Real estate agent dies in Ogun hotel after sleeping with ex-wife
50-year-old real estate agent, Diran Elijah, died after having sex at a hotel in the Agbado area of Ogun State with his former wife, identified simply as Idowu, who he reportedly separated from about four years ago.
It was gathered that Idowu has remarried with two children for her new husband.
According to PUNCH, the ex-couple reignited their love affair lately when Elijah contacted her on the phone and they agreed to meet at the hotel around 10pm last Sunday.
After a pleasant time in bed with Idowu, Elijah suddenly became unconscious, started gasping for breath and reportedly gave up the ghost at the hotel.
PUNCH reported that a resident of the area, identified only as Afolabi, said that the incident caused anxiety in the neighbourhood, adding that police from the Agbado division visited the scene.
He said, “The owner of the hotel initially wanted to lie that the man slumped outside and died. But the woman (Idowu) confessed that they had sex and afterwards, the man complained that he was tired and wanted to rest. After some minutes, he went unconscious. She called for help but the man couldn’t make it. I later learnt that they were once married to each other but lost contact after going their separate ways. They recently got talking again.”
The aforementioned publication said a source close to the woman (Idowu) said, “They were ex-lovers. They had two children together as a couple but the kids died. They later divorced and remarried respectively. She obtained a loan from a microfinance bank and could not repay it. The bank sealed a house where she resides with her current husband in Ifo and she was sleeping in a church.
“Elijah contacted her and promised to give her money to repay part of the loan. He died after they had sex. The police arrested her but the man’s family said they were not interested in pursuing any case against her.”
Another source privy to the incident said, “The woman was his wife and they had two children together. They divorced about four years ago. The woman remarried and her current marriage has produced two children. The man has also married another woman and has a child. He recently took his wife to his hometown in Ilesa (Osun State).
“He got the former wife’s phone number and requested that she visit him. They went to the hotel and after having sex, he became unconscious. He died before they could move him out of the hotel. His body had been taken to Ilesa. The family said they were not interested in any court case. It was a case of sudden and unnatural death and the suspect has been released on bail.”
The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident stated that the two families had resolved to settle the matter amicably.
