It has been gathered that late Ronke Shonde’s secret lover has apologised to the killer husband after the ugly incident.
According to The Nation, the alleged secret lover begged for forgiveness.
This was revealed by Sholuki, who’s Executive Director, Campaign against Impunity and Domestic Violence who said: “Even as we were coming to the police command, he has spoken with his mother-in-law to notify her that he has surrendered.”
The woman told him that he has done very well for her family and that though they were pained, they have forgiven him and he should not think of suicide again.
“He also called his wife’s lover and told him he hoped he was happy now that he has destroyed his home. The man begged for forgiveness.
“When information came to us about what has happened, we told him to come out for the law to take its course. We have known him for a long time and he is not a violent person.
“We want justice. We are demanding a medical examination to ascertain what really happened. He is a family man. He cherishes his wife and says very pleasant things about her. All we want is justice. If scientific evidence proofs he killed his wife, then, he should go in for it. But what we do not like is his being condemned even before autopsy result comes out,” said Sholuki.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni had ordered that alleged wife killer, Lekan Shonde be detained at the homicide unit, State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti-Yaba.
Lekan was alleged to have beaten his wife, Ronke Shonde to death on Thursday night, after which he ran away, locking their two kids in the house with the deceased’s corpse on the ground. He later turned himself in.
