Nigerian Man Sentenced To Death By Hanging For Killing Wife In Lagos – Lekan Shonde Convicted For Murder Of Wife On Int’l Women’s Day

The depot worker who beat his wife to death out of frustration few years ago has been sentenced to death by hanging.

51-year-old Lekan Shonde was found guilty of murder for beating his wife, Ronke Shonde to death at their home in Egbeda Idimu area of Lagos back in 2016.

The factory worker was allegedly to have locked up the corpse of his late wife in the same house with their 2 children before fleeing.

The lifeless corpse of the deceased was found by their housekeeper who reported the matter to the police.

Shonde reportedly accused his wife of sleeping with a GM of a publishing firm before he killed her.

The sentence delivered by Justice Josephine Oyefeso in Lagos on Friday reads;

“This is the sentence of the court upon you, that you should be hanged until you are dead. May the Lord have mercy upon you.”

He was convicted of murder on a day set aside as International Women’s day, what a coincidence!. #saynotoevil.

May God have mercy on his soul.

    Really? Say no to evil. Evildoers will never go unpunished…. what an unremorseful act? Beat her until she gasp to death, you didn’t retrace and take her to hospital for resuscitation. Rather you heartlessly do other wise…..

    I join the magistrate to say ” May the Lord have MERCY upon you!” Amen!

    RIP in advance!!
