Checking your partner’s phone can cause murder-suicide – Shehu Sani warns lovers
A former Senator, Shehu Sani has advised couples not to go through their partner’s phones to avoid catastrophic endings.
He gave the piece of advice in a Friday tweet.
Sani, who is a sociopolitical commentator, recalled two recent instances of reported murder-suicide of a couple linked to going through their partner’s phone.
The Herald recalls the case of an Osun State housewife, Ifeoluwa Bamidele, who was accused of setting ablaze her Cairo, Egypt-based husband, Bolu, in their house at Koka community in Osun State in July.
Ifeoluwa, who later committed suicide, reportedly killed her husband after going through his phone and finding transaction details of a huge amount of money made by the deceased and suspected he was involved in infidelity.
In a similar case in Suleja, Niger State, one 45-year-old husband, Adeniyi Jose reportedly murdered his wife on suspicion of cheating before killing himself.
In the Monday incident, Jose went through his wife’s phone and supposedly found evidence of her infidelity.
This led to a quarrel and he allegedly strangled his wife, Chioma Gloria Ibeh, before ingesting an insectide.
The Ondo State indigene was said to have been rushed to hospital where he later died.
Sani advised against going through a partner’s phone.
“In Osun, Ifeoluwa searched her husband’s phone and they both died by suicide and murder.
“In Suleja, Niger state, Adeniyi searched his wife’s phone and they both died by suicide and murder.
“The lesson: avoid searching your woman or man’s phone so that you can live longer,” he wrote.
