A youth pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Akolade Arowolo, has been sentenced to death by hanging for the murder of his banker wife, Titilayo.
A pathologist Prof. John Oladapo Obafunwa, who provided the autopsy, revealed that Titilayo, who worked with Skye bank, was killed through 76 knife stab wounds.
The Herald reports that Arowolo’s co-tenant, Adewale Adeyemi also gave evidence in the case. Justice Lateefat Okunu of the Ikeja High Court handed Arowolo a death sentence after evidence before the court proved that Arowolo actually murdered his wife in their matrimonial home.
Immediately after the judgement, Arowolo fell down in the dock and started shouting “Jesus have mercy”, before bursting in prayers.
