According to Mr. Tajudeen Adedapo Salami, the landlord of the couple â€œSodiq came home drunk at night on Wednesday, the day his wife was arrested.
â€œI quickly ran to lock the door so that he cannot escape, because I knew he intended to pick his property and leave the house.
â€œI made a call to the policemen at Olosan Police Station who responded promptly and arrested him.â€
P.M.NEWS gathered at the police station Sodiq said he was not aware that his wife killed her baby adding, â€œI did not even know she was pregnant. She always told me that her big tommy was because she had fibroid.â€
