Husband of Deceased Domestic Violence Victim speaks out from Hiding | Says he did not Kill his Wife



Ronke Shonde and her husband 001

Lekan Shonde, the husband of late Ronke Shonde who is alleged to have died after being beaten by her husband, has spoken out from hiding.

According to Punch, they were able to contact Lekan via the phone of an in-law and the communication has been authenticated by the Police.

Speaking with the newspaper, Lekan denies killing his wife or even beating her on the night she died  he also denied locking his kids in the house.

Here’s what Lekan shared with Punch Metro:

Since I married my wife eight years ago, she has never bought anything into the house. I gave her N5,000 on Saturdays and N3,000 on Tuesdays for soup. I also gave her money to make her hair.

“She was working with GTB as a marketer, but she got sacked three years ago. For that period, I was the one feeding her and taking responsibility for everything in the family. I would wash her pants, bathe the children and buy foodstuffs in the house. She later got a job with a publishing company owned by her uncle.

“But my wife changed sometime in March, when she started dating the general manger of a publishing company. My wife was going to the office from Monday to Sunday and she wasn’t going to church again, all because of this man. She called him ‘Eyitemi’ (My own).

“Last week Friday, she went to Abuja and came back on Monday. She never told me that the lover was there with her. I learnt later that the lover was there and they slept together in the same room for four days.

“When she came back, she didn’t know I was inside the house. She started talking with the man on the phone that he really had fun with him and I didn’t know how to make love. She again said her private parts were paining her.”

It was around 9pm on Thursday. We had paid our nanny N20,000. Then we needed to pay our children’s teachers N30,000. I discovered she had taken N20,000 and when I asked her to return my money, she said she had spent it.

“I was angry because for the past three months, she didn’t allow me to have sex with her. I pushed her hand away from me on the staircase and I left her. She never tumbled or fell. In fact that night, I bought the food that we both ate because she said she didn’t want to cook.

“I didn’t know anything had happened to her until Friday when I saw her on the staircase. I thought she was still pretending. I just left her and walked away.”

“Jide, her family’s second child lived with me for three to four years. Their eldest daughter, Bolatito, has lived with me too.

“Although I am not a saint, I don’t drink, I don’t smoke. I am a responsible man. The problem with my wife was that she was temperamental. She shouted at me whenever she talked.

“I am a Lagos boy and I can be in this Lagos for the next 30 years and nobody would see me.”

Family members of the late Ronke were also contacted by Punch Metro and while the family is still in mourning they emphasized that they have forgiven Lekan and pleaded with him not to commit suicide.

      I just wonder why He went into hiding….Guilty Conscience?

    • Yeyeperry

      May 9, 2016 at 10:21 am

      I think he went into hiding because whether or not he killed her, the poor judicial and police system in Nigeria would condemn him for the crime

    • 'Yeye' for real

      May 9, 2016 at 12:14 pm

      Yeyeperry, you must be kidding!! How many abusers have been jailed by our poor system?? If anything, they often go scot-free and end up victimizing others. Are you joking?? If he did not kill her, there was no reason for him to run; he should have stayed to defend his name and protect his vulnerable young children. Cowardly excuse for a man.

      May 9, 2016 at 1:01 pm

      Absolutely rubbish statement. Totally unbelievable. He washed her pant!!!! And he is a Lagos boy. It’s just that she is not alive to defend herself so he can say all sorts about her in other to seek pity from the public. Women please be warned, dead body no dey talk, leave an abusive man while you are still alive.

    However outrageous, his story was somewhat believable until the “…I’m a lagos boy…” part.
    Oloriburuku gbaaa ni bobo yi! He’s even arrogant to top it all up…if the owners of the morning say it will better for him, the owners of the rest of the day never allow it to happen!
    You pushed her, you had dinner and then you met her on the ground in the morning? Sho jo ara won ni? How does that even add up?
    Even by his account that woman shouldn’t have died! She laid there bleeding ALL NIGHT! Jesus! May we never do business with such unfortunate fellows in Jesus name!

      Story na yakitiyak. Ko believable rara.

      You hv always battered this woman. Then, you heard her talking to a man on the phone about his prowess in bed and how she was sore all over. Then , you used your two left legs to go and buy food that both of you ate that same night. Haa, the bobo ti yawere.

      Biko, come out of hiding. The family may say the have forgiven you. No whahala. Na you and Lagos state get case.

    I knew it!!! Who killed her then?? Nigerian police are a sorry excuse of a police force!!! Talking to him from hiding how????? And his in laws are begging him not to commit suicide? I hope it’s because they want to kill him themselves!!!!
    Now he is accusing her of infidelity. Why didn’t he just divorce her or send her back to her parents if this was true. Shame that the dead can’t talk.
    Women please learn from this. There is no virtue for remaining in an abusive marriage, when he kills you he will lie and say he didn’t do it and try to tarnish your memory too.

    This is sad. You never trusted her for long especially while she was a bank marketer with GTB as I could gather from diffrent reports, why not take the walk Mr Lekan, the killer. Family sources from other reports said the major cause of their dispute was the women having extra marital affairs, a sensible man would have divorced her straight. The man was a cold blooded killer. Nothing justifies killing even if you caught her with another man on your matrimonial bed. If you have divorced her, you will be a free man, there are many fishes in the water. A sensible man must not hit a woman. Take the long walk. The issue of infidelity by the man cannot be substantiated because the women is dead. I pity those 2 children, innocent children.

    May 9, 2016 at 7:11 am

    You can be in Lagos for 30 years and they won’t see you? You’ve already confirmed that you are guilty. All you have said above increases the suspicion that you beat her to death, you would have just insisted that you did not beat her to death but mentioning all the above means you were bitter with her which could have prompted the violence. The family has forgiven you? How typical, that’s why there’s hardly any justice in Nigeria.

    Only time will tell,if you can survive the next thirty days on the run,nothing can justify the killing,been a fugitive from the law you have proved the allegation beyond reasonable doubt that you are guilty as alleged,You must answer your warrant.

  18. Tracy

    May 9, 2016 at 7:21 am

    Mr Shonde you story sounds laughably implausible. For one thing you spent the bulk of the conversation slut-shaming your wife instead of offering a credible alternate theory of her death.

    You have admitted to have a previous history of abuse, of having been “provoked”, and being present when her body was on the floor which you walked past.

    And we are to believe that you did not kill her? Who did then? The only other people present where a 6 year old and 4 year old. You sir, are displaying classic signs of sociopathy: it was not your fault, she deserved whatever happened to her, the lack of compassion for the death of the mother of your children, the taunt that you won’t be found because you are a ‘Lagos boy’ and finally the vicious character assassination even in her death.

    You are a sociopath and you killed her. And I hope you hang for it.

    May 9, 2016 at 7:24 am

    This man has to b d biggest bastard ever liveth!!! Seeeeen so you killed her because she allegedly cheated on you but women according to 9ja culture are suppose to live with cheating husbands for the rest of their lives as its a permanent burden they are suppose to bear? Nigga you gotta be a bloody weakling to even mention you provided the needful as a man. You expect us to clap for you now for a job well done as she deserves the ultimate death for daring to do her official duties as your insecurities has no bound??? This man right here is the problem with Nigerian men who cannot stomach what they dish out and feel they are entitled to their wife’s life. Please the police has to do their job to catch this asswipe but I do not believe in imprisonment; they should cut out those fingers of his one after the other sealing it with a rod that has been kept in a burning furnace for a while so he doesn’t die but never remains the same again. That tongue of his used for spilling this bullshit should be cut out. Also, the wife’s face should be tattooed to his forehead so she would literally become a part of him as he would see in his reflection everytime.
    RIP Ronke, you were one of the unlucky ones that had to pay the ultimate price to validate your existence as a Nigerian woman.

    Unfortunately she is gone and she can’t tell her side of the story. I read that he always accuses her of infidelity. Listen dear women, if your husband is in the habit of accusing you of unfounded allegations of cheating please run, it will never get better!I know what I am talking about, I have been there, I barely escaped with my life. Once trust is not there, your foundation is faulty.

    This fool just gave us the reason he killed his wife, he didn’t kill her n yet he ran away and still in hiding. u saw your wife on the floor in a pool of blood and thought she was pretending? God have mercy. See him telling us how much he gives his wife as if that justifies killing her, men buys cars n takes their wives on vacations abroad, you are here bragging about 3k u gave your wife for food for the family including yourself. This man should be hanged, why won’t he say rubbish is she here to defend herself? And her family is begging him not to commit suicide, rubbish

    The bible has said it “Anger resteth in the bosom of fools”…I’m scared to judge because I wasn’t there when it happened. These times are hard. To all unmarried ones (I’m one), mehn, marriage really is not for “kids”, no be by degree, you must have full understanding
    You don’t prepare on a battlefield, you plan ahead of the battle, if not, you might end up dying on the battlefield
    You don’t go into a marriage without seeking God’s consent and then, tell him to take control because “once, the foundation is destroyed, what can the righteous do”= PRAY (but you sef go see small)
    It’s better to be unmarried than married to the wrong person.
    The Devil means serious business in destroying homes and people, when the Devil really wants to destroy you, he plans it well and makes use of one’s shortcoming…

    The Devil really is an author of confusion, but God sees what we do not see… May He judge this situation.

    May the dead rest in peace

    I’m not on anybody’s side, I hope you understand.

    You already implicated yourself by saying, you were with her in the same her, prior to murder. So what’s your alibi.

    Marriage is completely overrated. Maybe contract marriarage renewable every 2 years will help our generation. With a 2 year contract, nobody is under pressure, even if the wife dey fuck diffrent men. You just bid your time for the 2 years to be over. The line between deep love and deep hate is very tiny, a man can profess genuine love to you and later hate you with passion i.e passion to kill. Lekan is a murderer no doubt about it but the fact is the late wife at a point was unfaithful (trust issues). 85% of female bank marketers cheat married and unmarried
    Since infidelity is now a competition between married men & women, can we adopt this contract marriage. It will save lives. All the man shouting here, 60% of Naija men can’t condone their wife’s infidelity.

    • Silly Paul

      May 9, 2016 at 10:19 am

      Please confirm the source of these ridiculous ‘statistics’. Unless you saw her cheating, you have no right to say she cheated. And even if she did, are you saying that makes it justified for her husband to murder her?! And FYI, marriage is already a contract that can be terminated at any time by either party – it’s called divorce! Nothing stops anyone from ending their marriage if they wish to do so. So what’s the point of this 2-year nonsense you’re spewing??

    • I don't agree

      May 9, 2016 at 10:01 pm

      @Paul Adeyemo…..I wanted to like your comment until you concluded the lady cheated.That’s an unfair conclusion.The fact is that a lot of men have trust issues especially if they are married to women that always look good.I am an example.I love to look good so I ‘package’ myself very well every time.I have never cheated on my husband(who is a chronic womanizer) before, not because i love him but because i fear God,but huzzy has trust issues cos he believes I do what he does.He is bothered even as little as when I touch my phone.So will you conclude that I am unfaithful???
      I also disagree with your conclusion that 85% of bankers sleep around.I have over 10years banking experience,but I have never dated any of my customers before or even dated any of my coleagues.Any banker that sleeps around would do so even if she wasn’t a banker,

    May 9, 2016 at 8:26 am

    – liar!!! I saw the – body! You fool. She was on the left side of the living room. yet you hit her on the staircase. Why was your picture on the sofa??
    You were married before. Why did Sola leave you?? With her kids? was it not because you were beating her?
    You have always been paranoid. Insecure fool. why did you leave while it was dark? why did you lock Temi and Tiara in the room ? Why was her face red? why were her eyes swollen. Why did you run? do people run when they haven’t killed anyone? why are you hiding? Idiot!!!!!!! You ran away!! Why did you tell the Nanny not to resume till 6.30am instead of the 5.30am that she resumes.You didnt hit her but you told the nanny that you only slapped her. dont worry. you will have your day in cut and then you will rot in Jail.

    I cannot believe people are genuinely asking why he’s on the run, if he didn’t kill her. I know I would definitely be on the run. That’s where the Nigerian police force have gotten people to, because they are bad at their jobs. Most of them don’t know the laws of the country. This man did have a motive and he didn’t mention that he had never hit her and I doubt the Nigerian police can prove without the benefit of a doubt that he did commit this crime. My aunty slipped, fell, hit her head on the marble floors and died. Yes, it happens. Until an autopsy is carried out we don’t know anything. Oh btw, I do 80% believe he did it due to the motive i believe he had, but the 20% is enough for me to run from the nigerian police.

    “I didn’t know anything had happened to her until Friday when I saw her on the staircase. I thought she was still pretending. I just left her and walked away.” Really!! the mother of you children laid there and you thought she was doing what? dabbing?? Man! I feel like slapping your guilty brain to factory settings am so pissed right now aaaarrrgghhhhhh.

    Stop giving the same lame excuses anymore you killed her. this right here is domestic violence gone wrong so man up and face the music .you all should stop with that old and stupid excuse of she was cheating,a weak ass like you gave the same reason for his failed marriage just last week . Kai when will you all grow up and assume responsibility.

    May 9, 2016 at 8:37 am

    His story maybe true (the part that she cheated) but I think he exaggerated.

    He said he doesn’t smoke and drink. He clearly refused to talk about his own infidelity because he’s probably as guilty.

    I don’t understand how cheating men (mostly) can’t handle their wife’s cheating.

    Victims of infidelity need to understand that you need to walk away, you can leave the marriage. Don’t empower the situation to ruin your life any further.

    I believe the lawyer who killed her husband in Ibadan did so because of (his alleged) infidelity too.

    Murder is a billion times worse than infidelity. Let the guy face the full wrath of the law.

    2) you went into hiding and locked up everywhere

    3) your story is incoherent in the sense that it doesn’t add up and it’s full of shit

    Why is it so easy for people to believe that she cheated? Then ‘let’s not take sides’, even after police reports claim she had ‘marks of violence’ on her. Soon people will say it was marks from her children holding her too tight. It’s so sad, women staying because of ‘what will people say’, He kills you, calls you a cheat, now ‘let’s not take sides’ and ”she probably cheated’ is what people will say.

    GOD will punish you,God will surely punish you, she didn’t fall or tumbled but was found dead?how ,how ?how? you killed a woman,someone’s daughter, your wife, mother of your children, someone you have stayed with under same room for over five years,what will you tell those children? how can you explain to them that you saw their mother lying down on the stairs but ignored her because you felt she was pretending, why was she pretending if you didnt push her and she didnt fall but she decided to sleep on the stairs, you can hide for 100years but one day you will come out and explain to those innocent children.

    This man is as guilty as sin and he will not go unpunished…Afflictions, pain and sorrow will be his daily companions, morning, noon and night for the rest of his life… The sun will smite him during the day and the moon will rain down afflictions on him at night… You have killed the mother of your children…Well done oh!!! God’s punishment will rest upon you because you are unrepentant… I don’t understand some men killing their wives especially for infidelity when they the men even start cheating from the wedding day as if both man and wife don’t take vows of fidelity before God…

    For someone who was assumed beaten to death, how come there are no visible marks or injury on her body, or didn’t anyone notice it? She probably fell down the stair case like the man said.

    Who does that?. ..thought she was still pretending and walk away..and of course still remembered to take her phones.
    TBizz said same about Tiwa..weak men when found out..try to justify their insane actions through slut shaming..only in a misogynistic society…

    What is this? He did not respond to the allegation or make remarks to her death.
    Sounds like an unrepentant man. Your wife died and all you can do is say her wrongs to you? No grieve, shock or sorrow for the loss your wife. I am perplexed. He should be arrested. He has a hand in her death.

    When you discovered infidelity, why didnt you walk out of this relationship? Marriage is not by force now….

    You claimed you left her on the stairway, how did her corpse get to the living room? You had the gut to leave the children she had for you with her lifeless body in the living room…. ha! you are heartless! we are not fools!

    The dude is hiding because of the poor judicial system we have in Nigeria but then, I still think the guy isn’t saying the truth.

    The police should start with the lady’s phone, at least she didn’t know she was going to die so she would still have some messages inside it and then check the last calls.

    It should not be hard for Lekan to lie. Obviously the strength needed to lie is less than what he used to kill.
    He’s accusing her of infedility now that she has been silenced forever
    Ronke actually saw the hand writing on the wall but was too indicisive to run for her dear life…even when Lekan snapped a love letter fabricated by him against Ronke to friends.

    This sounds like lies through and through. Apparently there were neighbour reports that the guy always (not something recent) beat her upto the point the neighbours heard, if he didn’t kill her, he is still guilty of domestic abuse, but the guy did, with all the reports of injury on her from the autopsy… You just thought she was just chilling there?

    Someone commented on nairaland yesterday/day before that she was their church member, proud of her kids that whenever she came to church the wife and husband sat at different places, i didn’t think too much about the story, what a coincidence with this story, “she stopped going to church”.

    Because the dead cannot speak, he is smearing her name in mud? because some Nigerians have been known to justify a man beating his wife for not doing housework or cheating, he’s trying to paint himself as the one who took up “wifely duties” when his “evil” wife abandoned it?

    Justice will be serviced. Karma.

    Are you high? So you saw your wife on the staircase and you thought she was pretending and walked away? Are you seriously kidding me? Speak the truth and shame the devil. Infact we don’t need your fabricated truths, we all know the truth and the truth is, ‘you killed your wife’. Nothing will ever exonerate you from the crime even if you sweet-coat your tongue with words or escape prison. Her death will forever hang over your head.
    I don’t get this at all. You saw her on the staircase and walked away? Aren’t men supposed to love and take care of their wives? Why are you the husband then? Infact I am done writing this….I’m so pissed.
    Finally, you are a Lagos boy but God will locate you…anyway, you’re in His UNIVERSE!

    it is a shame that he has the guts to be talking from his hiding place. I don’t blame him as the dead cannot defend herself. I quote “I am a Lagos boy and I can be in this Lagos for the next 30 years and nobody would see me.” Yea he is right as our society condones such crimes that even hired assassins goes scot free without judgement but I tell you as a mother he will never know or see peace as long as live. His mother will weep over him ASAP.

    Lonke , you are a Murderer, an Animal! Ronke, You suffered. My sister, may your soul find everlasting peace. Those poor children. Their life turned upside down because of a monster who did not, could not control his actions. Why is this obviously deranged animal allowed to marry, procreate and destroy the family unit he was supposed to protect?

    My sisters, we need to ask more of our men and hold them to a higher standard of behaviour.
    As African women, we are raised to have the utmost respect for our men but how are they being taught to treat us?

    It begins at home, with our sons and our brothers.

    If our brother or son murders his wife/partner/daughter, we share the blame.

    If our daughters/ sisters are murdered by their husband/brother, we should be asking his family questions and vice versa.

    The family is the fundamental unit of society. We are responsible for each other.

    Hello Mr lekan Shonde or whatever they call you. You’re a bloody liar and you’re inconsistent with your oral evidence: saying that you didn’t know something was wrong with your wife whilst you’re still in the house with her. And again you both ate together at that night . In my opinion, I will suggest that you killed your wife just because of your jelousy and she refused you having a sex with her. You will be arrested and rust in jail soon.

    Hey hey guys, lets not judge and fear God in this matter. On hearing this story over the weekend, there is no curse I didnt send to this man. On reading this article I hissed throughout saying “He must be a bastard” until the part it said, his inlaws have forgiven him and beg him not to commit suicide. Let us put some common sense into this, if your family felt your husband was responsible for your murder is that what they will be saying? Wont someone have come out to express their feeling about him? My family would even put reward for his capture on his head. Due to the reaction of the inlaws, I dont believe this man did it. I feel we Nigerians should stop jumping at every opportunity to have someones head on a stick. The family of the deceased don forgive am, that changes a whole lot. Although his account is still suspicious to me and if our Nigerian Police were a useful bunch, they would get to the bottom of this.

  85. Day of reckoning

    May 9, 2016 at 2:44 pm

    According to your statement, you said your wife came back from Abuja on Monday and you heard her talking to her “supposed lover” on the phone, for a man that admits to beating his wife in the past, how come you didn’t do anything to her on Monday night? According to you, what caused the disagreement was money and this was Thursday night, 3 days after you heard her talking to her lover. Mr Lekan, you even offered to go and buy food on Thursday night for yourself and your wife, let us remember that this is a woman her husband claimed to have overheard her talking to her lover, which abusive Nigerian man will go out in the night to buy food for his wife, three days after hearing her supposed sexcapade with another man. I put it to you that you never heard your wife talking to any man because you would have killed her that Monday night because you have been physically abusive to her. You killed your wife because of N20,000.
    Secondly you claim you pushed your wife’s hand away from the staircase, so she should have landed at the foot of the stairs, I have never been to ur house but I saw the pictures on the Internet, your wife’s lifeless body was not at the foot of the stairs, it was in the living room. This is another lie, people at the scene said she had marks on her body, pls how did those marks come?
    How can a man kill his wife and have no remorse, may God judge you. I am not a lawyer Mr Lekan but I see right through your cock and bull story. Your day of reckoning is around the corner.

Then when you realized she wasn’t, you didn’t take her to the hospital or anything? I could kill you right now!!! I’m so pissed I’m willing to put a bounty on your head!! You will be found!

Their daughter is dead and her husband is on the run! Even if he is innocent there is no way they would have let it go in just 72hrs! They will still be demanding for answers and hard evidence before forgiving anyone. Can’t you see this is all a story?? Don’t believe this guy! He is making this shit up!!!!!

    You thought she was “still pretending”? That means that she was on the floor after you supposedly just “pushed her hand away” and you left her there thinking she was pretending. You came back saw her on the floor and thought she was “still pretending” and did nothing to help her. How can you do such to a woman whose pants you were supposedly washing. Stupid liar

    I don’t understand o, if murdering your spouse is the solution to infidelity then permit me to say about 80% of men would have been murdered. The story doesn’t add up; she came bk frm abj on Monday and died on thursday?( I stand to b corrected pls) if truly u heard that phone call on Monday, u wud have beaten her to pulp that day, y delay till thursday. Hmmmmm. I don’t want to judge but the truth has been spoken frm your story; I guess you pushed her frm staircase she fell, hit her head and instead of u to rush her to hospital, you got scared, dragged her to living room thinking you cud resurcitate her, but she died, fear gripped you, you ran away……. just my thoughts aloud tho…..
