The Osun State Police Command has arrested a 32 years old man, Falola Abdulrafiu for allegedly killing a man on his street in the Owode Ede area of Osun State with scissors after suspecting that the victim was having sex with his wife.
He admitted that he actually killed the neighbour but it was not his intention to do so.

In his statement he told the Police that the victim was a cult member in his area, who had been dating his wife and he had reported to one of his superiors in the cult group but he never listened to him. He claimed to have also begged everyone who could speak to him but he never listened.
“In fact, one of his superiors, whom I reported to, told me that he also knew that he was dating my wife and that he had done everything possible to stop him but it was all in vain.
“Later, I went to inform the Baale (traditional leader) of our area and the Baale said that I should bring my mother. So, I went there with my mother and my wife. When we got there, my wife was asked if she was still interested in me and she said yes, but despite that she didn’t give me peace of mind.
“She was coming in late and if I asked her where she was coming from, she would say she was coming from the salon and it had been going on like that for a long time before I decided to tail her.
“On the dsy the incident happened,she didnt come and it was getting late so I called her friends and they also confirmed my findings which made very sad, so I decided to buy liquor from a woman who sells herbs and when I got there I saw my wife and the guy eating from the same plate.
“That was how we started fighting and in the process, I saw a pair of scissors and used it to stab him out if anger, unfortunately, that was how he died.
“I later realised i had stabbed him close to the eye, chest and stomach area, but I never wanted to kill him. In fact, before that day, I had begged him to leave my wife alone. I am not promiscuous and I only love my wife but he never listened” Abdurafiu narrated.
According to Police source, the victim was rushed to the hospital but was dead on arrival and his corpse was deposited at mortuary for autopsy report.
