A 38-year-old mother of two, Esther Irawo, who is a resident of No. 6 Sule Street, Wera Estate, Ikorodu, Lagos State, has allegedly killed her friend, Femi Afolabi, 38, in order to conceal her adulterous life.
Irawo was said to have accused Femi, of informing her husband that he saw her with another man in a hotel and allegedly threatened to deal with him for trying to ruin her home.
The deceased’s father, Adeyemi Afolabi, a 72-year-old retired soldier, said he heard Femi shouting from his room that Irawo was trying to strangulate him, but added that nobody cared to inquire what was going on because of the level of their friendship.
He added that long before Femi brought Irawo and her husband into the house, they had been friends.
The deceased’s mother, Rose Afolabi, said Femi never discussed the issue with Irawo’s husband, adding that somebody else might have done that.
She said the suspect made real her threat by killing her son on Saturday. Read more
