Commercial motocyclist popularly called Okada rider in Lagos is said of have killed himself, his wife and son for alleged infidelity.
Sun reported that the incident occurred at No 12, Obafemi Erija Borokini Road in Aga, Ikorodu at about 6:30 a.m on Friday, and neighbours revealed that Mr Charles Omomo, popularly called Baba Efe, his wife, Mrs Faith Omomo and their three children were all inside the apartment when the incident occurred.
A neighbour who narrated how the Okada rider killed himself, his wife and son over an
alleged infidelity, told The Sun;
“I left home very early as usual with my motorcycle. After some hours, my wife called
me that Baba Efe, his wife and their last child, Glorious were found dead inside their
apartment. On getting home, I saw a crowd in our compound. I entered the apartment
of Baba Efe only to discover he had committed suicide, the wife lay on the floor dead
and the son on the three-seater chair also dead.
“Efe, the eldest daughter went to one of their family members, living nearby to report
the development. On getting there she screamed for help. The dead man used to be a motorcycle rider but a few months ago he stopped working because his motorcycle had developed a fault. The children also stopped going to school but I saw them yesterday and there was no sign of any problem among them,” Salami stated.
Another neighbour disclosed that Omomo and his wife had been having issues in recent times.
“There was a time the husband and wife were fighting and the husband was accusing his wife of infidelity– that the wife must tell him the real father of the son– if not that nobody will be alive among them.
“As you can see, the children and their parents were together at the time of the incident and nothing happened to the two older girls. The mother and son whose matter are in contention were found dead and the father was also found to have committed suicide,” the source said.
Officers of the Rapid Response Squad from Ikeja and Ikorodu are said to have evacuated the body.
