How My Sister Was Killed By Husband, Brother Of Slain Nigerian Nurse

By Bukola Kayode

The family of a former ophthalmic nurse at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Taiwo Owoeye, who was found dead in her home in Suffolk, United Kingdom, have taken turns to mourn her.

News of the late nurse’s death was shared across the social media by her family and concerned individuals who took turns to condemn gender based violence which is on the increase among Nigerian couples living overseas.

The late nurse’s brother, Alex Owoeye, who mourned her passing on his Facebook page alleged that David was declared the only suspect after an investigation carried out by the police.

His post read, “This is to officially announce the painful exit of my dear sister, Nurse Owoeye Taiwo Morenikeji, married to Abodunde David Olubunmi of Ipoti Ekiti.  According to the Suffolk Police in the UK and the available documents and records sent to us via mail and direct conversations from the UK Police, after thoroughly conducted investigations, despite being caught in the act, he (the husband) was declared the sole murderer of his wife (my sister).”

Owoeye explained that the three children of the couple were currently being taken care of by the UK social services.

He however called on family members to keep calm while assuring them that justice would be served in due course.

Yet another family member, Opeyemi Owoeye, took to Facebook to say, “She was killed by her own very husband (Abodunde Bunmi David), no peace for the wicked. Justice for Owoeye Taiwo.”

Reacting to the news of her death, another Facebook user, Olabanji Fabiyi, described it as heart-wrenching.

He wrote, “The recent tragic news of Taiwo Owoeye Abodunde murdered by her husband in Suffolk, United Kingdom, is profoundly heart-wrenching. Although myself and Taiwo were not that so close, her late dad and my late dad were childhood friends and her mum and mine are also good friends, all from Igogo Ekiti. Considering her upbringing, it seems improbable that any provocation from Taiwo warranted such a brutal act as strangulation. Also, the audio clip of what transpired between them prior to the untimely death is a pointer to the animalistic, barbaric and untrained husband she had.”

The couple got married in 2016. However, the late Taiwo relocated to the UK in 2022 and was later joined by her husband earlier this year.
