The police may have absolved Mrs. Ebun Bademosi, widow of the late Chairman of Credit Switch Technology, Chief Ope Bademosi, of complicity in the brutal murder of her husband.
Late Bademosi was stabbed to death at his Parkview Estate residence in Ikoyi area of Lagos State allegedly by his cook, Sunday Anani, on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, three days after he was employed.
His killer was on the run but following a manhunt launched for him, he was arrested in Ondo and brought to Lagos for interrogation and prosecution.
Sequel, Mrs. Bademosi was invited by the police giving rise to insinuation in some quarters that the widow had a hand in her husband’s killing, a suggestion the police may have dismissed.
“The woman was invited because she made the initial report at the Ikoyi Police Division. Since she is the complainant, it is only normal for her to be invited to make a statement. As I speak, we don’t have anything on her and she is not being detained.
“The main suspects in custody are the Togolese cook, the person who harboured him in Ondo State where he was arrested, and the gateman of the house. If at the end of investigation the cook is innocent, the appropriate thing will be done. But we will certainly get to the root of the case,” Punch quoted a police source as saying.
