Lawyer who reportedly killed husband urges court to reject statements

Udeme Otike-Odibi, lawyer who reportedly killed husband, Symphorosa Otike-Odibi, has urged the Lagos State High Court in Igbosere to reject the confessional statements she made to the police.

Forty-eight-year-old Udeme is standing trial for allegedly stabbing her husband to death at their residence on the Diamond Estate, Sangotedo, Lagos State.

According to Punchng.com, the police witness, Olusegun Bamidele, had told the court that Udeme confessed to killing her husband at the last adjourned date on January 23, 2019.

However, when the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions, Titilayo Shitta-Bey, wanted to tender the statements, Udeme’s counsel, Oluseye Banjoko, objected.

Banjoko noted that the constitution made provisions that the statement of any person arrested must be made in the presence of a legal practitioner or must be videoed.

  1. Because she knows the consequence of what she say that is why she’s telling them to reject the statement

  2. I am surprised at what transpired between the two. She knew the nation and what possibly could arise from her act, yet she carried out this dastardly act.

  3. They,should allow her make the confession again in the presence of a legal practitioner and also make a video of it.
