Chiemelie Ezeobi

Mr. Kayode Eyitayo Oluokun, the alleged lover of late Mrs. Ronke Shonde, who was purportedly murdered by her husband, Lekan, has kept mum even after being fingered in the crisis.

The suspect had on Thursday last week allegedly murdered his wife on the suspicion that she was having an affair with Oluokun.

Popularly known as Alariwo to his friends, Oluokun is the District Manager of Learn Africa PLC, a publishing company at Oba Akran, Ikeja, Lagos.

The Ibadan indigene and University of Lagos graduate just celebrated his marriage anniversary in March.

According to the suspect, his late wife had purportedly confessed to him that she was having an affair with Oluokun, who she fondly saved his number as ‘Eyitemi’.

Shonde had disclosed that the incident began after the wife returned from a five-days trip to Abuja, where she allegedly met up with Oluokun.

When she came back, Shonde said he overheard her talking to her alleged lover, and when he confronted her, she allegedly confessed to such.

All attempts to reach out to Oluokun by THISDAY proved abortive, as his office said he was still in Abuja and they declined to give out his number.

Further search by THISDAY revealed his Facebook profile and a chat message sent to him was yet to be replied as at press time.

Meanwhile, the suspect who is currently in the custody of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba, was said to have refused to eat.

This is just as the couple’s two kids, Temioluwa and Tiaraoluwa, have been taken him to Kwara State to stay in their maternal home.
