Breaking: Court Sentences Lekan Shonde to Death for Killing Wife

Lekan Shonde, a depot worker in Apapa, Lagos State, has been sentenced to death for the murder of his wife Ronke.

Delivering judgment at the Lagos State High Court Friday, Justice Josephine Oyefeso found Shonde guilty of murder and sentenced him to death by hanging.

Ronke murdered in 2016

Shonde was accused of killing Ronke in their Lagos home, though he had consistently denied committing the crime, stating that he only slapped her.

He had accused her of sleeping with one Kayode, the General Manager of a publishing company, before her death.

He had also allegedly locked up the corpse of his spouse, with his children inside their home, before she was discovered hours later by their housekeeper.

The dock worker reportedly committed the offence in May 2016.
