FAMILIES of a woman lawyer, Mrs Yewande Oyediran, who was accused of killing her husband, late Oyelowo Oyediran and that of the deceased, yesterday, clashed within the premises of an Ibadan Magistrate Court after the arraignment of the accused in an Iyaganku Magistrate Court. Mrs Oyediran allegedly stabbed her husband to death after a domestic fight on February 2, 2016. This came as warders smuggled the accused out of the court premises in a blue Primera car other than the.....
prison van they used to bring her and other accused persons to court. After waiting fruitlessly for journalists to leave the court premises so she could board the prison van, the warders had to push other accused persons into the waiting van and sped off.
It was reported that the drama got to climax as a man, who is sympathetic to the accused person passed an uncomplimentary remark at a bereaved woman, who was crying all along. This infuriated the family members of the deceased who were trying to conceal their bottled anger. The atmosphere soon became chaotic as other sympathisers were making frantic efforts to prevent a serious confrontation.
The deceased, Lowo Oyeniran, was a property manager who lived in Grenoble, France, but who also visited his wife in Nigeria regularly since they got married three years ago. He was allegedly stabbed by Yewande, a state counsel with the Department of Public Prosecution, Oyo State, after a disagreement early morning on Tuesday. The couple had no child.
The presiding chief magistrate, Mrs Kehinde Durosaro-Tijani, also adjourned the case to February 16. Presenting the suspect before the court, Inspector Amos Adewale preferred one-count charge against the accused, which she pleaded not guilty to.
