Ex-Ondo Military Administrator’s Son Killed as He Drank in a Joint with Friends

Ex-Ondo Military Administrator’s Son was Killed by gunmen on Wednesday evening as he was drinking in a Joint with friends in Lagos.

The deceased, Muyuwa Babafumilayo Okpaleye, 40, a son of former Ondo Military Administrator, Brig.-Gen. Okpaleye was shot by the hooded armed men, numbering about four, at a drinking joint at Adekunle Kuye, off Ikate street, Aguda, Surulere, where he was hanging out with his friends.

According to reports, the gunmen parked their Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) at an adjoining street and followed a footpath that led to the drinking joint. As soon as they sighted Okpaleye in the crowd, two of the men readjusted their hoods and advanced towards the gathering.

On seeing the movement of the hooded men, the crowd, including a relation of a former Lagos Governor, the gathering dispersed with people running in different directions.

They were said to have aimed at Okpaleye, shot him and came closer to ensure he was hit by the bullet before fleeing the scene.

All of Okpaleye’s friends allegedly abandoned him, save for one identified as Kunle, who ran back to save him.

He was said to have lifted him up, taken him to his (Okpaleye’s) Honda City Sedan car and rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors confirmed Okpaleye dead on arrival.

Unfortunately for Kunle, the Police at Soloki Station, Aguda invited him for interrogation. He was eventually detained and moved to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) Panti as a suspect.

Opa, as Muyiwa was popularly called, is the last born in the noble family of one time military administration of Ondo state, Rtd Brigadier General Okpaleye.

Opaleye worked with a sporting outfit called City Sports and lived at Ajose Adeogun Street, Victoria Island, but frequented Surulere where he had a lot of friends.

His friends have taken to social media to mourn his death.

Homicide detectives at SCIID have commenced investigation to unearth the culprits. Also, Okpaleye’s friends who were at the joint are being trailed to get their account of the incident.

A source told The Nation that Kunle was being held because no one has corroborated his account of the incident, adding that there was need for others present at the joint to come forward and state the facts.

It was learnt others who were there might have gone into hiding for fear that the assassination might be cult -related, giving the recurring gang wars within Surulere that has seen two other persons killed in similar manner since last December.

 Groom slaps his bride at their wedding reception

 Groom slap his bride at their wedding reception

A groom slapped his bride at the wedding reception today and a Twitter user has taken to the platform to narrate how shocked she was after witnessing the scene.

The Twitter user identified as @MmantiUmoh noted that one doesn’t owe violent people love, said the incident was witnessed by the groom and bride’s parents including other family members. She revealed that it left her not wanting to attend weddings for some time.

The Twitter user wrote;

At the reception today, the groom slapped the bride so hard for one second I thought a helium balloon had burst. While we were taking 10 Seconds to recover from the shock… “Angel”; Please let’s march in ****is tired and under a lot of pressure, let’s please just go in and start the reception, everyone is waiting.

The only thing you owe violent people is to see and respect their humanity in ways they refuse for others. But you are not required to see their anger as acceptable. You don’t owe violent people love — ever. It’s not love.

And maybe it’s worthy of note that even the best man asked angel “what did you do to him, why is he upset?” Well, the mc called and music roared and everyone walked in like nothing had happened. Couple danced from the entrance to podium. Cycle of domestic violence begins.

 

Please don’t ask me what I did. I did absolutely Nothing! Their parents witnessed the slapping ceremony…. some of their family members did too. I went home. I had a migraine. I don’t want to attend any weddings for a bit again. I will send my gift.

For those who insist on living with domestically violent partners. Well, I imagine God doesn’t rejoice over a marriage ending, but do you think God is okay with you being abused and living without love? Do you believe it’s possible that God might hate that even more?

Kenyan man and side chick

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Kenya, have arrested a 38-year-old married man over the brutal murder of his girlfriend.

 

The suspect, Evans Karani is accused of murdering 25-year-old Catherine Nyokabi in Witeithie area, Juja in Kiambu County.

Juja Sub-County Directorate of Criminal Investigations Officer (DCIO), Richard Mwaura, who confirmed the incident on Friday, April 16, said the suspect attempted to discard Nyokabi’s body on Wednesday but his efforts were thwarted by mud.

While transporting Nyokabi’s body in his car, Karani’s vehicle got stuck in mud on Bob Harris road in Juja, forcing him to flee, leaving the body and car behind, the DCI said.

Police, who arrived at the scene following a report by locals, verified the car ownership from the National Transport and Safety Authority’s Registrar of Motor Vehicles.

 

A hunt for Karani was, consequently, launched by a multi-agency team comprising police, DCI officers and the agency’s Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau (CRIB) officer

 

On Friday morning, April 16, detectives, via phone signal, tracked down Karani to his rented house in Githurai Kimbo area, where they arrested the suspect.

 

The authorities said Nyokabi’s body had been burnt using a corrosive chemical.

 

“She was badly disfigured. Besides the burn injuries, she had bruises on the face and head. It appears she was tortured before being killed,” a detective told The Standard.

 

Authorities said the suspect confessed to killing Nyokabi, a hotel worker in Kahawa Wendani, following a bitter conflict, which they had been embroiled in for the past two weeks.

 

Karani, who is married, reportedly told police Nyokabi was his secret lover.

 

The deceased’s father, Gitonga Njogu, told The Standard that initial reports suggested his daughter, the first born in a family of four children, died in a road accident.

 

“On Facebook, certain people were claiming my child was killed in a car crash in Juja. However, when we got to see her body at the City Mortuary, we were shocked. The visible injuries clearly indicated Nyokabi’s cause of death was not a road accident as had been alleged,” said Njogu.

 

“My girl (Nyokabi) was hard-working, cheerful and very loving. Her future was promising,” said Njogu while attempting to balance a tear in his eyes.

 

The old man said Nyokabi had, in the past, introduced Karani to him as her suitor.

 

“I knew them to be lovers. Just like in any other relationship, they had differences, which I would help them iron out. Two weeks ago, my daughter said she and Karani had broken up. I told her, it was okay; she shouldn’t cling onto a relationship in which she was unhappy. That was the last time I heard of the suspect.”

 

Karani will be arraigned on Monday, April 19, when detectives would seek to detain him longer to allow for investigations to be completed.
