The alleged lover of Ronke Shonde, the woman whose husband allegedly beat to death in the Egbeda Area of Lagos State, has been nowhere to be found since Monday, May 9, 2016.
The man is the managing director of a publishing firm in the Ikeja area of the state where the deceased woman worked until her death on Thursday, May 5, 2016.
Mrs. Shonde’s husband, and alleged killer, Lekan Shonde, an oil worker in the Apapa area of the state, accused his wife of having an affair with the company’s MD whose identity was withheld, adding that his wife never denied the allegations until her death.
As at Tuesday, May 10, 2016 the MD was still absent at the office located on the ground floor of a two-storey building on Talabi Street, Ikeja, and none of the workers could speak about the incident or his whereabouts.
Mr Shonde maintained that it was his wife’s secret affair with her boss that stirred the last quarrel which unfortunately led her to her early grave.
According to him, he got infuriated when his wife of eight years plainly described how good her lover was during their sex escapade in an Abuja hotel.
The suspect has been arrested on Monday, May 9, 2016 and is currently being questioned by detectives at the Homicide department of the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department.
