An Iyaganku Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Monday heard how 61-year-old pastor, Adejare Adebayo allegedly used a sharp knife to cut off one of his wife’s breast in order to stop cancer which affected the first breast from spreading to the other.
Mrs Risikat Adegbule, the 43-year old wife to Adejare who lost her breast to her husband’s ‘surgical knife’ was said to have shouted of pain until she died.
Adebayo allegedly committed the act at Onikankan Village, Ibadan on the eve of Christmas
The Prosecutor, Cpl. Salewa Hammed, told the Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Abiona Richard, though yet to be ascertained, the man was earlier quoted as saying that he cut the other affected breast because his dead wife had earlier suffered cancer in her left breast.
The accused person, however, pleaded not guilty to the one-count charge of murder.
Richard ordered that the accused be remanded in Agodi Prison Custody, Ibadan.
