Who remembers “Sample Ekwe….Sample Ekwe……Sample Ekwe”, yes that was the hit single by Stereoman; unfortunately Stereoman is in a fix, he was recently arrested for the alleged murder of his estranged baby mama, Rukayat Idris. Stereoman was picked up by homicide detectives attached to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba, Lagos on May 9, 2012.
The couple had been having issues and last year he moved out from their apartment at the Central Bank of Nigeria Quarters, Satellite Town, Lagos . On April 13, 2012, Rukayat Idris, a mother of two was found in her Honda Civic car under the bridge, close to the Trade Fair Complex Bus Stop on the ever busy Mile2-Badagry Expressway around 8pm dead.
Marks on her neck suggests that she died through strangulation. Though there is no concrete evidence tying the singer to the murder, he is still being held in police custody until the case against him can be cleared. He maintains that he has nothing to do with her death.
Her family members however aren’t convinced, referring to the issue of constant quarrelling and battering between the two estranged couple.
