The police at State Criminal Investigation Department,
SCID have arrested a 57-year-old man for allegedly
beating his 40-year-old wife to death in Iba area of
Lagos State, western Nigeria.
The suspect, Ikechukwu Anajekwu, allegedly rained
blows on his wife, Obiageli, and she collapsed and
died.
The incident happened recently at 7, Okoye Close,
Agbaroko in Iba, Lagos where they reside.
P.M.NEWS gathered that trouble started when
Ikechukwu returned from work at 7 p.m. and did not
see Obiageli at home.
He became angry and when she eventually returned
home, he beat her until she fell down and became
unconscious.
When he rushed her to a hospital, she was declared
dead on arrival.
The neighbours who saw what happened, contacted
the police in the area who arrested Ikechukwu and
took him to the station.
Ikechukwu reportedly told the police that he had no
intention of killing her and said what happened was an
accident.
The matter was transferred to SCID for further
investigation.
When the police established that he was responsible
for her death, he was charged before Ebutte Metta
Magistrates’ court with murder under the Criminal
Code.
When he was arraigned, his plea was not taken.
Rather, the presiding Magistrate, Mrs Y. J. Badejo-
Okusanya ordered him to be remanded in prison
custody at Ikoyi.
The court also ordered the prosecutor to duplicate his
file and send it to DPP for advice.
