He immediately fled the vicinity and took cover at Ajah area of Lagos, where he was arrested.

A neighbour who spoke to Vanguard revealed that trouble started for the deceased shortly after her marriage to Ikeama in 2014, as her husband turned her into a punching bag, even after having two children for her husband.

Late Barrister Adaeze Destiny Ikpeama The neighbour who spoke on the condition of anonymity said “Even when relatives from both sides intervened several times by pleading with the suspect to stop beating his wife, he remained adamant and continued to beat the poor girl any time they had a disagreement.

The Commissioner of Police has ordered that the matter be transferred to State CID for proper investigation.
