The claim that Ronke Shonde, deceased mother of two, was violently assaulted to death by her husband, Lekan Shonde, has been disproved by an autopsy report.
The report, unofficially released, signed by a pathologist Dr. Shoyemi attributed Ronke’s death to “respiratory seizure as a result of water in the head and some injuries also in the head”.
The report put paid to the famous claim that Lekan beat his wife to death, following a spousal argument between them. Lekan has consistently claimed innocence in the matter, while also claiming his wife engaged in marital infidelity before the alleged fight that led to her death the fateful night in their Egbeda home in Lagos.
He is currently being investigated by the police at the State Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba.
