'Lekan is a pathological liar' - Murdered woman's family

The defence put up a man who allegedly murdered his wife and went into hiding, has been punctured by the deceased's family.

Lekan Shonde and wife, Ronke, when the going was good

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."
