BlackBox Nigeria gathered that Yewande, who is also daughter of a respected clergyman, an Anglican venerable was granted a last minute clemency by her then employer, Governor Abiola Ajimobi before he left office in May, 2019.  While this news is yet to filter across the social media, few people in the know have started reacting to this development.

Among those that have reacted is a Twitter user, Ayobami, he tweeted, “Someone killed her husband, used connection to almost beat the charge (got only 7 years) and then used connection to get the outgoing Governor to grant clemency before leaving office. Now she’s free. Stay safe Kings. True life story

BBN further gathered that Yewande who has regained freedom weeks ago may have been whisked out of the country, away from the families of her former in-laws and his friends .
