Detectives from ‘B’ Division Headquarters, Ilesa have arrested a man named Wale Agbaje for beating his wife to death.
The incident occurred at the Iroye area of Ilesa, Osun state, in their home notoriously known as chaotic.
During their latest argument, reports claim Agbaje hit his wife, Jumoke with concrete block on her forehead, and she went into coma and was rushed to hospital by sympathisers.
According to reports, Jumoke died on arrival at the clinic where she was rushed to for medical attention.
The incident has however, thrown the entire residents of Iroye street and other neighbouring streets into palpable fear and confusion as they told the police that no one could ascertain what could have led to the fight, but, “we only heard them fighting”.
The intervention of security operatives however saved the suspect from being mobbed by the residents who were furious over the development.
The remains of Jumoke has since been deposited at the hospital. When contacted, a top police officer who do not want his name mentioned confirmed the incident.
He explained that the state command has commenced investigation into the root cause of the matter adding that the suspect would soon be arraigned before the court.
