Wife BatteryA chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ogun State, Chief Bayo Awosanya, who made news headlines for allegedly battering his wife – Victoria – at their Sagamu residence on Easter Sunday, has finally turned himself in at the Ogun Police Command.

Mr. Awosanya was alleged to have hit his wife’s head against a window pane in addition to yanking off the hair extensions on her head for refusing to attend an outing as instructed by her husband. As a result of the injuries she sustained, Victoria was reportedly hospitalised for four days at a hospital in the Sabo area of Sagamu.

The APC chieftain, who went underground following the widespread condemnation that greeted the barbaric act, was reportedly absent at the state’s APC congress which held last Saturday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Several women rights groups and non-governmental organizations had called for Awosanya’s arrest with the Ogun State Police Commissioner, Mr. Ikemefuna Okoye, assuring the general public that the matter would not be swept under the carpet.

However, a statement by the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Muyiwa Adejobi, said Bayo was taken into custody on Monday after he personally reported himself to the Sagamu Police Division.

Adejobi said, “At about 8am, due to the threats issued and pressure mounted on Bayo to show up  before he would be declared wanted by the police, he reported himself to the Sagamu Police Division on Monday.

“Bayo confessed to the offence of wounding levelled against him and has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for necessary investigation. He will be charged to court immediately we conclude our investigation.

“The Commissioner of Police Ogun State, Mr. Ikemefuna Okoye, has assured the general public, particularly interested NGOs, and Civil Society Organisations of its readiness to support their fight against crime in order to have a better society”.
