The Ondo State Police Command announced on Wednesday its intention to apprehend Mrs. Tayelolu Solomon, a middle-aged woman, for her alleged involvement in the death of her husband, Mr. Felix Solomon.
Reportedly, Tayelolu struck her 67-year-old husband with a pestle while he was asleep at their residence in the GRA area of Ondo town, Ondo State, last Saturday. This tragic incident followed a series of ongoing conflicts within the couple’s relationship.
Ibukun Solomon, the deceased’s son and an eyewitness to the incident, confirmed that his mother had used a pestle to strike his father’s head while he slept and subsequently fled the scene, noting that the couple had engaged in a heated argument a few hours prior to the incident.
He narrated, “My mother killed my father with a pestle in my presence and took to her heels. She used the pestle to hit his head when he was asleep.
“Earlier on the fateful day, a minor argument had ensued between them that resulted in a fight. After the fight, my father went to lie on the chair and my mother hit his head with the pestle.
“He became unconscious in the process and fell down from where he was sleeping. My mother used the pestle to hit my father’s head three times and he later died.
“When my mother saw that my father was already unconscious, she hid the pestle at the back of our house and ran away. I alerted some of the residents, who rushed my father to the hospital.
“But he later died. His corpse has been deposited at the morgue. My mother had three children for my father and I’m the last child.”
Mrs. Funmilayo Odunlami, the State Police Public Relations Officer, has verified the incident and stated that the command intends to apprehend the suspect shortly. She further mentioned that the deceased was promptly taken to the hospital but sadly passed away.
“The incident happened last week when the couple had a fight but the suspect is currently at large. We are already on her trail,” the PPRO stated.
