According to the police, the deceased had gone to query 25-year-old Sunday Olumekun, who is suspected of dating Akinneyin’s  wife, on why he should give his wife the sum of N100,000 to start a business.

The deceased, according to police sources, was understood to have approached the suspect to query him about the rationale behind the cash and accused the suspect (Olumekun) of going out with his wife as a result of which he gave her the money to start a business.
