A few weeks ago, Promise died alongside, Lukmon Olowo, believed to be her lover, inside a Toyota Corrola car behind the headquarters of the Area G Police Command, Ogba, Lagos State.
They were both partially unclad. It was reported that Lukmon and Promise died in the car after making love. Many, including Promise’s husband, knew that Femi, a married man with kids, was having an affair with his wife. When Lukmon died, members of the community where Promise and Lukmon resided, claimed that Promise’s husband said that the death was not meant for Lukmon. The husband reportedly said that Femi was the target.
Although Femi escaped death then, it was not for long. Femi, a father of three, went to an RCCG event at Bintu Street, two weeks ago for a service. He was said to have collapsed inside the church after he bent down to pick something. When Femi’s father heard of the incident, he made a beeline for the hospital and asked that his son be discharged. He reportedly told the hospital: “What ails my son is not a medical issue.”
In an interview, a resident said:
“I suspected that Femi’s death was caused by Promise’s husband, who had before the first incident, warned Femi several times to stay away from his wife. In fact, when the first incident happened, Femi told some of us that the trap that Lukmon fell into, was meant for him.” .
The late Lukmon’s brother, also said: “
When the incident happened, Promise’s husband said that he thought it was Femi who died.
We were still at Area G Police Command when Promise’s husband brought Femi’s phone out of his late wife’s handbag. It was then we knew that the late Femi was dating Promise.”
