I Mistakenly Crushed My Wife With Car, Killer Husband Tells Police
The police have arrested a father of seven, Azeez Balogun, over the death of his wife, Tawa, in the Itire area of Ajangbadi, Lagos State.
Punch Metro gathered that Balogun’s neighbours and residents accused him of constantly subjecting Tawa, who was said to be his second wife, to torture, whenever an argument ensued between them.
A day before Tawa’s death, Balogun was said to have beaten her, as neighbours claimed that she screamed for help.
According to report, the deceased gave birth to three children while the first wife had four children. Tawa reportedly cared for all seven children.
A video clip attached to the post showed as residents and neighbours gathered to mourn Tawa’s passing.
The person who recorded the clip lamented that Balogun abandoned his wife’s corpse at his residence and fled.
“See what happened at Itire, Ajangbadi. Husband beat his wife till she died; called his wife’s family members to come and carry her dead body, abandoned the dead body and absconded,” the resident said.
Another resident, while recording himself, said Balogun went to report himself at the Agbara Police Station (Ogun State), adding that Balogun’s neighbours attested to him maltreating his wife.
He said, “We went to Ajangbadi Police Station to report what happened, but the policemen at the station refused to attend to us and asked us to report the matter at the Agbara Police Station.
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Balogun had been arrested, adding that investigation was ongoing.
