A Woman Identified as Mrs Ronke Akinyemi , who lives at Raimi Street, Ahmadiyya, Ojokoro, Agbado-Ijaiye, Lagos State, was reportedly battered by her husband and father of their 4kids Mr Olatunji Akinyemi at their home in Lagos, LIB reports.
According to LIB which reported the assault, Mr Olatunji is said to have taken a new wife on July 4, 2021, and that since that time, the first wife, Ronke is alleged to have been subjected to assault and physical abuse by Mr Olatunji.
A source who reached out to LIB concerning the situation is asking that the woman should be saved before it’s too late and she dies from the abuse.
The victim, Mrs Ronke, told LIB that the reason she was beaten freshly was because she demanded that her husband should help sponsor their first son now that he has gotten admission into school.
She said that she sells fruits, but due to an ailment she’s been battling with for years, there is a limit to how much work she can do, hence, cannot handle her children’s schooling alone.
Asking for their son’s school fees allegedly earned her beating as her husband asked her to go and look for the money.
After beating her, he allegedly chased her around with his car, threatening to kill her, according to eyewitnesses.
Mrs Ronke said her husband claims he cannot send the son to school but he has money to marry another wife.
She said she and Mr Olatunji have been together for over 20 years but they got officially married in 2006. Since then, she said she has been abused by him but it got worse after he took a second wife.
After the latest beating, Mrs Ronke said her husband’s younger brother also tried to beat her so she reported to human rights activists and they gave her a letter to receive treatment at the Orile-Agege General hospital.
She explained that since then, his family have been fighting her and accusing her of trying to get their son arrested. [Source: LIB]
