The lady accused of setting ablaze her Cairo based husband, Bolu Bamidele, in their house at Koka community in Osun State has been found dead.
Until Friday, Ifeoluwa was said to be on the run and the Osun State police Command launched a manhunt to apprehend her.
But Ifeoluwa’s remains were identified by Bode, an elder brother to her husband at the morgue of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Hospital, Jaleyemi Osogbo, on Friday.
Those sighted at the morgue on the hospital premises where Ifeoluwa’s remains were included her father and some other relatives.
Sources in the hospital told City Round that the deceased was rushed on Thursday evening from another hospital in Ilesa where she was admitted after taking a poisonous substance.
The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, further said, “she (Ifeoluwa) died around 7pm on Thursday. She was rushed in from a hospital in Ilesa after taking a poisonous substance.”
It was also learnt that Ifeoluwa was brought to the hospital by a relation she contacted and revealed her hideout in Ilesa to.
In a suicide note by Ifeoluwa, she denied killing her husband and called on his friends and family to investigate the cause of the death.
The note read in part, “I did not kill your friend. You all know. I genuinely loved him and I still do even to the point of my death. Do findings everywhere, Omobaba and Fourty especially, I am counting on you guys. Boluwatife will appreciate this so much.“
