A Nigerian tailor who became enraged after finding her husband sleeping with another woman in their apartment was killed because he didn’t like that she confronted him about it.

According to The Nation report, Rofiat Okewola was at work when she received word that her husband, Oluwole Okewola, was making love to his mistress. When she went home to confront him, he dragged her outside and then smashed her head against a wall, ultimately killing her.

A video that has since been released purports to show the mother of four gasping for air. She then collapsed.

The suspect, a local mechanic, attempted to flee the scene but was stopped by a swarm of people. He was then taken to the Sango-Ota Divisional Headquarters.

“Rofiat was the chief whip of the Tailors Association in this community,” a friend of the victim, Biola aka Dasol told The Nation. “She was also in charge of the preparation for a party that was to be held by the association. I was to accompany her to the market to purchase some items needed for the party last week.”

The friend added: “I rushed to the scene with another mutual friend of ours and met her lifeless body on the ground. Her husband is hot-tempered. She [Rofiat] used to hide her domestic travails from me. However, there was a day I stumbled on a footage on her mobile phone showing her badly brutalized body as a result of the beating meted out to her by her husband, while I wanted to view some trending fashion styles but she only described it as a long story.”

Rofiat was the mother of two children: seven and six, according to Biola.

A chieftain of the tailor association where Rofiat served as the disciplinary officer is now calling for justice to be served.

“I am shocked that Rofiat was killed and the manner of her death,” AbdulHamid Akanji said. “She was a committed chieftain of our association and served as the disciplinary officer of the association. We want her husband to face justice and the consequences of what he did in accordance with the laws of our country.”

He continued: “Until her unfortunate death, she took care of her aged mother among other dependents. Hence her death is a big loss to her entire family. I am seeking the assistance of the public to take care of the little children left behind by Rofiat as there is no one to care for them.”
