Baale Abeeb Lawal brutally assaulted his wife, Olori Abosede, because she didn't end a phone conversation when he signaled him to.
A Lagos traditional ruler-called Baale- brutally assaulted his wife because she didn't obey his order to end a phone conversation.
Baale Abeeb Lawal, who is the ruler of Ikolalumo in Meiran/Ajasa command area Lagos state, on New Year’s Day beat up his wife because she didn't stop a phone conversation when he signalled her to. It was later learnt that the wife did not stop the phone conversation because she did not understand the signal from the Baale. She thought the signal was for her to lower her voice, which she did.
The Baale was said to have been angered by his wife’s action and descended on her. Baale Abeeb Lawal threw a heavy chair at his wife and later stabbed the wife on the back. The wife lost a lot of blood and fell into coma.
The incident drew attracted neighbours and passersby as the Baale kept ranting and threatening to kill her.
The almost lifeless body of the wife reportedly called, Olori Abosede, was rushed to the hospital by the on looking neighbours.
