Femi, the alleged second lover of the married woman found dead inside a car in Lagos, Promise, alongside another lover, Lukmon Olowu, is dead, The Eagle Online is reporting.
The two married lovers were discovered dead behind the Nigeria Institute of Journalism in Lagos on October 29, 2017.
Promise and Olowu were found dead inside the man’s Toyota Corolla car.
In the heat of the deaths, Lukmon’s younger brother, Idris Olowu, said his brother was not into any relationship with Promise.
Idris said his brother was murdered.
He said the target of the killing was Femi, Promise’s lover, said to be a Disc Jockey.
At that point too, Femi acknowledged that he must have been the target.
Idris said: “On Saturday evening, Lukmon and about six of his friends went to a birthday party at Obawole, Iju area.
“After the party, Lukmon used his car to drive many of his friends to their residences, including Promise.
“She also attended the birthday.
“Promise later called and pleaded with Lukmon to take her to her friend’s place around Excellence Hotel, located at Ogba.
“We understand that she called her husband, telling him that she would spend the night at her friend’s place before she called and asked Lukmon to drive her there.
“The next thing we heard was that police called us that our brother was dead, that they had found Promise and Lukmon dead inside his car.
“We heard they were found naked.
“We all went to the police station to confirm the information.
“Before the police drove the car to the station, they took pictures of their dead bodies.
“We saw a picture of our brother, naked, and his two legs raised and placed on the dashboard, while the dead woman was half naked.
“She was sitting beside him at the front seat.
“Her head rested lifelessly on the car seat headrest.
“I can swear with my life that my brother didn’t have anything to do with Promise.
“He was a responsible man, married with children.
“He didn’t take alcohol.
“I learnt that woman was dating a guy called Femi.
“Promise’s husband, Clement, had warned the guy several times to stay away from his wife.
“Even when the incident happened, the same Femi came to tell us that the trap was meant for him.”
Idris further disclosed that Promise lived close to a beer parlour.
It was alleged that many people knew the late woman.
Idris further said: “She called her husband that night that she would spend the night at a friend’s place.
“It was not the first time Lukmon had used his car to convey Promise and other people to different places after parties.
“The woman always goes to parties with youths living in the area because she was a friendly type.”
Idris recalled that when they got to the police station on Sunday, Promise’s husband, Clement, said the dead person should have been Femi and not Lukmon.
Idris said: “To my surprise, when we got to Area G Police Command, Promise’s husband said that he thought it was Femi that died.
“Even Femi’s phone was brought out from Promise’s handbag by her husband.”
Femi, impeccable sources told The Eagle Online died on Tuesday in Obawole area of Lagos State.
He was said to have been ill for “some time”.
Since the incidence, the Lagos State Police Command is yet to come out with the autopsy report as promised.
