According to Justice Abimbola, the evidence tendendered against the defendant by the couple’s landlord and his wife confirmed that Mrs Yetunde was guilty of murder an was then sentenced to seven years.

Having seen the defendant holding a knife and the defendant had earlier confirmed that she had earlier stabbed her husband with a pair of scissors a day before, I hold that it was the defendant that stabbed the deceased,’’ said the judge.
