Lekan Shonde, a depot worker in Apapa, has been sentenced to death by a Lagos State High Court.

According to Sahara Reporters, Lekan was sentenced to death by hanging for allegedly beating his wife, whom he accused of cheating, to death in 2016.

He was alleged to have locked the door on the corpse and their two children before the incident was discovered by a housekeeper and later reported to the police.

Delivering the judgement on Friday, Justice Josephine Oyefeso sentenced Lekan to death based on the conviction that he killed his wife, despite his insistence that he only slapped her.
