Mrs. Yewande Oyediran who was allegedly killed her husband with scissors on February 2, 2016 was this morning sentenced to seven years imprisonment by the Oyo State High Court 1, Ringroad Ibadan.
The term is to run from the day of her arrest.
The court which held that although, evidences showed that she was responsible for the death of her husband, none of the witnesses was about to establish the intent of the accused or described seeing her commit the crime.
It however noted that the killing was done without intent going by the fact that the couple were married at the time of the incident.


The accused was alleged to have stabbed her late husband, Lowo Oyediran, on February 2, 2016 at their number 30, Adeniyi Layout, Abidi-odan, Akobo, Ibadan residence, following a misunderstanding that broke out late in the night
Yewande was arraigned on a lone count charge of allegedly killing her husband with knife.
The offence is said to be contrary to Section 316 and punishable under section 319 of the laws of Oyo State.
The accused however pleaded not guilty to the charge when the count was read to her in court.
The Court presided over by Chief Justice Muntar Abimbola who earlier apologised to the court for deferring the judgement initially slated for Friday, said other official engagement at the Nigerian Judicial Commission necessitated the postponement of the judgement till Monday

Noting that the incident was a fall out of a spontaneous fight between the couple, the court said none of the witnesses was able to establish the case of intent in the incident that led to the injury that caused the death.
Justifying the reason for the sentence, the judge maintained that there was no need for a second attack on the deceased as given by the oral evidences of the witnesses.
According to the judge, the witnesses had told the court that there had been an initial attacked where Yewande was said to have stabbed the late husband with scissors but that the matter was settled before the one that led to the death of the deceased couples of hours later.

The niece (name withheld) of the deceased this morning had this to say:
“My uncle and his wife are based in Ibadan, and we are based in Lagos. I was in my office yesterday morning when my boss received a call from my uncle’s personal assistant that Lowo has been rushed to the hospital. I immediately alerted my mum since my dad, Lowo’s elder brother is out of the country.

My mum rushed down from her office to my office and went directly to Ibadan with my boss to see Lowo’s state. Of course he died less than 15 minutes he was rushed to the hospital.

From what the landlord that took Lowo to the hospital said, Lowo and his wife had a little argument between the hours of 10pm-11pm over the issue of going for an official assignment in Germany and France in 2 days time with his boss and finance manager of his company. The tickets has already been purchased. The wife told the husband not to go and there was argument.
She stabbed Lowo on the shoulders and the neighbours intervened. The dispute was resolved amicably. Lowo even took some pictures to send to his business partners in Denmark.

Lowo went to a nearby hospital to get treated then went back home to sleep. She stabbed him while he was sleeping. Police claimed she’s under arrest, but my mum saw her sitted at the reception unguarded. Police were just loitering the hospital environment, but no physical arrest was made.

We want justice. She’s a lawyer, yet she took the law into her hands. Her licence must be revoked. She must pay for her crimes. She would have divorced him instead of killing him if she was tired of the marriage. Plus this Feb will mark their 3rd year marriage anniversary. The couple do not have kids.”
She’s presently detained at the state CID Iyaganku, Ibadan while her husband’s corpse has been deposited at the mortuary. © November 27, 2017
