The Ogun State Police Command, Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi in a statement, claimed that Fatai Olugbade had in August, accused the deceased of having extramarital affairs with one Ismail Wasiu.

The statement also revealed that Kehinde packed out of her matrimonial home and moved to Wasiu's, who was living with his wife.

According to the PPRO, "Upon the report, the DPO, Onipanu Division, Bamidele Job, quickly mobilized his men and moved to the Saki where Kehinde was hiding and had her promptly arrested."

"The Femi Olabode-led homicide team embarked on a technical and intelligence-based investigation, which led to the apprehension of the suspect, Kehinde Abdul Wasiu, at Saki area of Oyo State, " the Police spokesman added.

Police preliminary investigation later revealed that the suspect and her husband, in a bid to cover up their track in the dastardly act, initially lied to the deceased woman's family that it was cooking gas that exploded and burnt her. 

"It was after realizing that the claim could not hold water, the assailant's husband told her to take to flight. 

The CP has, however, directed a speedy conclusion of an investigation into the case to charge the case to court as soon as possible.
