Autopsy Conducted On Late Ronke, Police Invite Alleged Lover
Pathologists at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital on Thursday conducted autopsy on the remains of Ronke Shonde, 36, but declined to make the result public.
Punch Metro learnt that the alleged lover of the victim, Kayode, had been invited to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba, to make statements to assist the police with investigations.
This is just as the landlady of the house, where the incident happened, expressed shock over Ronke’s death and the alleged involvement of her husband, Lekan, saying she had never seen them fight before.
The landlady of the house, who did not want her name in print, told Punch correspondent on Thursday that she was surprised at the incident because Ronke and Lekan were nice and easy-going.
She said, “They are a nice couple. I have never had any reason to separate them in a fight. We don’t hear their voices whenever they are at home. I therefore cannot understand how this happened.”
A source told Punch Metro that the police had already invited Kayode, Ronke’s alleged lover, over the incident.
Kayode and Ronke worked in the same publishing firm belonging to the latter’s uncle.
Lekan had claimed that Kayode slept with his wife in a hotel in Abuja while they both went to recruit workers for the new office of the company.
The source said Kayode had promised to honour the police invitation by next week.
“He should be here next week to state his own side of the story and assist with investigation,” he added.
Punch correspondent was told that the medical team at the LASUTH conducted the autopsy on the deceased on Thursday. A source, who did not want to be named, said the result would be out on Tuesday.
A source told Punch Metro that Lekan had been taking things easy in detention, adding that he gave policemen no reason to be hard on him.
The source said, “He has taken everything calmly, although he is sad that his wife is late. “He has continued to maintain his innocence, saying he loved his wife so much that he could not do anything to hurt her. He said he had even bought her a jeep to celebrate her birthday and the vehicle was on the high sea when this happened.”
