House wife kills husband with hot water in Ogun

By Oluwayemisi Oloyede

A housewife and mother of two in Ogun State, identified as Ramota Soliu has reportedly killed her husband, Bello Soliu, at a Fulani settlement located at Iyana Ilewo Orile in Abeokuta North Local Government Area of the State.

It was reliably gathered that Ramota poured hot water on Bello in the early hours of Saturday, and this eventually led to his death.

The woman, whose six years relationship with Bello has produced two kids, was said to have fled her house at the Fulani settlement after the incident.

It was learnt that Bello had on Friday invited some relatives to help in talking to his wife, who he said was fond of starving him and an Arabic student living with them.

The fleeing woman allegedly woke up on Saturday morning, boiled water and bathed her husband with the scalding liquid.

Usman Saliu, a brother to the deceased, said, “My brother has always been complaining about Ramota. She had a habit of starving an Arabic student living with them. Sometimes, she would not serve my brother food too.

“For peace to reign, Bello invited us to talk to his wife. People waded in on Friday, talked to her, but she didn't say anything in response.

“Very early on Saturday morning, she woke up and started boiling water. People thought she wanted to make Amala or Ogi. The water was on fire for like one hour. All of a sudden, we heard a loud noise from her husband quarters where he was sleeping.

“We rushed down to see what was happening, and we discovered that the woman had bathed our brother with the water she boiled. His body was already peeling.

“We rushed him to a hospital at Rounder in Abeokuta, but he was rejected. We took him somewhere else. But he eventually died on Tuesday evening.

Another brother of the deceased, Aliu Soliu, disclosed that Bello had been buried on Wednesday according to Islamic rites.

Aliu stated that the family is searching for the woman, saying “we will get her photo so that people can help us locate her.”

When contacted, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.

Oyeyemi said, he heard the incident being discussed on a radio programme; stating, however, that he was not sure the case was reported to the police.

“I heard the information on a radio programme. I am not sure if the case was reported to the police,” Oyeyemi replied.

He added that the police would investigate the matter without delay.
