The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu has reiterated the commitment of the command to tackling domestic violence in the State just as the Command arrested a suspect, David Idibie for the murder of his wife, Juliana Idibie on the 16th February, 2021 at about 10pm.

According to a statement signed by the spokesman of the command, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, the deceased had engaged the suspect in a hot argument bordering on matrimonial issues and in the process, she slumped and sustained severe head injury.

While lying in her pool of blood, Adejobi said, the angry husband refused to rescue her until she gave up the ghost.

The statement read, “police operatives attached to Langbasa Division, Ajah, who were informed of the ugly incident by a neighbour of the couple, raced to the scene, arrested the suspect and evacuated the corpse to the mortuary.

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has condemned the act and vowed to work with other relevant government agencies and Non-Governmental bodies to tackle domestic violence to a standstill in the state.

The police boss has ordered that the matter be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba, for proper investigation. While reiterating his zero tolerance for crimes and criminality, especially domestic violence, CP Hakeem Odumosu admonishes couples to always resolve their differences and conflicts with decorum and maturity as the law will not spear anyone who kills his or her spouse.

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, therefore commiserates with the family and friends of the deceased on her untimely death and promises to make sure justice is done in the case.”
