It Just Went From Bad To Worse For Lekan Shonde Sentenced To Death For Killing Wife
Lekan Shonde, the depot worker in Apapa, Lagos state, has been found guilty of the killing of his wife, Ronke.
The Lagos State High Court on Friday sentenced to death by hanging over the murder.
It is recalled that Lekan, 51, beat his wife to death at their home in the Egbeda-Idimu area of Lagos State and locked the door on the corpse and their two children before the incident was discovered by a housekeeper.
The housekeeper reportedly alerted the police.
The marriage, which was blessed with two children, aged six and four, was said to have been marred with domestic violence.
He accused Ronke of sleeping with one Kayode, the general manager of a publishing company.
Delivering the judgement on Friday, Justice Josephine Oyefeso sentenced Lekan to death based on the conviction that the convict killed his wife.
