Kofoworola Badru, the widow of late Lagos socialite, Kayode Badru, who was roasted during a prayer session, has been arrested after the family accused her of having a hand in his death.

The family of the late socialite accused her of conspiring with a prophet to burn him to death.

Recall that Kayode Badru died on Wednesday, May 5, days after his pastor allegedly sprayed perfume on him while he was holding a lit candle.

Badru was at a branch of the Celestial Church of Christ in Alagbado, Lagos, for prayers when he met his sad demise.

He had been asked to kneel down while surrounded by seven elders and several lit candles. During the prayer session, a pastor is said to have sprayed a spiritual perfume on him and this move ignited fire.

Badru, a successful businessman and socialite who shuttled between Nigeria, Europe and the United Arab Emirates, was rushed to the Gbagada General Hospital, where he eventually died after a week.

His widow said she has been accused wrongly by his family, specifically his brother, Gbenga Badru, of being responsible for his death.

Kofoworola said, “My husband’s younger brother claims that I conspired with the pastor to roast my husband to death, because of his properties.

“He wrote a petition against me at Alagbon Police Station. In the petition, it was written that I don’t have (any) family and I’m an orphan and that I conspired with the pastor to kill my husband because of money. They also accused me of moving and selling things from the house the night he died.

“I was picked up on July 1, which is the first day I went out of the house after my 41 days mourning. I was made to sleep at the station, even after I told them I have a one-year-old baby. I was only released on bail the next day being July 2 and I have been asked to report at the station tomorrow, Monday (today).

“On the night my husband died, while we were at the mortuary, my husband’s brother claimed that I didn’t greet him and beat the hell out of me despite knowing that I recently had a surgery.

“The whole family came to the house the following day and ordered everybody out that they wanted to lock the house. They arrested me even though they know I have no relationship with the pastor. They also claimed I bribed police officers at Panti not to give them the autopsy report.

“I’m very scared, I have two kids, aged 3 and one, my body has been shaking since that day till now, I’m traumatised.”
