The life story of Olakitan Balogun came to a tragic end when he was killed by the husband of his alleged lover , Ajibade Olumuyiwa .
Olumuyiwa had suspected that Balogun was in a relationship with his wife , Titilayo Olayiwola, and reportedly caught them on Sunday, March 17, 2019 in their ( the couple ’ s ) room.
The couple lived on Doland Estate , Ajuwon , in the Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State.
Olumuyiwa was said to have hit Balogun ’ s head against the wall and the man bled to death .
The reports gather on Thursday , March 21 , 2019 that Olumuyiwa had been arrested by the police .
At the state police headquarters , Eleweran , Abeokuta , where he was being held , Olumuyiwa gave his own account of the incident during an interview with our correspondent .
The suspect , who said he did not intend to kill his wife ’ s lover , explained that he was trying to make a video of his wife and the deceased .
He said a fight broke out while Balogun was struggling to collect the phone he was using for the recording from him .
He stated, “ I never had the intention of killing the man my wife was committing adultery with. All I wanted to do was to catch them red – handed and make a video of it , which I intended to send to my wife ’ s family .
“I did not have any intention to fight . It was the guy that attacked me and during the tussle, I mistakenly pushed him and he hit his head against the wall .
I was even the one that took him to the police station .
The police asked me to take him to a hospital .
“ I did not know my wife had another lover until the security guard in our estate informed me that whenever I was not around , a man came to meet my wife in the house .
I asked my wife about it but she denied it . ”
Olumuyiwa also denied allegations that he had earlier abandoned his wife , adding that he was performing his role as a husband contrary to his wife ’ s claims .
“ I am a music producer . I have been doing that for about four years.
Due to the nature of my work , I sleep over at the studio sometimes when I have a lot of work to do .
It is not true that I abandoned her for eight months as was widely reported .
“ Although we had some misunderstandings, I did not abandon her .
I would always go home to check up on her and my children whenever I had the chance, ” he said .
In an interview with Saturday, the estate ’ s security guard , Kazeem Gafari , confirmed that he was the one who told Olumuyiwa about his wife ’ s alleged adultery .
Gafari said , “ When I noticed that a guy used to come and sleep with Olumuyiwa ’ s wife whenever he was not around, I called Olumuyiwa to inform him about the development .
“ He told me to call him when next I saw the man in his house .
So , the day the man came in the night , I called him to inform him of Balogun’ s arrival .
“ I did not see anything wrong in giving him the information .
I felt bad when the police came to arrest me .
I really regret my action.
I want to appeal to the government to assist me .
If I come out of this problem , I will never repeat such again . ”
Meanwhile , Titilayo denied the allegation that she was in a relationship with Balogun .
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi , had said that the suspect was arrested at about 1 . 45am, following a distress call received by the Divisional Police Officer of the Ajuwon Police Division .
