Nigerian wrestling champion, Power Uti has been arrested following the controversial death of his wife, Toyin in their Ilupeju ,Lagos.
Confirming the story, Police Public Relations Officer, Famous Cole stated that Power Uti, has been remanded at the Ilupeju Police station and would be transferred to the Criminal Investigative Department, Panti in Lagos today.
It was gathered that the body of the deceased was first discovered by Power Uti on Monday morning, who, instead of taking her to the hospital, went to a church to seek spiritual help.
The deceased was 38 years old and a mother of four children who are under the ages of nine. She was unemployed and had been married for 10 years until her demise.
Her body has been deposited at the Isolo general hospital, while her four children have been placed under the care of her mother.
It was learnt last night from multiple sources that the death has caused great shock in the Ilupeju area, as Power Uti is a popular personality, given his sporting prowess.
“Now, in the course of the investigation, the Police discovered that the day she died was not the day the incident was reported to the police.
“So in order to make sure that everything is as said by Mr. Uti, we are now doing further investigation and the case has been transferred to Panti for further investigation.”
The spokesperson said Mr. Uti’s arrest was consistent with police routine in incidents like this.
“It is normal police routine and investigation. If there is need to do autopsy and know if it was natural or not natural death, Mr.Uti has to be present.
