The Police have now identified the man as a married Ogun contractor named Hakeem Oladimeji, who killed his girlfriend before committing suicide in his car.
It was gathered that he struck his girlfriend’s head with a stick during an argument at the apartment he rented for her in Bariga, Lagos, on Monday Feb. 28, then carried her corpse in his car to his house in Ogun state where he dropped a suicide note for his wife.
He then drove himself and his deceased girlfriend to a location close to NASFAT Islamic Centre along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, where he committed suicide by ingesting insecticide.
It is said that they had been there for days before the stench oozing from the car caught the attention of locals.
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident on Wednesday, March 2.
Speaking with DailyPost, Oyeyemi said,
“The two did not die while having sex. What happened was that the girl in question happened to be a girlfriend to that man. He rented an apartment for her somewhere in Lagos. He went there to visit her. We don’t know what transpired between them, but we learnt he hit the woman on the head and she slumped.
“He carried the lifeless body of the woman in his vehicle. People in that neighbourhood ran to Ilaje police station in Bariga to report. But he drove off, straight to his house at Orimerunmu. He dropped a suicide note, informing his wife that he had killed somebody. He told his wife not to bother looking for him, asking her to take care of the children. Then he left the house.
“He drove and parked near NASFAT area and he committed suicide there. We saw a container of Sniper in the vehicle, which suggested that he drank Sniper (an insecticide). He wound up the glasses and died in the vehicle.
“So, it is a case of murder and suicide.”
