Former House of Reps. Member Accused of Killing Wife

Former member of the House of Representatives, Sikiru Busari, have been accused of responsible for the death of his wife.
Members of family of the late wife have therefore petitioned the police to investigate the cause of her ‘sudden death’.
The former lawmaker has repeatedly claimed that his late wife, Oluwakemi Busari, 48, died in her sleep on June 30. Husband and wife lived together at their Ibadan home before her death.
But family members of Oluwakemi are insisting that their daughter did not die a nutaral death and asked Busari to account for it.
The family said the bruises and stains of blood on the body of the deceased made it difficult for them to trust the statement that late Mrs Busari died in her sleep.
According to the petition, the family said the ex-Rep member failed to take the deceased to hospital immediately and did not contact any of the family members.
The former legislator was also said to have procured a death certificate indicating his spouse died of cardiac arrest.
The family claimed their daughter’s body was covered in blanket in the bed until another ambulance took her to Molly Specialist Hospital Morgue in Ibadan, where the mortuary attendants saw the bruises and fresh cuts in many parts of the body with blood dripping.
The petition reads in part, “We were informed by the deceased family that as at Friday 29th June, 2018 there was nothing wrong with their sister (Mrs Oluwakemi Busari), she was in good condition, she was even found in her husband’s office healthy. On the 30th June, 2018 which was a Saturday, she was reported dead. Before her sudden death, she was living with her husband at Aerodrum, Samonda Area. Ibadan.
“Immediately after her death, her husband Mr Busari Sikiru Olayemi did not contact her relatives and explain to them. But one of her extended family heard about the incident and quickly went to the husband’s house. On getting there, he discovered that their sister was already lying dead and covered with a cloth.
“When the husband was asked what was responsible for his wife’s death, he told them that; ‘his wife died a natural death, she just slept and didn’t wake up’. He was then further asked, ‘was there any kind of attack by unknown persons in your house yesterday night?’ He responded emphatically again with a capital No!.
“Surprisingly, when sympathisers and one of the extended family of the deceased uncovered the cloth used in wrapping her dead body, they discovered that there were bruises on some part of her body including her head, with fresh blood on so many parts of her body, which suggests that her death was not natural as the husband claims?
“Photograph of the deceased was immediately taken as evidence that there was more to her death than a mere natural death.
“The families of the deceased are calling for a thorough investigation by the Police and an autopsy to be carried out on their sister’s body to establish the real cause of her death and the perpetrators be brought to book.
“At the time of this petition, Busari Sikiru Olayemi has not notified the deceased immediate family of her death, as her corpse has been deposited at the mortuary.”
Busari represented the Egbada/Ona-Ara Constituency between 2011 and 2015 under the Accord Party.
