Few months ago, it was also reported that flowed at Alhaji Ganiu Street, Bako Estate, in the Ketu area of Lagos State, as 28-year-old Maureen Adejo, who was allegedly beaten to death by her husband, Olaoluwa Adejo, was buried.
32-year-old Olaoluwa and the deceased, who hailed from Imo State, had been married for about five years. The marriage, which was blessed with three children, was said to have been marred with disgreements as the bank worker later allegedly threatened to kill his wife.
She was said to have packed to her mother’s house, but returned for a party at her children’s school. While Olaoluwa claimed that she took local insecticide, Sniper, their five-year-old son, Richard, said his father tortured his mother and forced the insecticide down her throat. The case was subsequently transferred from the Oworonshoki Police Station to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.
