Update On Ronke Bewaiji; Alleged Killer Husband Speaks From Hiding

According to Punch newspaper, Lekan Shonde, the man who allegedly killed his wife at their home at Tiemo Close, Off Awori Street, Egbeda, Lagos, has explained that his wife, Ronke, provoked him by describing vividly how her lover slept with her in a hotel in Abuja.

Lekan, a depot worker at Apapa, Lagos State, said his wife of 8 years changed after she allegedly started dating the general manager of a publishing company. Speaking from hiding in a chat with Punch, he regretted marrying Ronke, explaining that his late mother had warned him against it, but he never listened.

The marriage was said to have been marred with domestic violence but he said the last time he beat her was three years ago. His words: “Since I married her, she has never bought anything into the house. I gave her N5k on Saturdays and N3k on Tuesdays for soup.
.
.
I also gave her money to make her hair. She was working with GTB as a marketer, but she got sacked 3 years ago. For that period, I was the one feeding her and taking responsibility for everything in the family. I would wash her pants, bathe the children and buy foodstuffs in the house.
.
.
She later got a job with a publishing company owned by her uncle. But she changed sometime in March, when she started dating the general manger of a publishing company. She was going to the office from Monday to Sunday and she wasn’t going to church again, all because of this man.
.
.
She called him ‘Eyitemi’ (My own). Last week Friday, she went to Abuja and came back on Monday. She never told me that the lover was there with her. I learnt later that the lover was there and they slept together in the same room for 4 days. When she came back, she didn’t know I was inside the house.
.
.
She started talking with the man on the phone that she really had fun with him and I didn’t know how to make love. She again said her private parts were paining her.”
.
He said he confronted his late wife and she confirmed that she was dating the other man, adding that she asked him to concentrate on a relationship. Lekan said his wife refused to leave the house despite his insistence on her leaving. Recounting the incident of that night which led to her death, he said:
.
.
“It was around 9pm on Thursday. We had paid our nanny N20,000. Then we needed to pay our children’s teachers N30,000. I discovered she had taken N20,000 and when I asked her to return my money, she said she had spent it. I was angry because for the past 3 months, she didn’t allow me to have sex with her.
.
.
I pushed her hand away from me on the staircase and I left her. She never tumbled or fell. In fact that night, I bought the food that we both ate because she said she didn’t want to cook. I didn’t know anything had happened to her until Friday when I saw her on the staircase.
.
.
I thought she was still pretending. I just left her and walked away.” Asked why he shut the gate against his children, he said he never did, adding that it was his son that closed that gate. He also denied taking her phone away, saying he left it on the bed. .
.
.
He said he had no reason to kill her, adding that he bought her two cars and always provided for her needs. He said: “Jide, her family’s 2nd child lived with me for three to four years. Their eldest daughter, Bolatito, has lived with me too. Although I am not a saint, I don’t drink, I don’t smoke.
.
.
I am a responsible man. The problem with my wife was that she was temperamental. She shouted at me whenever she talked. “
