pass on Monday at the Surulere residence of a banker, Bimbo Ajetumobi
Daniju and her gospel singer husband Olalekan Idowu Daniju when the
woman allegedly took a knife and sliced her husband's penis during a
Bimbo, staff of a new generation bank in Lagos was said to have
accused her husband of not taking care of her and their only child,
Opeoluwa. The husband disagreed and while fighting, Bimbo allegedly
seized her husband's penis and sliced it with a knife. Bimbo denied
using a knife but her fingernails to teach her husband a lesson on how
not to treat a woman. The ugly incident happened on Monday at their
Falolu Street, Surulere home.
The matter was reported to the police at Surulere station and the
woman was arrested. In her statement to the police, Bimbo denied using
a knife on her husband's penis but her fingernails.
She was later released on bail when her husband insisted that he was
not interested in pressing charges against her.
Trouble started on 16 December when the banker who is a staff of the
Agege Motor Road branch of the bank, accused her husband who has just
returned from the church, of failing to provide for the needs of the
family and leaving her to do everything. She also accused him of being
selfish and uncaring.
She reportedly shouted at Olalekan who was eating and when he didn't
answer, poured his plate of food on his head. She took a bucket found
in the room and smashed it on his head. This resulted in fighting.
Their neighbours separated them and Olalekan went to his sister's shop
to seek refuge but not done yet Bimbo allegedly followed him there and
threatened to stab him with a broken bottle.
Relatives and neighbours, it was gathered, intervened and pleaded with
the couple to give peace a chance but the couple continued to live
like a cat and mouse.
Madam Kehinde Daniju, sister of Olalekan told P.M.NEWS that when her
brother ran to her for help, she had to call their mother and other
relatives to settle the matter for them in the family house they
She explained that Bimbo's mother who also lived around the area came
and told her daughter not to accept reconciliation until Olalekan got
a job. She blamed the couple's constant disagreement on Olalekan's
refusal to get a job.
When she was leaving she took along the couple's only son, Opeoluwa Daniju.
This did not go down well with Olalekan who ordered his wife to go to
her mother's house and bring his son before 8 p.m. or there would be
It was said that Bimbo left the house before 8 p.m and returned 30
minutes later without Opeoluwa.
This resulted in another round of fighting during which neighbours and
relatives intervened again to separate them.
Narrating his story, Olalekan said he woke her up on Sunday to ask
what she would be wearing to the church so that he could iron it but
she didn't reply.
" I picked up my son's cloth, ironed it, bathed him, had my bath and
left both of them at home and went to church. In between the service,
I came home to check on them and I met her cooking, I even joked that
thank God there's something for them to eat.
"I went back to church and after the service I was I hungry I bought
bread and beans to eat and as I got inside, my boy told me he also
wanted to eat bread and I gave it to him.
When she learnt that I gave the boy bread, she said I didn't bother to
ask her where she got money to prepare the rice that she ate and she
started calling me several unprintable names.
"I responded again and this time it was a huge mistake. She just came
near me, carried the plate of beans and pour the food on my head. She
held my tie shouting and cursing me at the same time. I managed to
extricate myself from her grip and ran out. She nearly suffocated me
with the tie. She pursued me and broke a plastic bucket on my head but
I continued to run. She picked up a bottle, broke it and threatened to
stab me with it. This is a woman that is about five month pregnant.
"I ran to my sister's shop and tried to involve her but she stayed out
of the matter because they all know that she is rude, stubborn and
violent. There was a day she and her brothers came here with thugs
from Ojuelegba they wanted to beat up everybody here. She has chased
me on the street with all sort of dangerous things. I don't really
know what she wants to achieve with all this but that day, her mum
came, my mum's sister came also and they tried to resolve the whole
"I saw my mum's sister off and before I came back, my mother-in-law
had taken my son away and I was like we are trying to solve one issue
and you are trying to cause another problem. I told her that if by
8p.m. that evening my child is not back home, she would not find it
"I said that to make her know that I was serious but she said that
there's nothing I can do. She left the house before 8p.m. and came
back 30 minutes later without my son. She took her bath and went to
sleep I went to my sister and told her I am going to my
mother-in-law's house to get my child but my family ask me not to go
there. At that time, I was tired, confused and hungry. I picked up my
laptop but while I was trying to watch a movie I fell asleep in the
"She woke me up at about 2a.m.. I was in a pair of boxer shorts. She
told me that it is either I kill her or she kills me and within
seconds she had torn my shorts. This was not surprising anyway as she
had torn many of my clothes in the past. She said 'I am going to kill
you this morning. You think I am joking'. The whole thing happened so
fast I just felt her hand in holding my penis, and the next thing was
blood flowing. I started shouting and crying for her to take me to the
"She said 'hospital ke, that's where you are going to die today' and
that was the last time I saw her. I don't know how she left the house
at that time of the night. She changed her clothes, took a big bag and
left, only for us to see her two days later at the police station.
There and then, I decided I cannot continue living with her, she could
just decide to put poison in my food and kill me one day.
"It's only a person that's alive that can explain anything. She could
just poison me and cook up a story just like she did at the police
station where she told the police officers that I woke her up at 2a.m.
and started hitting her, almost beating her to death and the officers
clapped for her for a lovely story. The officers asked how come I did
all that and she had the strength to run away and she didn't run to
the hospital, that is, someone that was almost being beaten to death
should go to the hospital and there was no doctor's report. The person
you injured brought his own medical report, we could see that the
injury was bandaged.
"The officers told her that there's no mark on her to signify being
beaten, she replied that she didn't go to any hospital because there
was no mark on her she also claimed that she didn't use any knife but
that she used her fingernails to scratch my penis," he said.
Efforts to speak with Bimbo at her mother's home proved abortive as
our reporter was prevented from talking to her.
