Abiodun Idowu has allegedly been admiring the ‘good things’ he could see on his co-worker, Abimbola Hamzat.

He got carried away, and wanted an affair with her.

But Abimbola turned down his many advances, and he could not control his urge.

While he tried to force his way, the woman fought hard to resist and she died in the process.

As a result, Police in Ogun state arrested 40-year-old Abiodun Idowu.

The arrest of the suspect followed a complaint by one Owolabi Moses, who reported at Onipanu Divisional Headquarters, that the suspect, who is a driver in the pure water factory, has been disturbing the deceased, who was an accountant.
