A Lagos High Court in Ikeja has sentenced to death Akolade Arowolo for the murder of his banker-wife, Titlayo, who he repeatedly stabbed to death at their residence in Isolo on the twenty fourth of June, twenty eleven.

Justice Lateefat Okunnu in her judgment today held that even though there was no eyewitness to the incident, the circumstantial evidence adduced by the prosecution had proved the murder charge against the convict beyond all reasonable doubt.

Justice Okunnu relied on the testimony of the forensic pathologist, Professor JOHN Obafunwa, who testified that there were at least seventy-six stab wounds on the deceased.
