Alleged Wife Killer, Lekan Shonde Begs Police To Shoot Him As He Is Transferred To Panti

Lekan Sonde, 57, who allegedly killed his wife in Egbeda area of Lagos State, was said to have been contemplating suicide, before he finally surrendered himself to the police in Monday.
The suspect also begged the police to shoot and kill him, stating that life was not worth living for him again.

Lagos Metro also gathered that the suspect was tracked to a hotel at the Ikeja GRA by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), before he finally decided to surrender himself to the police. The police also recovered his wife’s phone from him during a search on him.

It was further gathered that the suspect had planned committing the alleged crime before he escaped to Ondo State from where he was persuaded to return home to Lagos, by his friend.

The suspect, who was interrogated by the state commissioner of police, Fatai Owoseni was later transferred to the homicide section of the Lagos State police command at the state CID, Panti.

Lagos Metro gathered that there had been a serious disagreement between the suspect and his friends, who advised him to surrender to the police, but he refused.
A source at the RRS told Lagos Metro that, “our men tracked him to a hotel in Ikeja GRA but we were careful not to allow him escape. We kept monitoring the movement of people in the area.”
He added that, “at that time our men continued to appeal to him to surrender himself to the police and the communication was monitored. At about past 12 on Monday, he came to our office with some of his friends and surrendered himself.”
Lekan, who was accused of killing his wife, Ronke was later taken to the state police command headquarters by the commander in charge of RRS, Olatunji Disu.

The state police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni spoke with the suspect for about three hours, before he was finally transferred to the State CID, Panti for further investigations.

There were also claims that the suspect was planning to escape to Ghana and the Republic of Benin, before he finally surrendered to the police.

The suspect was said to have sent about 70 text messages to some of his friends that he wanted to commit suicide.

Some of the text messages, read “I want to die, Please help,” ”I can’t face police or cell,” “You are the only one advising me not to kill myself, I will respect you till I die,” “I want to go to the Attorney General of Lagos State to surrender myself.”
