Adebayo Kingsley who is only 23 years old has been nabbed for murdering his 46-year-old lover, Rosemary Ifeoma and having sekz with her corpse.
According to sources, Adebayo Kingsley, from Ibillo in Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of Edo State, is said to have killed Rosemary Ifeoma by hitting her with a plank.
Rosemary is a widow and mother-of-four fondly called Mama Samuel died instantaneously after she had suffered the hit from Adebayo. Additional reports suggest that Kingsley made sexual advances with her dead body.
The incident occured in Darlington Ogbeifun Street, off Ogbekan Village Road, Ugbor in Oredo Local Government Area, Edo state.
Peter, a resident of the area told Vanguard:
“This woman we popularly called Mama Samuel was a widow with four children and the last one, who is 13 years, stays with her.
“She was having difficulties paying her rent and then approached a woman in the area whose brother was building a storey building that has been roofed, to allow her stay there pending when she can raise money from her business to get a new accommodation.
“She had a lover, who is a bricklayer, that was coming to see her and people around here know them.
“It was early in the morning on July 16 that her 13 years old son, after regaining consciousness from his confrontation with the suspect in the night, ran to inform neighbors of what has happened.
“He was rushed to the hospital for treatment and later narrated the story of how the suspect attacked them.
“He led others to the place where the suspect was working and immediately he sighted the boy, he took to his heels until he was pursued and arrested by the police.”
The suspect admitted to committing the crime however he countered reports that he hit the woman with a log and also slept with her.
He said: “She wanted me to help her with cement to do a caravan.
“But when we did not agree on how to do it, she said I should leave her house. I actually left but missed my way and strayed back to the house.
“But by this time, they had locked the gate, so I jumped into the compound through the fence and entered their room.
“Her son threatened to stab me, went into the room and came back with a knife. I rushed at him and pushed him.
“He hit his head on the wall and collapsed. The woman then came after me and held me, but in trying to push her away, she fell and hit her head on the ground and blood was coming from her head.
“I quickly took the boy to the room and put him on the bed and then left. I did not hit anybody with log and I did not sleep with the woman.”
Kontongs Bello, the Police Public Relations Officer confirmed the incident to Vanguard on Tuesday saying the suspect would be processed for court when investigations are done.
