Bolatito claims that Lekan killed her sister based on his jealousy and insecurity, Punch Metro reports.
She said, “The first case of abuse which I can remember happened sometime in 2012.”
“The most recent was in December 2015, when we were still mourning the death of my brother. My mother was in the house with them when he started to verbally assault her.”
“It was getting heated and my mum had to immediately leave the house. My mum called me and I went to a police station closest to the house. The policemen there said I could not report the case since I was not the victim.”
The abuse experienced by Ronke Shonde was a big headache for her mother and sister, who had already been hit by the death of a son and brother named Jide.
According to Bewaji, they had sought out ways to ensure that the victim moved out of the Lekan’s residence in order to protect her.
“My mother said I must make sure she packed her belongings. I started begging her to follow me, and she stood up and went ahead of me.”
“But as I stepped out, I discovered that she had gone back. When I returned to their house, I found her in bed.”
“I called her and said, ‘my sister, do you want to die? We don’t want to lose you. We just lost our second born.”
“I know you are a loving person and you care about your family, but you have to quit this marriage.” At this point, she (Ronke) started crying,”
Concerning the child Lekan has outside wedlock, Bewaji said, “My sister called me and said her husband had a child outside wedlock.”
“She said somebody brought the child to the house and said her husband was the father. She was shattered by that news and from that time, she started keeping to herself.”
“Lekan asked her to forgive him, saying it was the devil’s handiwork. He would kneel and beg in the kitchen and bathroom.”
“He promised to do a DNA test to know if the child was truly his own, but he didn’t do it. He started sending people to beg her. But she decided to stop talking to him.”
As investigations into the death of Ronde Shonde continues, her family has been reported to be currently engaged with plans concerning her burial.
