The police in Ekiti State have arrested a man, Pastor Abidun Oluwadare, for allegedly killing his pregnant wife, Tosin Oluwadare. 

Sources said that the man, popularly known as ‘Araina’ (thunder of fire), strangled Tosin to death allegedly for ritual purposes at about 9pm on November 19, 2023.

A source said, “The man killed the wife, but he was telling us another story when the matter came to the fore. He told us that when he arrived at his house that evening, he asked to have sex with his wife but left her when she refused.

“He said he came back to the room about five minutes later to find her dead. Is this story plausible? No, it does not add up. Police investigation will reveal everything.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Sunday Abutu, said the suspect had been arrested and transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.

“The man was arrested and the case has been transferred to the state CID. Investigation has since begun,” the police spokesperson said.
