Man In Court For Beating Wife To Death

A man who allegedly beat his wife to death was yesterday arraigned before a Lagos High Court in Igbosere.

37-year-old Babatunde Gbolahan, who was arraigned for manslaughter, pleaded not guilty to the charge instituted against him by the Police.

The charge read in part; “you, Babatunde Gbolahan, committed the offence on October 13, 2009 at 9, Olatunji Street, Mushin, Lagos at 7.40p.m.”

It was gathered that the defendant had an argument with his wife, Yemisi, which led to a fight and he beat her to death with a belt and stick.

According to State Counsel, Mr. W. A. Quadri, who urged the court for an adjournment to enable him produce his witness, the offence contravened Section 325 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State.

Presiding judge, Justice Aishat Opesanwo obliged to Quadr’s request, and adjourned the case to December 2.
