A man, Afobaje Maiyegun, has been arrested by the police in Lagos for beating his wife.
Lagos Coordinator of Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT), Mrs Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, said he will be charged to court today, Friday, May 15, 2020.
Vivour-Adeniyi said on Thursday that Maiyegun’s arrest followed a video that went viral in which he was seen boasting that he had just beaten up his wife and declared he is ‘’waiting for her police to come and arrest him.
She said a team of DSVRT reached out to ACP Gbolahan Odugbemi, Area Commander, Area J Police Station, who ensured the arrest of Maiyegun.
According to her, the preliminary investigation conducted revealed it was not the first time Maiyegun would perpetrate such a dastardly act.
She said a partner NGO, HerFessions Initiative, was on ground to assist with the investigation.
“This is to sound a clear warning that the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared a zero-tolerance to Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in the State and as such perpetrators will face the full weight of the law,” she added.
