“The defendant wanted to make love to his wife, he inserted his two fingers into her private part which didn’t go down well with the deceased. A fight ensued leading the defendant to beat up his wife,” he said.

The prosecutor said that murder contravened the provisions of Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Section 223 stipulates death sentence for the offence.

Olatunji adjourned the case until June 7 for mention.
