The 24-year-old suspect who is a resident of Oke Ola area of Ode Remo in Ogun State was arrested by the police, following a distress call received at Ode Remo divisional headquarters at about 3pm on Wednesday.
Ogun police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed that the suspect had locked up himself and his wife in their room, where “he started beating the wife.”
“it was the wailing of the wife that attracted the neighbours, who tried all efforts to persuade the suspect to open the door, but he refused.”
The DPO of Ode Remo division, CSP Olayemi Fagbohun, had mobilized his men to the scene where the door to the couple’s apartment was forced open.
“The victim was met lying down unconscious in the pool of her own blood. She was quickly rushed to the state hospital in Isara Remo where she was pronounced dead by the doctor on duty.”
