Woman Jailed For Killing Her Husband, Pardoned By Ajimobi Relocates To the UK

A legal practitioner, Yewande Oyediran, who was sentenced to seven years in prison for killing her husband, Lowo, has reportedly relocated to the United Kingdom.

Recall that Oyediran was in November 2017 convicted for manslaughter by Justice Muntar Abimbola of the Oyo State High Court.

She stabbed her husband with a knife after a disagreement on February 2, 2016, at their residence in Akobo area of Ibadan, Oyo state

The disagreement was said to have arisen after Yewande accused her late husband of infidelity.

There are reports that the lawyer, after her release in June, headed for London immediately.

Oyediran has been in prison custody since 2016 and was granted state pardon a week before the expiration of the tenure of Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State.

Oyediran, who was an official of the Oyo State Ministry of Justice, was among 50 persons granted state pardon by Ajimobi after a committee was set up to look into the petitions of 400 persons who had pleaded for clemency.

Attorney-General of Oyo State under Ajimobi, Seun Abimbola, had said the committee comprised commissioners, officials of the Department of State Services, the police, the chaplain, and the chief imam of the Government House.
