When the news filtered into town that a man had
pushed his wife into a completely filled pit latrine
resulting to her death, the story sounded bizarre.

The news was the more strange as the couple was
described as friendly and gentle.
Following the development, residents of Agbado,
in Ado-Odo, Ota Local Government Area of Ogun
State have remained in shock. The middle-aged
victim was identified as Rauda Alaraba who met
her fate during a domestic squabble with her

Some residents of the area have continued to raise
posers. What could have prompted the 46-year-
old Surajudeen to throw his wife into the pit
latrine in their rented house?
Was it done to punish her or was it accidental?
The murder suspect was paraded in Abeokuta. The
storey-buildingwhere the incident happened
became a Mecca of sort when the news broke
that Rauda was made to eat feaces after she
entered the latrine before she gave up the ghost.

The marriage of the couple was said to have
produced some children but the husband, it was
learnt, was not gainfully employed and had to rely
on the wife, a petty trader, for sustenance.

Many neighbours of the Alarabas, who spoke on
the condition of anonymity, expressed concern
that the suspect must have been under a spell as
he was never known for violence.
However, Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Mr.
Ikemefuna Okoye, while parading Suraju and
other suspected criminals, at the State Command
Headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, narrated that
the suspect committed the crime at about
7.20p.m. penultimate Sunday.
He said the suspect would be charged to court
after the completion of the interrogation .While
disclosing how the police got the story, Okoye

a man had pushed his wife into a deep pit and we
quickly rushed to the scene where the victim was
metdead in the pit.
"The suspect was immediately apprehended and
we are still interrogating him, he will be charged to
court as soon as we are done with our
investigations". Meanwhile, another couple are in
police net over alleged illegal possession of
firearms. George Dada, said to be an octogenarian
and his 64-year old wife, Sidikat, were also alleged
to be shielding their son said to be on the wanted
list of police.

According to the police, findings revealed that the
couple are parents to a wanted armed robber
suspect, Adeyemi, who was at large.
The police commissioner said that the couple were
arrested following the discovery of some guns and
ammunition hidden in their residence located at
21 Obarinwa Street, Aiyegbami, Ago-Iwoye.

Okoye said, "The DPO of Ago-Iwoye, Stephen
Iriavbijeh, got information that suggested that the
couple's son, one Adeyemi Dada, is a robbery
suspect and he led a team to conduct the search. "

On getting there, the suspect was not seen but,
while executing the search warrant, one cut-to-size
gun, two locally made pistols and 16 live cartridges
