Akobo Ibadan Husband Killer Yewande Fatoki Flees To London As Ajimobi Uses His Position To Free Her

Nigerian lawyer Yewande Oyediran, who was sentenced to seven years in prison for killing her husband, Lowo, has reportedly fled to London, UK.

Oyediran was in November 2017 convicted for manslaughter by Justice Muntar Abimbola of the Oyo State High Court, sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State.

She stabbed her husband with a knife after a disagreement on February 2, 2016, at their residence in Akobo area of Ibadan.

The disagreement was said to have arisen after Yewande accused her late husband of infidelity.

Sources said the lawyer, after her release in June, headed for London immediately.

After being in prison custody since 2016, Oyediran was granted state pardon a week before the expiration of the tenure of Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State.

Oyediran, who was an official of the Oyo State Ministry of Justice, was among 50 persons granted state pardon by Ajimobi after a committee was set up to look into the petitions of 400 persons who had pleaded for clemency.

Attorney-General of Oyo State under Ajimobi, Seun Abimbola, had said the committee comprised commissioners, officials of the Department of State Services, the police, the chaplain, and the chief imam of the Government House.

Others, he said, were the Legal Aid Council, Director, Legal Affairs; the Solicitor-General; and the Directorate of Public Prosecution.

    Very soon someone will kill Ajimobi’s son or daughter and he will remember Oyelowo needs justice #justiceforoyelowo

    THIS IS most probably to erase a tainted past. She goes to another country where hardly a living soul knows about that blight. She may not even come back to Nigeria again, or at least until a very, very long time elapses.

    TO ANY GOVERNOR OR PRESIDENT BELONGS the prerogative to free prisoners. It is good to, once in a while, conduct this exercise. In its most ideal terms, the beneficiaries are prisoners who have shown true repentance, reflected in their saner and mellow conducts inside the prison. But the genuineness of this exercise has been diluted by the dirty waters of political gimmicks, as names of some highly connected prisoners always find their way into the list, while living out many less privileged inmates who had truly shown repentance, but have no connections to squeeze their names into the gracious list. It is so bad that sometimes this exercise is conducted solely to free a connected prisoner, as the prisoner cannot be freed alone. Hence they conduct a subterfuge prisoners pardon to dowse the noise that the masses would likely make.

    You cannot murder that man and think you will find peace in London. If you think the sorrow you caused the man’s family will be forgotten, then you are a joker and know absolutely nothing about karma. If you like, run to Jupiter, justice will be served by the one and righteous Judge.

      @Iron bar. Who will use this one as a mistress not to talk of for money laundering? she is damn too ugly both at heart and physical. If she can kill her husband in cold blood she can expose you as a money launderer to put you in jail. No sane man will befriend her if he knows the type of person she is. London will not save her, no man will befriend her. She will get married to Aleutian dogs to satisfy her urge.

    We need to fix our broken system. If the victim cannot get justice, if we have 2 tiers of law then, we cannot have a nation. This lady may be smiling her way into UK but she will eventually get punished for his crime.

    She may even declare to his host Country that her life is being threatened in Nigeria, apply for political asylum and get approved for indefinite stay in the UK while the victim family are helpless and robbed of getting justice in Nigeria. All that I can say is, this lady should not have been included in this batch of clemency. 7 years given to her doesn’t match up with his crime. At least she should have been made to serve the entire 7 years. The victim family will continue to feel cheated for her early released.
