A certain Mr. Bright (surname withheld) has been arrested by officers of Ejigbo police station for beating his wife to death. Bright and his late wife reside in Olusesi Street in Idimu road, Ejigbo Lagos.
DAILY POST gathered that the couple, who have been married for years, were known for their constant domestic violence disputes.
Resident told our correspondent that argument ensued between the couple over feeding expense.
The woman, it was gathered, called her husband ‘irresponsible man’.
Angered by the wife’s unguarded outburst, the husband descended on her with countless punches till she collapsed and died on the spot.
“When the man noticed his wife was dead, he quickly removed the body and put inside his car boot,” the resident said.
However, luck ran out of the man after a neighbour spotted him and raised alarm, which attracted other tenants.
The prompt intervention of the security men saved the man from being lynched by some angry youths.
He was subsequently arrested and taken to the police station.
When our reporter visited the street on Thursday, residents of the areas were seen discussing the incident in groups.
A source said the remains of the deceased have been deposited at a mortuary in the area.
