    Thank God! I hope and pray that there is justice. Stupid man I thought you said you will be in lagos for 30 years.. so you have been found! I don’t have any compassion for you. I only hope that you will be prosecuted to the full intent of the law.

    Lagos has finally given up. It has thrown out one of its own. See ya life, even the gods of the land couldn’t condone the kind of rubbish that you were spewing out of your mouth.

    Death over divorce is what this is- and the poor kids, what becomes of them?? they will read and see pictures of their late mother all over the internet in the nearest future. This is a wake-up call to every family, pastor and friend encouraging women to go back and make their marriages work and to victims in such “funeral i waiting” please speak up and get out.

    I pray justice prevails in this case. for him to even mention his wife was a flirt that alone establish a motive, then he’s absence the scene of the incidence and into hiding just nails the coffin. Never before have i seen or read of a spouse openly refusing to even act to mourn his beloved.

    The man turned himself in at the police station. He was not “arrested” in the technical sense of the word.

    So much for watching War Room. babe is gone and the man is here spitting crap. Lord, Have mercy.

      seriously, what does this have to do with war room? War room is a great and encouraging movie that teaches about the power of prayer over anything, If you don’t like the movie deal with it. stop coming here and making references to things that don’t relate. What does war room really have to do with this? Bellanaija if you like don’t post my comment.

      May 9, 2016 at 8:35 pm

      Can you stop already? ??? What scene in War room did you see the man beating his wife? Was there ever a case of domestic violence in war room? Stop disparaging a movie that solely teaches about the power of prayer and has helped both the married and unmarried connect with God and receive miracles through prayer.

      War room had nothing to do with domestic violence. And nobody said watching war room will automatically restore a marriage. So stop insulting the hard work the Kendrick brothers put into such a fantastic movie.

      You are probably just one sad sad person. After all said and done it’s individuals like you who really need the message in that movie.

    I read comments on an earlier post today on this guy. And people cursing him and calling him all sorts of names….
    His wife is to blame just as much as him,so people need to chill on the curses. She gave him the power and control over her life and she is also responsible for her kids becoming orphans. Let’s be objective and not allow our emotions be cloud our sense of reasoning.
    It’s sad that a woman killed her husband a few months ago and that story didn’t get such sentiments as this..I didn’t see anyone cursing the woman or asking for justice….
    A woman commits crime whether premeditated or otherwise and people are asking that she be pardoned…A man does it and no one wants to hear or believe his side of the story. But a man allegedly father’s a child outside and cheats and we have already crucified him,and we believe he did all his wife accused him of.
    I am not going to talk about Mrs Shonde,because the only people who have a right to curse him,are her family and those close to the situation.
    We women like to pull the woman card anytime it suits us,i have seen married women cheat on their husbands also,married women who are the abusers(verbally and physically),married women who fathered 3chilldren outside of the 5 she has with her husband… Even married women who have jobs very good job(they are even the breadwinner) still stay in an abusive marriage and get killed…We all read the banker lady who was murdered by her husband,and he was jailed for it..

    You can come for me if you like,you can insult me all you want. My comment is not for everyone or anyone to like. Neither am i justifying what Mr Shonde has done. All i am saying is,its time we all take responsibility for our actions and in-actions…
    Yes he physically killed her,but she killed herself 10 times over by not walking away when she should have. By staying in a marriage where the love and respect had gone…
    Let the police do their work,there are two sides to every story(even though she’s not alive to speak her truth),but her family can speak/say the bit their privy to.
    Instead of cursing the husband, its time we go back to the drawing board. And ask ourselves pertinent questions, Our blood only boils when stories like this come up,what are we doing to prevent it from happening? What steps are we taking as a people to reduce cases like this? Women what are we teaching ourselves besides fashion,weaves,shoes etc?
    Where is the love and respect for ourselves? Where is the pride? Where is the confidence and courage? Where is the truth to self?

    We mostly miss is from the geeko and blame everything and everyone but ourelves most times. We marry for the wrong reasons and then blame society when things don’t work. You know you don’t have the grace to marry a man who earns below you,yet you still marry him regardless. You know you love the hustler aka Surelere guy,instead you marry the made-man…These are just examples.
    Even when we get it right life still happens but it’s our choice to decide to stay or leave…..We either choose to keep giving power to the abuser or take back power from him/her. Choice!!!!!
    There are consequences for all our actions and in-actions in life…We came blame the pastor,blame our parents,blame the society etc. At the end of the day what we choose to do or not do is all on US. We are RESPONSIBLE for our lives.
    It’s time we start praying before choosing as opposed to clinging and knowing Jesus only when things are going wrong. Time to stop lieing to ourselves and deceiving ourselves,and also make amends were necessary…
    Time to stop hiding behind smiles,make-up and beautiful clothes. Time to heal and grow and stop allowing experiences in life determine our self-worth or how low or high our self esteem should be.. If a man doesn’t like you for who you are and how you are,then by all means please let him bounce…Love yourself,time to stop waiting for someone to love us..Its all starts and ends with YOU.

      see eh..Fola coco…it is easy for you to sit on your high horse and say all this just because you have never experienced it. This is almost like you blaming a rape victim for wearing a mini skirt and going to visit her male friend…and then getting raped..she must have caused it..she walked in and tempted him..abi?
      or even blaming the Aluu4 boys who were compromised when they were mercilessly lynched and killed because someone shouted “thief,thief”
      No one knows what tomorrow holds, i am sure that Ronke never imagined she would be killed, a few bruises ..yes but never killed.
      In Nigeria where so much premium is placed on a woman to be married and stay married, that’s why i admire young pple like Toke and Tiwa who have the guts to walk away on top cheating …when women have been conditioned and brain washed from BIRTH that their entire reason for living is to get married and have children, how easy is it to walk away from a as a single mother and raise your children alone[in this country!]…Ronke walked away many times.. but family members kept telling her to go back…she was probably ashamed and thought she would have no support system.
      Ronke died in the prime of her life, young and beautiful in the hands of the man that should have protected her the most…let her spirit rest and stop saying”ooo..she should have walked away” like its as easy as eating bread and butter…hian!
      ordinary is hard to walk away from, not to talk about marriage..let’s sometimes put ourselves in peoples shoes and show empathy….

    we cant conclude yet tho…Let’s hear his side of the story….Not that I am supporting him but will like to hear what he has to say for himself ! God help you oga, you cant wiggle your way out of this one, and will prolly need a SAN that is if you find one you can pay well to get you out of this one

      So when are we going to hear HER side of the story? We can’t now, can we? She’s DEAD.

    May 9, 2016 at 7:28 pm

    He has given himself up thankfully. Its quite unfortunate that this happened. Whatever he has to say is his words against the deceased. We should all learn to be more in control of our anger. That was his undoing. It’s possible he didn’t intentionally kill her and could have been a mistake. Some DV cases can be that the man hits the woman for the first time and resulted to death. So please men no matter how how wife provokes you. (Whether right or wrong) Kindly walk away.

    Leaving an abusive relationship is one of the most difficult thing to do, ask people who have left. Only those wearing the shoes understand what they are going through. I pray more women have the courage to leave. Most people coming to write here have same issues and r stuck. It’s only sad she died in the process of trying to keep her marriage if that’s the case.

    Wow, some of you really need to chill and understand some comments before you jump to conclusions. I have read about a lot of domestic abuse cases where the victims were told to watch war room and pray. it a beautiful movie but when you are being abused is not the time to watch it. that is what my comment meant. its not as serious as some of the replies up there. somebody is dead, she probably was told to endure and pray and now she is cold, dead, gone. that is what I meant. we can all chill now. Okbye

    Honestly, many African women are victims of incomrehesible abuse in our marriage but just hang on bcos of our children.many of our mothers experienced it and now, sadly, we ar in it. I think it is cultural. Only God wil intervene nd deliver women in this . Shonde, u killed ur wifd n locked her up with d innocent kids. I bet u, that tragic film will haunt them 4ver. U ar a devil n a serial abuser as cofirmed by ur neighbours. I dnt believe d adultery story in any way as it is a defence mechanism . U definitely have an appointment to keep wit d hangman. My heart goes to ur innocent children n all women married to devils in sheep clothing.

    See Fola Coco, getting emotional that no one is sympathising that she takes medicaction for her illnesses…you want sympathy abi? you won’t get it..or wasn’t it you that was typing that “There are consequences for all our actions and in-actions in life” so deal with your consequences..and don’t be angry at Uju for saying her mind despite your condition..after all thats what you are preaching..[see how EASY it is to talk and actually NOT take your own advice]
