Autopsy Report on Ronke Shonde May Shock Nigerians


The police in Lagos State have denied inviting Kayode Oluokun, the alleged lover of Ronke Shonde, who was allegedly killed by her husband, Lekan, at the Egbeda, Lagos State home, last week.

This is just as the police in the state were as of Friday evening yet to get the result of the autopsy test conducted on the deceased woman.

The police, however, pointed out that the alleged lover would only be invited “if there is any reason to do so” after the result of the autopsy.

The image maker in charge of the state police command, Dolapo Badmus, while speaking with Saturday Tribune, denied that the alleged lover had been invited by the police.

“It is not true that we have invited him (Oluokun),” Badmus said, adding, “We have not received the autopsy report yet.”

Meanwhile, as everyone awaits the result of the autopsy on the late Ronke Shonde, it has been learnt that the report could be a shocker.

A source told our correspondent that the report, which will be out next week, might not go the way of public opinion.

Our correspondent had reported how Lekan, 51, allegedly beat his wife, Ronke, to death at their home in the Egbeda-Idimu area of the Lagos State last Thursday.

He was alleged to have shut the gate against the corpse and his two children. The police from the Idimu division were said to have recovered the corpse by Friday morning after the landlady reported the case.

Lekan, a dockworker in Apapa, had fled and was reported to have travelled to Ondo State en route to Benin Republic, before he returned to Lagos after much persuasion by friends.

The Abeokuta, Ogun State indigene, who spoke with our correspondent while in hiding, had denied complicity in the death.

He accused Ronke of sleeping with the general manager of a publishing company where she worked as the human resources manager.

After three days in hiding, the suspect gave himself up to officers of the Rapid Response Squad in Alausa, and was taken to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba.

Our correspondent, who visited the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, on Friday, learnt that the family had already visited the mortuary for some documentations.

A source said the autopsy would be released on Tuesday, adding that the result would be a shocker.

She said, “The police brought the corona form on Wednesday and the autopsy was conducted on Thursday. The report should be ready next week Tuesday. But the outcome will be a shocker to the world.” It was learnt that Ronke’s family had postponed all plans for her burial till when the result was released.

A family source said she would be given a befitting burial.
