The Lagos State Police Command has verified the arrest of Ikechukwu Ogbonna, alias IVD, a 37-year-old Lagos vehicle trader, in connection with the death of his wife, Abimbola, in the state’s Lekki region.

Benjamin Hundeyin, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed this to our correspondent on Monday.

“He was arrested on Saturday, and he’s with us,” he stated.

Ikechukwu and Abimbola had been married for 16 years, and they had five children.

However, the marriage was riddled with discord and allegations of domestic abuse.

The pair split up at the height of their conflict and were thought to have just reconnected.

On Saturday, October 15, however, there was a fire in their Lekki residence, and Abimbola was caught in the blaze.

She was brought to the hospital and died there.

The suspect posted a series of videos on his Instagram page in response to his wife’s murder, stating that she had been aggressive to him and trashed his belongings.

The suspect was seen on one of the films pointing to his injured head and stating, “See what she did to me?” 

She just smacked me right now. 

This is my blood. 

“I’m not going to accept this.”

The police spokesperson, Hundeyin, however, said the suspect had been arrested and transferred  to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba.
