Woman Kills Friend, Attempts Poisoning Husband

A 38-year-old mother of two, Esther Irawo, who is a resident of No. 6 Sule Street, Wera Estate, Ikorodu, Lagos State, has allegedly killed her friend, Femi Afolabi, 38, in order to conceal her adulterous life.

Irawo was said to have accused Femi, of informing her husband that he saw her with another man in a hotel and allegedly threatened to deal with him for trying to ruin her home.

The deceased’s father, Adeyemi Afolabi, a 72-year-old retired soldier, said he heard Femi shouting from his room that Irawo was trying to strangulate him, but added that nobody cared to inquire what was going on because of the level of their friendship.

He added that long before Femi brought Irawo and her husband into the house, they had been friends.

The deceased’s mother, Rose Afolabi, said Femi never discussed the issue with Irawo’s husband, adding that somebody else might have done that.

She said the suspect made real her threat by killing her son on Saturday.

It was learnt that Femi let out a room to Irawo and her husband in the family house when they had accommodation problem a week before he was murdered.

Irawo was also alleged to have earlier attempted to take the life her 31-year-old husband, Ezra Joseph, by poisoning his food.

Punch Metro learnt that when Irawo served her husband the food, she sat somewhere watching him, but when the man did not eat it, she became confrontational.

It was gathered that she cursed the husband before pouring away the food and dropped their baby on his lap as she fled the house.

Joseph alleged that his wife had been living an adulterous life, adding that he had traced her to different bars and hotels within Ikorodu on several occasions.

Joseph told Punch correspondent that Irawo thought Femi was the one who reported her extramarital affairs to him, adding that apart from few instances when he got to know by himself, other people in the area also told him about her adulterous life.

He stated, “I went to her shop to take my child to a barbershop. While in the barbershop, I saw her walking past. I called her to tell her that I was in the shop with the boy and that when we were through, I would return the child to her. She asked me to take the child to her brother as she would be going somewhere to see a friend.

“When she was going, I followed her but she kept looking back; each time she looked back, I hid myself until I traced her to a hotel that is located in a hidden place.

“I met a policeman, who advised me not to confront her but that I should take a bottle of beer, while waiting for her outside the hotel. I did as he advised. Fifteen minutes later, I saw her coming out of the hotel. I told the policeman to look at her. He advised me not to confront her so that I would not commit murder.”

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Elkana Bala, confirmed the incident.

He said the police were on the trail of the runaway Irawo.

“We have a report of a woman, who allegedly hired thugs to kill her landlord’s son, Femi Afolabi, for telling her husband that he saw her with a man in a hotel. The woman has been on the run since that day. The police are investigating the matter and are on the trail of the woman,” Elkana added.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
