June 1st, 2015 – Man Murdered Wife, Commits Suicide In Owode Yewa Ogun State

Tragedy struck recently at Iyana-Ado Road in Owode, Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun State. A 41-year-old man, Mr. Joseph Ajasa, shocked the community when he stabbed his wife, Toyin, to death during a fight.

As soon as he committed the act that afternoon, Ajasa took to his heels before neighbours arrived at the scene. Five days after, the man’s dead body was found inside his farm dangling from a tree.
Ajasa, who was also a hunter, took his life around Agueyo farm, near his hometown – Ajilete village, about six kilometres from Owode town. Ajilete is two villages away from Idi-Iroko, a border town with Benin Republic.

The man was said to have killed his wife with a knife, leaving the weapon in the woman’s body as he ran into the bush to commit suicide. It was gathered the police evacuated the woman’s body from the scene a few hours later, along with the knife that was still stuck in her thigh.

Hear what the family of the deceased said;

“When my sister called me that afternoon of May 14 and informed me about the incident, I thought I was daydreaming until I got there and saw a crowd of sympathizers in their house. It is sad and the entire family is mourning.

“It is something I cannot explain till date. It shook our family and we are still asking what could have led Joseph to kill his wife and also take his own life. I knew him well because we grew up together. He was not somebody that could kill a fellow human being for whatever offence committed against him. He was a gentleman that always minded his business. That is the reason I am shocked and confused about how everything played out. The two incidents were more of mysteries.”

A neighbour who wouldn’t want his name in print told the reporter that the husband had received over a N100, 000 from a thrift cooperative and kept it in his wife’s possession. Some weeks later, when he requested for the money, his wife could not produce it. When the late Ajasa inquired further, the woman reportedly told her husband that she had spent the money to treat a health condition that arose after a recent beating she received in the hands of her husband.

  1. My questions is do they have children? i knew money wil be the main cause of the whole show. Reading and getting close to the end I kept thinking what was the reason until I saw money. It is the route of all evil in this our world of today.

    If that was the reason why did the woman not begged him for part of the money to use for health condition. I do not think he would have refused. Women women sometimes we can push our husbands to do nonsense. Then we blame men. In every situation please women pray over your husbands not by force.
