More details emerge on the woman that stabbed her husband to death

 
Last night we published the story of a wife/lawyer, Yewande Oyediran, that reportedly stabbed her husband, Lowo, to death (HERE)..well. new details have surfaced.

The husband resided in France, but had been coming home regularly since he married Yewande.
A family source, who is a brother
to the deceased, said the husband was into property development and had
come home in December 2015, to execute a job in Nigeria.
The family source told Punch newspaper
that the family feared that apart from losing Lowo, the case might also
be lost because the suspect worked as a counsel at the Directorate of
Public Prosecutions.
“She is a lawyer with the Oyo State DPP
at the Ministry of Justice. She is also the daughter of an Anglican
venerable in Ibadan. As an employee of the DPP, she could truncate the
case. We heard that her family is making efforts to cover up this
dastardly act using the state judiciary,” he said.
The Public Relations Officer, Oyo State
Police Command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, said the Commissioner of Police in
the state, Leye Oyebade, had ordered a thorough investigation into the
case.
He added that the matter had been
transferred to the Department of Criminal Investigation of the command
for proper probe into the alleged murder. He said the suspect had been
arrested, but had not spoken to investigators.
Ajisebutu said, “We received the report
this morning (Tuesday), but information is still sketchy. The CP has
ordered a thorough investigation to determine why the suspect, who is a
state counsel, allegedly killed her husband. The murder weapon has been
seized by the police. We cannot say much for now until investigation is
completed.”
A government official, who did not want
to be named, said the state was aware, adding that at the appropriate
time, a statement would be made.
