The police in Lagos State have arrested a man, Emmanuel Impala, for allegedly beating his 40-year-old wife to death over a matter.

The command’s spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the arrest, on Thursday, said that one Destiny, who claimed to be the son of Patience Johnson (now deceased), reported at the Elere Police Division on Tuesday that on Monday, at about 2pm he received a distressed call that his mother’s husband allegedly beat her and inflicted injuries on her, leading to her vomiting blood.

He further said that Destiny stated that he rushed to see his mother early in the morning on Tuesday but did not meet her husband at home.

Hundeyin added, “Destiny subsequently rushed his mother to the Orile-Agege General Hospital where she was admitted for medical treatment. The mother’s husband was later arrested and detained.

“Unfortunately, at 7.50am on Thursday when the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Smith Olanrewaju, visited the hospital to check the victim, the doctor on duty informed him that the woman gave up the ghost at about 6am on Thursday.

“The corpse will be evacuated to Mainland General Hospital Mortuary, Yaba, for autopsy, while investigation into the matter is ongoing.”
