LAGOS—TRAGEDY struck, Tuesday, in Ikorodu area of Lagos State, after a man allegedly killed his wife during a scuffle.

The cause of the fight could not be ascertained, but report said the couple had been having incessant quarrels for some time.

Report said there was a shout of help from Mr and Mrs Molade’s one room apartment located on 14 Ifesowa Street.

However, no one responded as most of the tenants had reportedly left for their respective places of work. Time was 10am.

Out of curiosity, a passerby was said to have gone to the apartment only to find Mrs Omolere Molade unconscious. The said woman reportedly tried resuscitating Omolere without success.

Policemen from Ikorodu Division drafted to the scene reportedly found Omolere dead.

Spokesman for Lagos State Police Command, Ngozi Braide, who confirmed the story, said Mr. Paul Omolade took to his heels immediately after the fight, adding that effort was being made to arrest him.
