The Lagos State High Court on Friday found Lekan Shonde guilty of the murder of his wife, Ronke, ruling that he is to die by hanging.
Delivering the judgement on Friday, Justice Josephine Oyefeso sentenced the jealous husband to death after she was satisfied that the prosecution proved beyong reasonable doubt that the accused killed his wife, Ronke.
The convict, a depot worker in the Apapa area of Lagos State, was accused of killing his wife in 2016 after she provoked him by describing vividly how her lover made love to her in a hotel room in Abuja.
Mr. Shonde was consequently arrested by the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Nigerian Police.
His marriage with the deceased was blessed with two children, aged six and four.
He had accused Ronke of having an immoral affair with one Kayode, the general manager of a publishing company.
