Beleaguered husband, Lekan Shonde – accused of killing his wife in a
story that has captivated the nation – today surrendered himself to the
police, after insisting that he wouldn’t. He turned himself to men of
the Rapid Response Squad this question.
Lekan has been accused of beating his wife, Ronke to death in a domestic fight even as he took flight from his Egbeda residence.
According to Encomium, the suspect decided to turn himself in because
friends pleaded with him to report himself to the police and face the
full proceeding of the law in proving his innocence.
The efforts to get Lekan to surrender by his friends was initiated
when they reached out to a certain Chris Kehinde Nwandu, a blogger who
has stayed on the story.
A delegation met Lekan at a hotel in GRA Ikeja around 11:30 am before
they subsequently went on to meet the commander of the Rapid Reponse
Squad, Tunji Disu who in turn took them to the office of the
Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni.
The Commissioner referred the case to the homicide section in Panti police station, Yaba.
