The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of a man who hit his ex-wife with a stone because she put marks on their children for their ‘spiritual protection.’
Morekeji “Keji” Olamilekan’s attack on ex-wife Mary Ololuwa landed her in a hospital.
Witnesses apprehended Keji after the assault and handed him over to the police.
Confirming Keji’s arrest, the command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin said that a case of domestic violence was reported to the Owode Onirin Police Division on Thursday, Jan. 25, at about 3 p.m. by the victim.
He said the victim was brought to the station by some sympathisers while she was bleeding from the injuries allegedly inflicted by the suspect.
The spokesperson said the victim told the police at the counter all that happened to her.
According to Hundeyin, the victim said that at about 2.00 p.m. on Thursday, while she was going to her shop around Bako Estate, at Weighbridge Ajegunle, her ex-husband, Olamilekan Morekeji, stopped her and inquired about their children.
Her response angered him so he hit her on the head with a big stone.
The suspect was arrested and is now in custody.
Meanwhile, the stones used to inflict injuries on the victim were recovered as exhibit.
Hundeyin said that the case would be transferred to the Gender Unit of the command for further investigation.
