May 31, 2016 – Oshodi Wife Killer Is An Unemployed Drug Addict Who Accused Wife Of Adultery – Family Members Speak

Days before he murdered his wife, Roselyn Sogei’s husband Jafaru had serially assaulted her on the grounds of being unfaithful. Apart from the infidelity allegation, he reportedly beat the mother of five for collecting gifts from her relatives for the upkeep of the family.

The son of the deceased, 16-year-old said that he could not explain what came over his father to have committed the act, saying he started behaving strangely afterwards.

I shone a flashlight on her and saw blood on the bed with a wide cut in her neck. I fainted when we discovered she was dead. We later asked dad how it happened, he said somebody entered and did it whereas the compound gate is always locked in the night.

It was mum that took care of us. She was the one sponsoring my elder brother, Collins, who just gained admission into a university in Abia State. I don’t know our fate now.

The landlord of our former rented house on Michael Street sent us out because dad always quarrelled with mum. We were also sent away from Banjoko Street for the same reason,” he said.

The aunt, Veronica Imomoh, who confirmed the assault, said she was surprised the woman did not scream during the attack.

She added,

“Our family had warned him to stop beating her. He didn’t have any work and she was the one feeding him and paying the rent. Anytime she collected gifts from her relatives, he quarrelled with her. He would accuse her of sleeping with men and beat her up. There was a time he took her to our village in Edo State to swear whether she was cheating on him or not and she did.

“Yesterday (last week Thursday) he demanded N10,000 from the wife, saying he wanted to travel. She was trying to raise the money from her friends. But I don’t know whether that was the immediate cause of the incident.”

A neighbour, Simeon Nnoron, said he had tried to prevail over Jafaru to stop assaulting the deceased to no avail, adding that he suspected he was on drug and wanted to use the woman for rituals.

Roselyn’s elder sister, Mrs. Kate Yakubu, said she had wanted to divorce the husband two years ago but was enjoined to rescind the decision. She said,

“They fought two years ago because he wanted her to stop selling the frozen foods. During the argument, he held her in the neck and removed strands of hair from her head with his teeth. She left the house for a week to live with his brother in Masasa. She wanted to quit the marriage but we begged her not to because of the children. There was a time he said he smelt sperm in her pants after she returned from Seme where she normally bought goods.”

    This is very bad. The family of the woman killed her. Why must you advice her to stay in the marriage she’s bn abused? Now the children will definitely take care of themselves.

    A lazy man who cannot do anything in the house always behave like this, i wonder oooo. You can’t pay rent, children school fees, feed your family or even yourself and you are acting like a wizard! You will rot in jail for killing that woman gradually, you subjected her in many pains before you finally killed a gold heart like that.

    This woman’s family caused her death. just hear you talk, that you people (her family members) advised her not to quit the marriage because of the children. A man that chopped off the head of his daughter a year ago? and also tried to kill her (the wife) on several occasions, to the extent of the goat you people call humanbeing removing the woman’s hair? you the family members sent this woman to the grave. Once a man is jobless, they become so violent that they suspect every move the wife makes. They would feel jealous at everything the woman does, some would even start having stupid suspicion that their wife is going out with her own blood brother.

    This woman’s family members caused her death. Hear you talk, that you her family members adviced her not to quit the marriage because of the children A man that chopped off the head of his own daughter a year ago? once a man becomes jobless, they become so violent that they can even kill their own mother. The wife that has decided to work very hard to save her marriage and family becomes the first victim. Even if she enters the toilet, such men would surely pick up a feud that the woman went to meet another man, or that she is dating her own blood brother.

    Pls dont just kill this man. Before they place him on life jail, do me a favor.
    1) cut off his right hand from the shoulder.
    2) cut off his left leg from the tigh. So that even in his dream, he cannot be able to kill a single fly again before he finally die.
    Cursed soul.

    This man doesn’t deserve anything than to give him death parole in a wheel chair or on daily basis let him gradually suffer by burning his manhood, one of his eyes should be shut,then from one side of his body pour acid on it and put him in isolated room finally let him roteen and finally burn him.
