The mother of man burnt to death in Osun State by his wife, Mrs Boladale Bamidele, has said some family members opposed her son, Bolutife, a Cairo-based man to get married to the lady that eventually killed him, but he insisted she was the one he liked.
The wife, Ifeoluwa had on Sunday, July 17 set ablaze Bolutife in their Koka, Osun state home, having suspected him of having an extramarital affair, leaving him seriously injured while she fled the scene before he gave up the ghost at the hospital.
Ifeoluwa also committed suicide afterwards.
Speaking to newsmen, the grieving mother, who said Bolutife was her last child, said Ifeoluwa usually check through her husband’s phone.
She said the couple got married last year September, adding that some members of the family initially opposed Bolutife getting married to her, but he insisted that she was the one he wanted as his wife.
She said, “Apart from her being a jealous type, she was decent as a lady. She was not adulterous. She was able to last that long in our house because she was not involved in indecent acts as a young lady but she used to check through her husband’s phone.
“Whenever she did that after she observed that he was chatting with anyone, even if the person was Bolutife’s elder in the family, she would become jealous.
“That was her only flaw and I used to talk to her to desist from such acts. Some members of the family opposed Bolutife having her as a wife but my son insisted that she was the one he liked.”
