Late Ronke Shonde's Husband Who Allegedly Killed Her Speak Out FromHiding.





Lekan Shonde, the man who allegedly killed a few days ago spoke with Punch Metro and he had quite a lot to say. Read below. 
He said the last time he beat his wife was three years ago after a disagreement, saying he had never touched her afterwards.
He said, “Since I married my wife eight years ago, she has never bought anything into the house. I gave her N5,000 on Saturdays and N3,000 on Tuesdays for soup. I also gave her money to make her hair.
“She was working with GTB as a marketer, but she got sacked three years ago. For that period, I was the one feeding her and taking responsibility for everything in the family. I would wash her pants, bathe the children and buy foodstuffs in the house. She later got a job with a publishing company owned by her uncle.
“But my wife changed sometime in March, when she started dating the general manger of a publishing company. My wife was going to the office from Monday to Sunday and she wasn’t going to church again, all because of this man. She called him ‘Eyitemi’ (My own).
“Last week Friday, she went to Abuja and came back on Monday. She never told me that the lover was there with her. I learnt later that the lover was there and they slept together in the same room for  four days.
“When she came back, she didn’t know I was inside the house. She started talking with the man on the phone that she really had fun with him and I didn’t know how to make love.  She again said her private parts were paining her.”
He said he confronted his late wife and she confirmed that she was dating the other man, adding that he asked her to concentrate on a relationship.
Lekan said his wife refused to leave the house despite his insistence on her leaving.
Recounting the incident of that night which led to her death, he said they had had an argument over money.
He said, “It was around 9pm on Thursday. We had paid our nanny N20,000.  Then we needed to pay our children’s teachers N30,000. I discovered she had taken N20,000 and when I asked her to return my money, she said she had spent it.
“I was angry because for the past three months, she didn’t allow me to have sex with her. I pushed her hand away from me on the staircase and I left her. She never tumbled or fell. In fact that night, I bought the food that we both ate because she said she didn’t want to cook.
“I didn’t know anything had happened to her until Friday when I saw her on the staircase. I thought she was still pretending. I just left her and walked away.”
“Although I am not a saint, I don’t drink, I don’t smoke. I am a responsible man. The problem with my wife was that she was temperamental. She shouted at me whenever she talked.
“I am a Lagos boy and I can be in this Lagos for the next 30 years and nobody would see me.”

  1. I'm sorry, I didn't read beyond "I wash her pant".

    If he's innocent, why did he run and still in hiding?

    Weak men who's strength is in beating their wives.

    2. Iam nt surprised et al the duo where not compatible but as an insider and ex neighbour, they were on false pretence. As Christians they don't go to same church not withstanding both were cheats I have caught both in different incidence.the lady took the man as a trance but expected so much frm imaginary but illusive men as a married woman she condescended to the man the washed her car and others she could lay hands on while the man was busy with the housemaid and others he brought home when she was not home.dont ask me why I didn't inform any of them becus I fear the crashing of their marriage but for their arrogant behaviours.when ronke boosted of the man being powerful did she not note tht same fetish life will incur consequences sad to say she was the victim.hope God shd with his infinite mercies grant them forgiveness if they had remorseful conscience.

  2. I read the Chronicles and I'm not surprised. Even those who kill for rituals have *valid* reasons, how much more this okoko? The only thing that amazes me is the response of the lady's family. They have forgiven him...AFTER 2 DAYS! Eleyi gidi gaan. I won't be surprised if they're the ones at the forefront of the advocates of endurance with reference to domestic violence. How else do you explain an entire family forgiving a murderer in less than 48 hours after the crime?

  5. Manslaughter. Not murder.

    Cant blame him for hiding. Our legal system is not fair here. He will be charged for murder and found guilty even before he gets to court. If he even gets to court. But how long can he hide? If it was abroad he can get away with this act. Im sure he didnt mean to kill her. There is no knief cut, gun shot wound, no wound from a dangerous weapon. She fell down the stairs.

    If he had called olivia Pope immediately it happened we wont even hear about it. He panicked and acted foolishly by running to hide.

    Peace.

  6. Kene Francis says 'something' seems off. Something? Who cares about what seems off or on in what ever bullcrap he has chosen to spill out of his mouth?
    To think that this is his 'valid'reason for what has happened is crazy beyond comprehension.
    Let him keep hiding oh...

  7. Am sure the woman didn't mean that they have forgiven him part, now he is saying she cheated and bla blq bla because she isn't alive to tell her own side of the story. Read the police arrested him this afternoon. I hope he doesn't escape the law.

  8. Thank goodness he has been found. If his actions led to her death then he should face the punishment; murder or manslaughter.

    So,is that his late wife had really good acting skills that he assumed she was pretending overnight, lying on the stairs?

    See the pohoto-shopped picture of the man that has been up before now, who would have recognised him sef, let alone reporting him? I guess he saw the pictures and was claiming "Lagos boy" who can hide. Rme*

    It could be an old picture though.
