A 45-year-old landlady simply identified as Mrs Folasade, has been arrested for allegedly killing her tenant, Mrs Omolola Oladipupo during a scuffle in the kitchen.
During the scuffle at the house located at Taotao Street location, Lotogbe in Ondo State, it was alleged that Folashade struck the deceased on the head, leading to her death. It was gathered that the fight ensued after Folashade accused Omolola of walking across her pot in the kitchen.
The deceased’s husband, Mr Ikudabo Oladipupo who disclosed that his wife was confirmed dead at a hospital she was rushed to, described the incident as “unfortunate”.
“I was inside the room when I heard the voice of my wife and our landlady. I heard my wife saying she wanted to pass and that the landlady should move her pot away from the pathway to the kitchen, but my landlady said she would not move the pot.
“She told my wife to pass somewhere else. So, as my wife wanted to pass by the side of the pot, my landlady held her and pushed her away.
“Before I would come out of the house, my landlady had pushed my wife on the floor. When I saw her condition, I quickly rushed her to a hospital where she was confirmed dead”
The state police spokesperson, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami said investigations had commenced on the case.
