Nigerian woman who admitted sleeping with dogs arrested after faking own death

The police have arrested Adenike Adewodun, a woman who claimed to have had sex with dogs on Talk on B, a podcast hosted by actress Biola Adebayo, for conspiracy and attempted obtaining by false pretence.

Last month, Ms Adewodun recalled her ugly past experiences — including sexual molestation as a teenager.

She, however, came under criticism on social media after a video of the interview where she admitted that she slept with two dogs to satisfy her sexual urges went viral.

Hours after the interview, Biola said in an Instagram post that she got word from a friend of Adewodun that she had taken her own life.

The actress also suggested that the criticism she received after her confession might have contributed to her death.

However, on Thursday, Biola revealed in a statement shared on social media that she found out Adewodun faked her death.

The statement said, “The case of Miss Adenike, while tragic, is a learning curve for us. She sent a message and was asked to come and we offered to get her therapy and all but she freaked out and in a very devilish and ungodly manner faked her own death.

“After the fake death news, we have tried to locate her house to properly express our deepest condolences but it was difficult to even pen a condolence letter, and the presenter and producer Abiola Adebayo was both emotionally and mentally disturbed for days.

“In the course of properly mourning her, we noticed some discrepancies in what her so-called ‘sister’ was telling us and what her friend was saying and because we felt something was amiss.

We dispatched the Director of the show on a fact finding mission who spoke with the friend before he traced the hospital where she was supposed to have been treated and we were told there and then that she didn’t die.

“After this discovery, a petition was written by our attorney to the police to complain about the situation, and promptly, the Police investigated and arrested both Nike and her friend.

“The Police were also set to prosecute, and upon interrogation, Nike, who admitted that she was the one who approached Biola for the interview said she freaked out because people recognised her and said she felt that if she lied that she was dead Biola would remove the video. Police asked her if she reached out to Biola to remove the video at any point, and she said no.”

The statement added that Adewodun’s mother, who was at the police station after her daughter was arrested, confirmed that everything she said on the podcast was true.

Biola said she had decided to drop charges and would instead help Adewodun get rehabilitated.

She also shared a video showing Adewodun confessing that she faked her own death because she freaked out. The actress promised to upload the full confession of the woman, her friend and mother on Friday.

The statement noted that this would be Biola’s last public communication on the matter.
