Ekiti State University undergraduate Beats Wife To Death Over Money


A 400 level student of the Department
of Public Administration at the Ekiti State
University, Ado-Ekiti, Mr. Danusa Jimoh,
has allegedly killed his wife, Mopelola,
during a brawl.

The couple, whose relationship is
blessed with a child, were said to have
got married in 2008 and they had
consistently been at each other’s throat
for various reasons.

Danusa was said to have engaged
Mopelola, who hailed from Ipoti-Ekiti, in
a fisticuff on July 3, over an argument
which arose as a result of preparations
toward the burial of the deceased’s
parent.

The deceased, who was obviously
overpowered by her husband, was said
to have fallen and hit her head against a
stone and became unconscious. Efforts
to revive her failed and she later died at
a hospital.

The Commissioner of Police in Ekiti State,
Mr. Sotonye Wakama, who briefed
journalists about the case, said the
couple lived at 1, Idemo Street, Are-Ekiti
in Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Government
Area. He said, “the command has
arrested Danusa Jimoh aged 34 years, a
native of Okeyi, Okene, Kogi State, who
allegedly murdered his wife, Mope
Ojuade, on July 3, 2012.”

The commissioner said the command
was awaiting the autopsy report on the
deceased from the Ekiti State University
Teaching Hospital, where the corpse
was deposited.
