Nollywood Actor Daniel Iyamu Murdered By Wife While Sleeping

Nov 9, 2011 Nollywood Actor Daniel Iyamu Murdered By Wife While Sleeping

A Benin-Based Nigerian actor, Daniel Iyamu has been murdered by his wife, while sleeping on Tuesday the 8th of November 2011

The sad incident occurred on Tuesday at their Agonse Street, Ugbihoko quarters in Egor local government area. And according to family source, Iyamu was found dead in a pool of his blood on his bed after neighbors forcefully broke his door open.

According to sources, that his children cried to neighbors that their father was yet to get up at about 10am, which prompted them to break the door.

Daniel Iyamu was then found with heavy injuries on his head which suggested that he might have been hit on the head with a sharp object while asleep.

One of the children of the late actor, Faith, a student of Federal Polytechnic Auchi, told journalists that their mother has been suffering from suspected mental illness, which their father has been treating since last year.

The wife was later found unconscious in another room in the house, and was revived before she was taken away by the police who prevented angry residents from lynching her.

The wife has reportedly made statements to the police amidst tears, saying that she hit her husband with a pestle which led to his death.

When contacted, acting spokesperson for the Edo State police command, ASP Ahwara Ejiroro confirmed the incident but promised to provide further details later.

May his soul rest in perfect peace.

Who are we to blame for mental disorder now?

    A tragedy indeed. If that woman is really mad then nothing could be held against her. A through investigation is therefore needed to ascertain that fact. That blood-curdling, cold-blooded murder could not be perpetuated by a sane person.I knew a similar case where a class-mate of mine killed his young brother due to insanity.

    RIP my very dear friend, Daniel. You were an honorable man, always smiling, intelligent, trustworthy, ready to attend to any one any time, always available, truthful, never seen you looking sad, helpful, a career civil servant,family oriented, etc. I know your wife have been sick for over 17 years. But why now? What a gentleman. Daniel Iyamu, you will always be remembered by those who know you and those who watched your movies. You were one of my best friends. You will be missed.

      @ Oviasogie, u have spoken so well about ♍y Dad!!!!! He is the best Dad in the world, he was everything to us ,he was a pillar and a mentor to us ,he showed us life and taught us how to live it , ♍y ever smilling Dad I miss you greatly and wish u did not have to go that way! It was only at the point that you would have sat down to enjoy thee fruit of your labour that this unfortunately incident happened: u will forever be in our hearts! @ all , we should pray not to see evil , “ONE OF ♍Y COUSIN leaving with us Faith Iyamu confessed just after ♍y fathers burial that she is a WITCH that she killed ♍y father spiritually because ♍y father(Daniel Iyamu) burried her own father Broadricks Iyamu like a goat and was angry and wanted to pay him back but that she used his wife because she was the closest person to him” and Faith is someone that he was just trying to give a bright future by staying with him!!! Indeed the spiritual controls the physical, so always watch and pray.
