Lekan Shonde who allegedly beat his wife to death told an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court that he’s not guilty of killing his wife.
Lekan was arraigned by the Police before Chief Magistrate O. A. Adelaja following the death of his wife Ronke Shonde in their Egbeda residence on Thursday, May 5th 2016.
The Autopsy report released late Wednesday attributed the cause of her death to “respiratory seizure as a result of water in the head and some injuries also in the head”.
The Police Prosecutor, Inspector Chinalu Nwadione, asked the court to remand the accused in prison due to the sensitive nature of the matter, and to enable them send the case to the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal advice.
Adelaja obliged, and ordered that the accused be remanded in custody pending. Adelaja then adjourned the case to June 24th 2016.
