Nigerian Woman in USA’s Murder of “Cheating” Husband sends Shockwaves through Diaspora Community



TemitopeIt is the story everyone is talking about. Temitope Adebamiro, a Nigerian mother of 2 based in Delaware brutally murdered her husband Adeyinka Adebamiro by stabbing him on Thursday 23rd April 2015.

Court records in Delaware revealed that Temitope is claiming her husband cheated on her with multiple women including her sister and their nanny’s daughter.

However, since the story broke, online commenters who claim to know the couple have revealed that there is more to the story. With many claiming that Temitope’s story contains several inaccurate claims.

Esteban Parra of The News Journal reports; You can read the full story on the Delaware Online website HERE.

The Grisly Scene
The husband, 37-year-old Adeyinka Adebamiro, was found stabbed in a first-floor spare bedroom of the couple’s home in the 1300 block of Healy Court early Thursday, according to court documents obtained by The News Journal.

New Castle County police were called to the home at about 12:40 a.m. for an unknown problem. Arriving officers found Adeyinka Adebamiro unconscious with a stab wound to the upper body. New Castle County paramedics pronounced him dead at 1:37 a.m., said Officer Tracey Duffy, a county police spokeswoman.

The Couple’s History
The two had been married for more than 10 years.

The accused is has alleged that her husband physically abused her, even while pregnant with their two children.

She also told investigators her husband had been cheating on her with various women, including her own sister and the nanny’s daughter, papers said. The papers, however, did not say how old the nanny’s daughter was.

Trips to Nigeria
Temitope is claiming her husband sent her on multiple long trips to Nigeria in order to continue his affairs.

In one instance, she claims that after returning in December, she had to stay in a hotel near the Philadelphia airport for four days because her husband refused to let her into their Red Lion home.

He then paid for her to fly back to Nigeria for a few more months, according to documents. About this time, she learned that her husband had spent Christmas with the nanny’s daughter.

Compromising Photos
According to the records of Temitope’s statement, at some point, she saw several texts and images in her husband’s phone, which she took pictures of using her cellphone. Some of the pictures included images of her sister and the nanny’s daughter.

What Happened on the Night of the Murder?
Police learned the couple had been talking and watching television on the couch about 9 p.m. Wednesday. Temitope and her husband began arguing after he discovered the photos she’d taken on her cellphone and he began erasing them, according to court papers.

As he yelled at her, Temitope told police there was a power outage at which time she went to the kitchen until power returned, according to documents.

Investigators checked with Delmarva Power, which indicated no such power outage occurred at that time, police said.

Temitope then told police that when the power returned, she found her husband in the first-floor bedroom lying in the bed. As she got closer to him, she saw a knife on the ground which she picked up and took to the kitchen. according to documents.

As she put it away, she noticed blood on the tip and that’s when she realized that he was stabbed, the papers said.

Changing Story…
While not admitting to the killing, the court papers claim Temitope changed her story several times about what happened in the bedroom, including to say that she entered first and her husband followed her in with the knife but that he later dropped it.

Temitope suggested that her husband stabbed himself, according to the papers. The autopsy, according to the papers, said the homicide was a single stab wound just below the victim’s neck, about 2 inches off the center line. The stab was 4 inches deep and severed the victim’s carotid artery and jugular vein.

When police told Temitope that this was not a suicide, the woman “began nodding her head in agreement,” according to court documents.


She has been charged with First Degree Murder and is being held without bail. Since the story broke, Nigerians all around the world have reacted in shock and disbelief.

      THis is just so sad. i pity the 2 kids involved in this whole nightmare. no matter the reason, there is no excuse for taking someone’s life. if the marriage was bad, why not leave????? why not get a divorce????? any other thing than kill a human being……. was she not thinking of her kids when she stabbed him??

    • Concerned wifey

      April 27, 2015 at 12:27 pm

      Bad as the situation is, she would have just ended the marriage! No need to commit murder and ruin your own life in the process.
      As she had all these evidence, including the physical abuses, all she would have done was turn them over to the police and she would have been sorted. Life abroad is not like some places in developing countries where women are subdued unfairly.

      Please fellow wives, if you find yourself in abusive marriage both physically or/and emotional, all your weapon should be directed at gathering as much as photographic and/or audio evidence as much as you can. Hand them over to the police, request to press charges, and you will be very well taken care of! Your abusive husband will be jailed!!!! and he will 100 percent loose all child custody plus restraining order to ever near you again. He will literary not set his eyes on his children ever again.

      Please No matter what happens, do not kill!!!

      Divorced him? How now when in Naija girls what to marry by fire by force like that is the ultimate achievement in life. By point is there is a lesson to be learned here and about marriage. It’s not for everyone.

    • Seriously

      April 26, 2015 at 7:23 pm

      Sometimes, divorce is not enough but if you love your life, you will go the safer route. The emotional, mental pain is so deep that you will want to cause a physical pain. It’s sad. If it’s true that he’s sleeping with her sister, then that’s just heartless from the husband and sister. The sister must be wicked to stoop that low. I’m sure, she was cheating too in response to his cheating.

    what a very vile woman. why would you kill ur husband because he cheated on u, can’t you pack ur bags and leave or even better, go and cheat back on him with his best friend or brother.

    ” Temitope told police there
    was a power outage at which time she went to
    the kitchen until power returned,”

    ” Investigators checked with Delmarva Power,
    which indicated no such power outage occurred
    at that time, police said”

    mumu woman, trying to blame it on PHCN,u think you are in nigeria, u don’t know u are in obodo oyinbo.
    that’s why I trust oyinbo people they will get to the bottom of it.

    ” Temitope suggested that her husband stabbed
    himself, according to the papers”
    why would he stab himself, is he doing penance?

    temitope, u are a nigerian woman and you don’t even know how to tell good lies. shame on u.

    I pity the two kids.

      Did you not read? The point is not whether there is an occasional power outage in the US (which only happens sometimes due to harsh weather), there was none at the time she claim. It is always documented and the investigation proved that there was none at the time in question.

    All of you tapping into people’s mansions and range rovers, you see una lives? Tope and her husband lived in an $800,000 and was a Delaware big girl cruising around in a Range Rover and Benz…this marriage thing is not by force….and frankly is not for everyone. She is now a murderer all cos of a lousy marriage

    • hearsay

      April 26, 2015 at 6:11 pm

      From the comments I read on the original report, she was the one who was cheating, traveling to Nigeria for several months with several excuses and hosting birthday party for her young nigerian lover. There are even people are even willing to go and talk in court and talk their several contacts/storeis with her..

      She probably wanted his life insurance ( Or maybe I have watched way to many DATELINE).

      Here are my issues with the whole scenario

      1) if he was that bad, why not leave? They were stinking rich and they both live in America where the system would likely favour the woman and the kids. As a married couple, chances are that you would share your assets in half.

      2) the lies she told makes it hard to believe any other thing that comes out from her mouth. Period.

      3) it was premeditated murder. How did a knife end up on the top floor after NEPA took light??

      4) why be so selfish to kill off the father of your children – making them fatherless and impacting their future for life. GREED!! Need for money. Like she wanted a range rover before having a second child. Driving around Deleware with her Benz and range rover. smh.

      5) why would someone who was cheating (as she suggested) kill himself…most times its the person that is cheated on that would likely be depressed and consider suicide.

      like they say, there are 3 sides to a story – his, hers and the truth…well, he is no longer there to tell his own side, she is a proven liar and the truth may never be known…my prayers are for the innocent victims – their children! I cant even imagine how scared they would be for life…i hope they get adequate councelling and have a brighter future.

      I agree with you…ALL That GLITTERS AINT Gold….

    • Wale

      April 26, 2015 at 6:37 pm

      Owning a range or Benz is no big deal here, you buy on credit. It could be a lease, who knows? A $800k property could have been purchased for $200k a few years ago. Most Nigerians live an efizee lifestyle here, erhm-erhm, just like Nigerians everywhere else. Whatever the case, I don’t know why she is surprised her husband is cheating to the point of murdering him and altering her own life. 99% of Nigerian men cheat, maybe she didn’t get the memo. She should have divorced him and taken half of their shared property, then gotten herself a toy boy. She is very pretty, what a waste.

    • Uuu

      April 26, 2015 at 7:27 pm

      Wale there is no way a 200k house can become 800k. In Nigeria I bought a piece of land for 300k today it’s worth 5millin it has taken 7 years to appreciate

      April 28, 2015 at 2:52 am

      Poor people always convince themselves that people who have money dont have money. Everything is not a big deal. Why dont u have a range rover and benz or live in an 800k house? It is very much a big deal when your mortgage is $3800 monthly and you are paying $1200 a month in car notes or lease. Everyone cant afford it. No one will give you a loan unless your debt to income ratio doesn’t add up. With that said, everybody cut your coat according to you size.

    April 26, 2015 at 5:40 pm

    Such a sad situation. Not saying what she did was good but at least for d sake of her children, she should have made a better decision than taking someone else’s life. Some women are victim of guys like this and Noone really know the true story. I just found out someone I’m involved with for year that every one knew us together just disappear for couple of days only to remerged married. I’m not going to stab him because no one is worth me being in jail. I think women need to learn and gain inner strength and know there’s more to life than cheating men. I Feel sorry for her kids

    April 26, 2015 at 5:49 pm

    This is why I say I can’t stay in an abusive (physical or otherwise) relationship….someone WILL end up dead, and while I’m not exactly sure who, it’s going to be a loose:loose situation for either of us, so it’s better pack my kaya comot before the kitchen gets too hot.
    In fact because of my volatile nature as a kid my mum stopped hitting way earlier than the other kids (even the boys)…the last time she shoved me, the kain eye wey I take look am, she never did it again.
    Who else watches the show ‘SNAPPED’? it’s about situations like this….it happens more often than we think. People sha need to know that leaving a bad situation is not just for emotional reasons (i.e. being happy), but it’s also very easy to find yourself on the wrong side of the law. What’s the percentage of women in prison because of spouse/domestic related violence again?? like 80%, if not higher.

    April 26, 2015 at 5:53 pm

    If a man has been abusing you verbally or physically, and you choose to stay, or never made any formal complaints, shut your stupid mouth. Women must learn to speak up, it’s better than bottling it inside and one day one kills the other. Such stupidity, NEPA took light in America. Is this how bad illiteracy and ignorance has gotten in this country? Such a lame excuse. How do such people get visas in the first place? Enjoy your stay in jail madam

    This woman is a devil incarnate, i know her, she was picked from ibadan to marry a yankee pharmacy owner, the guy was doing great but his folks had to pick his bride hence the unfortunate situation of meeting this devil, she would go to Nigeria 6 months at a time leaving her 2 month old with the live in Nanny, her kids refer to the nanny as mummy and her as aunty cos they don’t recognise her as their mum. She once stole the guy’s $10k and fled to Nigeria, she came back and the guy took her back, whether na jazz i nor know o but this bitch had it coming, shame they guy i had to die, I sincerely wished this unfortunate incident happened with one of her lovers. Now her kids are orphans on top wetin. Olooshi oloriburuku alaye baje.

    I guessed as much that it was a local woman that was hand picked from Nigeria to go and marry a prof breed! Even if the man was abusing her,all she could have done was to leave him and move on with life,like someone said earlier most Nigerian men are cheats.
    This case is the case of a woman who was reaping where she did not sow and if the man’s family really hand picked her to marry their son then good luck to them,because most Nigerian family members want to pick a woman they feel they can control and say their sons should come back home to get a wife,when there are Nigerian women here in the US. They want their son to go back home so they can pick a witch for him to marry,because most Nigerian mothers that are witches would prefer their sons to marry one,they are ones that will go check spiritual compatibility with the spiritualist and when son comes home with a christian girl,they will lie to him that they are not compatible,so they can carry out the plan of satan in their son’s life.!

    It’s sad because this man is dead and he is not here to protect his name and honor. Only the family and those close to them know the TRUE story. I know this mans brother and there has been on going incidents for years about how this woman cheated on the man. Ran to nigeria with his money to open beer palour. Sleeping with other men.

    Even the title of this post makes it seem as though he was caught cheating.

    I am sure they will soon get a lawyer to reach out to those defaming the mans character.

    NIgerian women in the States are something elso. At the slightest provokation they pull out knife or gun. That was how my brother’s wife pulled a knife on him one time because she wanted my niece out of the house for reasons best known to her. My brother had to call in the police before the situation was brought under control. Because they feel they have upper hand in the States, they tend to misbehave.
    It painful when your husband cheats on you but not enough reason to pull out a knife to kill him.
    so sad.

There is honour and self respect in that, and with time all wounds heal, you have your children and you move on! Since when does marriage now end in death and jail, kai! Walk away and allow the man or woman be, marriage is not the be and end of it all! When will we learn this my naija people?

    This is obviously a premeditated stab, she stabbed him once without her sustaining any bruise or some sort too.

    She must have stabbed him from sleep.

    I live in bear too and we attend same chr in Newcastle(rccg) she joined de choir few weeks ago tho I neva noticed him in chr, her husband has 6 pharmacy in philly (ATA Pharmacy) one in broad street. So sad such a young promising man died such a awful death. rip yinka
    Smh…rot in jail madam
