    Man beats wife to death and forces his children to say she committed suicide

    The Homicide section of the Lagos State Criminal and Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba on Wednesday arrested a man for killing his wife violently, we report at asdeenvibez

    The man identified as 42-year-old John Owobi was arrested at the Okooba area of the state for killing his wife, Theresa.
    Preliminary investigation conducted by detectives revealed that after Owobi beat his wife to death, he allegedly forced his three kids to tell neighbours that their mother died after she drank Sniper, an insecticide.
    According to eyewitness reports, the lifeless body of the deceased was found lying on the floor of their room and parlor apartment at No. 42 Musiliu Street, Okooba by neighbours.
    To cover up his tracks, the suspect was said to have forced his three children not to say anything contrary to what he had told their landlord.
    The suspect had also told neighbours that his wife was suicidal, claiming that he had earlier tried to prevent her from committing suicide in the past.

    Playing the bereaved husband to the hilt, he feigned shock as he regaled the neighbours on his pain when he purportedly discovered that she gulped the said bottle of Snipper.
    However, his three kids later testified against him when the landlord queried them alone in his apartment, given that he had heard the woman cry out before her death.
    Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Oficer, Olarinde Famous-Cole , an Assistant Superintendent of Police, said autopsy conducted on the woman revealed that she died of trauma.
    He said the medical report conducted on the body also revealed that the deceased suffered internal injuries and fractures from the beating she received.
