As investigation into the domestic violence that led to the alleged killing of Mrs Ronke Shonde by her husband , Lekan, last week in Egbeda area of Lagos continues, It was gathered that an autopsy was conducted on the corpse yesterday to ascertain the exact cause of her death.
This followed denial by her husband, Lekan, of being culpable of her death, as widely reported. Rather, he claimed that his late wife was hypertensive.
News, however, filtered in yesterday evening that the autopsy report was out , with the result unknown. But this was described as false by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni , who simply stated that he was not aware of any report, adding that such information was capable of jeopardizing police investigation.
As part of the ongoing investigation, detectives also visited scene of the crime at 5, Tiemo Crescent, off Awori Street, Ile-Epo Alhaji, accompanied by Lekan, who wore a forlorn look..
They conducted close to four hours search of the flat, scrutinizing every object and taking photographs where necessary, but the outcome of the search could not be immediately ascertained.
Besides, the suspect as gathered had refused to eat since he turned himself in to the Police. He was said to have kept insisting that he wanted to die.
Meanwhile, the publishing firm where one Kayode , the man that was alleged to have had a clandestine relationship with the late Ronke, yesterday, denied having anyone by that name as a member of their staff.
