The Lagos State High Court on Friday sentenced Lekan Shonde a depot worker in the Apapa area of Lagos to death.
Lekan Shonde who was found guilty of murdering his wife Ronke, was sentence to death by hanging after a court Judgement.
It would be recalled the 51-year-old Lekan allegedly beat his wife to death at their home in Egbeda-Idimu area of Lagos State.
He was alleged to have locked the door on the corpse with their two children before the incident was discovered by a housekeeper who reported the incidence to the police.
The marriage, which was blessed with two children, aged six and four, was said to have been marred with domestic violence as Lekan had accused Ronke of sleeping with the general manager of a publishing company Mr. Kayode.
Delivering the judgment on Friday, Justice Josephine Oyefeso sentenced Lekan to death based on the conviction that the convict killed his wife, Ronke.
