The family of Ronke Bewaji Shonde, the woman allegedly murdered by her husband, Lekan Shonde, has slammed the telephone interview the man had with the Punch Newspaper where he claimed that his wife was sleeping with another man and that he has not beaten her in three years.

A family source hinted that all Lekan said in the said interview were all lies as he is a known wife beater who took delight in beating his wife anytime they had an issue.

“He always beat her because of his belief that she was into an extra-marital affair.

The beating reduced a bit when the wife of her late brother who was one month pregnant before his death, moved into the house with them. She stayed for about eight months. She was like her saviour.”

Another member of the deceased family has also punctured Lekan's side of the story, claiming there were all lies as their sister did not have an affair with another man and that he actually beat her to death.

"I think what he's trying to do is put up a defence mechanism to make him feel like he's the victim here. Everything he said in the interview is a lie. The family will tell their own side of the story when the time is right. All we want him to do now is show up."
