By; Bayo Akamo, Ibadan.
A female lawyer with the Directorate of Public Prosecutions in Oyo State is now in Police net in Ibadan over the death of her husband, Late Lowo Oyediran.
New Nigerian gathered that the lawyer, identified as Yewande Oyediran, was arrested on Tuesday over circumstances surrounding the death of her husband said to be France based who was reportedly stabbed to death.
It was learnt that the late husband though based in France had been coming home regularly since he married the lawyer.
According to a family source, Lowo who arrived Nigeria last December to execute a property development job in Nigeria was allegedly stabbed to death by the wife.
Sources close to the family said there are fears by the family that the killing of their son might soon be swept under the carpet considering the fact that the accused worked with the Oyo state DPP.
“She is a lawyer with the Oyo State DPP at the Ministry of Justice. She is also the daughter of an Anglican Venerable in Ibadan. As an employee of the DPP, she could truncate the case. We heard that her family is making efforts to cover up this dastardly act using the state judiciary,” the source said.
Contacted, Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Adekunle Ajisebutu confirmed the arrest of the Lawyer and said the Commissioner of Police in the State, Mr Leye Oyebade, has directed a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the killing of Lowo .
DSP Ajisebutu stressed that the case had already been transferred to the Department of Criminal Investigation of the Command for proper investigation into the alleged murder.
“The CP has ordered a thorough investigation to determine why the suspect, who is a state counsel, allegedly killed her husband. The murder weapon has been seized by the Police. We cannot say much for now until investigation is completed” He said.
