Ifeoluwa, wife of Bolu Bamidele who died after the woman set him ablaze on Tuesday in Osogbo, Osun State, for allegedly having a child out of wedlock, has died by suicide.
Ifeoluwa, whose remains have been deposited in the mortuary of the Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Hospital, Jaleyemi, Osogbo, was alleged to have consumed a poisonous substance and killed herself so as to avoid facing the legal penalty for killing her husband.
It was gathered that the woman fled to Ilesha after killing her husband on Tuesday and then contacted some lawyers to help her case.
However, it was learnt that on getting to the address given to them, the lawyers were handed a letter by the woman who suddenly collapsed and died as a result of poison she was suspected to have consumed.
The lawyers were said to have reported the case to the divisional police station in Ilesha after which her corpse was deposited at Jaleyemi hospital, Osogbo.
