A 26-year-old man, Mathew Oguntade, has just been arrested by the Ogun state police command in Abeokuta, for allegedly killing his 20-year-old wife, Mary on Friday, January 13.
The couple, who lived behind the Anglican Church, Owode-Ijako, in the Ado Odo/Ota local government area of the state, was reported to have engaged in a minor disagreement which led into a fight before the unfortunate incident happened.
According to the community development association chairman, Iskilu Kareem, who reported the case to the police, he disclosed that he received a telephone call from a member of the vigilance group in the area that the husband and wife were engaged in a scuffle, adding that before he got to their house, the husband had strangled his wife, threw the body outside through a window and ran away.
