It was gathered that the widow was invited to make a statement following the arrest of the Togolese cook suspected to have murdered her husband.

The father of four, Bademosi, was reportedly found in a pool of blood by his wife.

A police source, however, told reporters that the woman was “invited” after the Togolese denied involvement in the murder.

“We had to invite the woman after the Togolese denied killing him. And she made her statement. Essentially, the statements of the two of them were not different. The woman said she went out when the thing happened and the Togolese confirmed that. All evidence still points to the Togolese cook,” he said.

Another police source at the SCIID said the deceased’s wife was invited because she was the complainant in the case.

The source stated, “The woman was invited because she made the initial report at the Ikoyi Police Division. Since she is the complainant, it is only normal for her to be invited to make a statement. As I speak, we don’t have anything on her and she is not being detained.

“The main suspects in custody are the Togolese cook, the person who harboured him in Ondo State where he was arrested, and the gateman of the house.

“If at the end of investigation the cook is innocent, the appropriate thing will be done. But we will certainly get to the root of the case.”
