The Ondo State Police Command at the weekend said the 45-year-old hunter who shot dead his wife, Adesewa, over a disagreement on his breakfast in Ibule Soro area of the state has been arrested and will soon be charged to court for murder.

Ojo Toki, who is in detention in Igbara-Oke police station, is a staff of Ministry of Agriculture in Igbara-Oke. He allegedly shot his wife on the neck at close range with a dane gun.

Police Public Relations Officer, Wole Ogodo, confirmed the arrest, adding that the case had been transferred to the Criminal Investigation Department at the state police headquarters, Akure, for further investigation.

According to sources, the suspect, who in the morning of the ill-fated day had a disagreement with his wife, angrily left for his hunting expedition only to return to vent his anger by shooting her.

Sources close to the couple said they have been separated for more than a year over another disagreement which led the wife to pack out of their matrimonial home to live in her younger brother’s house.

That dispute was said to have been settled by their families although they continued living apart. The husband on the fateful day visited where the deceased was staying to request for a breakfast.

The deceased who was a cleaner at the Federal University of Technology Akure, FUTA, was said to have disagreed with the suspect on what she should prepare for his breakfast.

The daughter of the deceased, Olamide, sadly narrated the incident to newsmen, describing her father as a troublesome man, which made her mother to pack out of his house and settle with her younger brother’s wife over a year ago.

According to Olamide, part of the settlement process agreed upon by both families was that the deceased should be preparing food for her husband at her brother’s house.

“My father always come to our house to eat in the morning and at night but my father just complained that mummy refused to give him food a day to the incident which was resolved and she later cooked the food for him at night before he later went out for hunting and we also went to sleep.

“That morning, my father came back from hunting, he and my mum sat down in the sitting room discussing. I left them and went to my room but all of a sudden I had a gun shot and when I got to the sitting room it was my mum that I met on the floor in a pool of her own blood. She was dead.”

Police PRO in the state, Ogodo, said that the corpse of the deceased had been deposited at the state SpecialistHospital, Akure, while the command continues investigation into the matter.
