This will calm the allegation laid against Shonde, who was accused of beating his wife to death.

The accusation that Shonde beat up his wife to death was made strong, when Ronke's family stated that her husband had a violent history.

Bolatito, the sister of the deceased (Ronke) stated that Shonde had physically abused her in the past, and that her death might be linked to it.

However, the Lagos State Police Command has not been able to confirm the new development concerning investigations into the death of Ronke.

SP Dolapo Badmos, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, said they are yet to receive the autopsy report.

She said, “I just spoke with the people in charge now and they said the result is not complete yet. I will advise we exercise patience and caution. The police are also monitoring the case and we intend to get the report soon. This will be disclosed to  the public.”
