Chaos As Family Of Female Lawyer Who Killed Her Husband And Husband’s Family Clash
Remember the woman lawyer, Mrs Yewande Oyediran, who allegedly stabbed her husband, Oyelowo Oyediran, in Ibadan, well yes, another tragedy befell her as this time, not only her, but her family and her deceased husband’s family.
Both sides of the family clashed within the premises of an Ibadan Magistrate Court after the arraignment of the accused in an Iyaganku Magistrate Court. This came as warders smuggled the accused out of the court premises in a blue Primera car other than the prison van they used to bring her and other accused persons to court.
After waiting fruitlessly for journalists to leave the court premises so she could board the prison van, the warders had to push other accused persons into the waiting van and sped off. However, Saturday Vanguard gathered that another exit was prepared for Mrs Oyediran, who was taken out of the court in a private car. This, they did to act according to the dictates of the family of the accused who insisted that her photograph must not be taken.
The drama got to climax as a man, who is sympathetic to the accused person passed an uncomplimentary remark at a bereaved woman, who was crying all along. This infuriated the family members of the deceased who were trying to suppress their bottled anger. This turned everything chaotic.
While in court, her counsel, Abimbola Oluwaseun, who led a retinue of lawyers to the court, said in his oral application, that his client should not be remanded in prison custody having gone through so much trauma. But his plea did not make any impact on the Chief Magistrate, K.Y Durosaro-Tijani who said, “it is beyond me. I have no jurisdiction to do so.”
The magistrate then ordered her to be remanded in Agodi Prisons, Ibadan.
