO MY GRANNY. HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  4. sometimes, there are some stories I will hear , it will look like fairy tell. A man who claim to love your wife, all of a sudden develop hatred to the wife that will make him murder her, too bad.

    • YOU DEVELOP HATE , WHEN YOU POKE YOUR NOSE TOO MUCH ON THINGS, MARRIAGE IS A DANGEROUS GAME , PEOPLE CREATE PROBLEMS FOR THEMSELVES AS SOON AS YOU GIVE THEM THE CHANCE IN YOUR LIFE, STARTING FROM , WHEN YOUR PHONE RINGS , OH MAY I KNOW WHO YOU ARE TALKING TO , OH , YOU THINK I DO NOT KNOW WHO WAS CALLING YOU , YOU ARE A WHORE , I KNOW THAT ,IT WAS ONE OF YOUR SECRET NOOKY.

      ALL THESE ATTITUDE WAS THE ONE GENERATE TO HATE , WHEN YOU ARE NOT AT PEACE WITH YOURSELF.

      YOU FAILED TO REALIZE THAT THIS STRANGER YOU CAME ACROSS HAVE FAMILY , HAVE FRIENDS , NEIGHBOURS , WELL WISHERS , CHURCH MEMBERS , WORKMATES,

      MAY I KNOW WHY , YOU SHOULD STOP GREETING PEOPLE YOU KNEW , ALL JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE A HUSBAND OR WIFE.

      SOME MEN STOPPED THEIR WIVES FROM GOING TO WORK , JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE NOW MARRIED, WHY???, BECAUSE THE HUSBAND WAS THINKING, OH, IF SHE GO OUT THERE , SHE IS GOING TO HAVE A NOOKY ,AND TURN HER INTO A WHORE .

      THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR WILL DESTROY YOUR MARRIAGE SOONER.
