Family Mourns Nigerian Lady, Taiwo Owoeye Strangled To Death In UK

The family of the late Taiwo Owoeye, a former ophthalmic nurse at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, expresses deep sorrow over her tragic death in Suffolk, United Kingdom.

Regrettably, Taiwo was reportedly strangled to death by her husband, David Abodunde, on Tuesday, November 28. Disturbingly, she had filed a police report on Monday, November 27, citing assault by her husband.

When the police visited their residence the next day, they discovered Taiwo lifeless in the living room. Despite efforts to revive her, paramedics declared her dead at the scene. Her husband, present in the apartment, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of her murder.

The couple, who married in 2016, had relocated to the UK in 2022, with her husband joining her earlier this year. This tragic incident has left the family grappling with the loss of a beloved member and the shocking circumstances surrounding her demise.

The deceased’s brother, Alex Owoeye, who mourned her passing in a Facebook post claimed that David was declared the sole murderer after an investigation carried out by the police.

He wrote, “This is to officially announce the painful exit of my dear sister, Nurse Owoeye Taiwo Morenikeji, married to Abodunde David Olubunmi of Ipoti Ekiti. According to the Suffolk Police in the UK and the available documents and records sent to us via mail and direct conversations from the UK Police, after thoroughly conducted investigations, despite being caught in the act, he (the husband) was declared the sole murderer of his wife (my sister).”

Owoeye noted that the three children of the couple were currently being taken care of by the UK social services.

He also urged his family members to keep calm while assuring them that justice would be served in due course.

Another relative, Opeyemi Owoeye, also wrote on her Facebook page, “She was killed by her own very husband (Abodunde Bunmi David), no peace for the wicked. Justice for Owoeye Taiwo.”

Reacting to the news of her death, another Facebook user, Olabanji Fabiyi, described it as heart-wrenching.

He wrote, “The recent tragic news of Taiwo Owoeye Abodunde murdered by her husband in Suffolk, United Kingdom, is profoundly heart-wrenching. Although myself and Taiwo were not that so close, her late dad and my late dad were childhood friends and her mum and mine are also good friends, all from Igogo Ekiti. Considering her upbringing, it seems improbable that any provocation from Taiwo warranted such a brutal act as strangulation. Also, the audio clip of what transpired between them prior to the untimely death is a pointer to the animalistic, barbaric and untrained husband she had.”
