Lekan Shonde, a depot worker in the Apapa area of Lagos State, was found guilty of the murder of his wife.

It had been reported that 51-year-old Lekan allegedly beat his wife to death at their home in the Egbeda-Idimu area of Lagos State.

He was alleged to have locked the door on the corpse and their two children before the incident was discovered by a housekeeper and later reported to the police.
