By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan.
An Oyo State Chief Magistrate Court sitting  in Ibadan on Monday remanded a 61 year old Pastor of an Ibadan-based Church Adejare Adebayo at Agodi prison custody over the death of his wife.
According to the prosecutor, Mr. Sunday Ogunremi in a charge sheet read to court, the Pastor allegedly cut off his wife Risikayat Adegbule  breast with knife at Onikankan Village, Ibadan, on December 24 2016.
The prosecutor alleged that after cutting off the left breast of the 43 year old, the woman reportedly suffered excruciating pains from the wound before she finally died after a few days.
“That you Pastor Adejare Adebayo on December 24, 2016 at 12:00 a.m. at Onikankan Village, Ibadan, did unlawfully cause the death of Rukayat Adegbule, 43, by cutting her breast, thereby committed an offence contrary to section 316 and punishable under vol.11 sec. 319 of the criminal code cap ix Vol. 11 of the Laws of Oyo State.”
The prosecutor stressed that the Pastor claimed that he cut off the affected breast because his wife suffered cancer in her left breast.
The 61 year old Pastor however pleaded not guilty to the one-count charge.
Chief Magistrate F. Richard while adjourning the case till February 14 then ordered that the Pastor be remanded at the Agodi Prison.
