A 45-year-old landlady, identified as Folasade, has allegedly killed her tenant, Omolola Oladipupo at Taotao street, Lotogbe area of Ondo West Local Government Area of the Ondo State.
Folasade was said to have allegedly hit the head of the 33-year-old on the floor, which resulted to her death.

The Hope Metro gathered that Folasade and Omolola were fond of quarrelling with each other. But their disagreement took the worst turn on Tuesday, when it claimed the life of the tenant.
It was learnt that the suspect, Folasade, accused the deceased of walking across her pot where she was cooking, which led to a hot argument.
She was said to have held late Omolola and allegedly pushed her to the floor.
The deceased’s husband, Mr Ikudabo Oladipupo said, “I was inside the room when I heard the voices of my wife and our landlady.
“I heard that my wife said she wanted to pass, and that the landlady should remove her pot from where she was cooking on the way where we pass to the kitchen.
“But my landlady said she will not remove the pot. She told my wife to go and pass another place. So, as my wife wanted to pass by the side of the pot, my landlady held her and pushed her away.
“Before I would come out of the house, my landlady had pushed my wife on the floor. When I saw her condition, I quickly rushed her to the hospital where she was confirmed dead.
“My wife and I stayed in the same house. She had three children for me. There is no other person in the house. My wife was already prepared to go to the market where she sells skin cow popularly called “ponmo.”
“Her corpse has been deposited at the morgue in a general hospital,” he explained.
But in her own narration, the suspect, Folasade, said, “the deceased crossed over my food where I was cooking and I held her neck, while she also held my wrapper and removed it. Then, I was not wearing any underwear or dress. So, I pushed her and she fell on the floor.”
