Two men who alleged killed their wives in different locations, Agege and Okota areas of Lagos State, are assisting the police in their investigations.
Police sources at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Alagbon, confirmed the two cases to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.
The sources, who pleaded anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to newsmen, said that a man (nameswitheld) allegedly beat his wife to death in Agege area.
According to sources, the Agege incident happened on July 4.
The sources also said that another man in Okota area, on July 30 beat his girlfriend to death.
NAN gathered from the sources that the suspect in Agege incident allegedly lied about the cause of his wife’s death.
He allegedly said that his wife died after taken a dose of sniper, a deadly substance used for killing rodents and insects.
Police told NAN that before the investigation team arrived at the scene, the suspect had allegedly told his children not to tell anyone about the cause of their mother’s death.
The sources said that the man told them to say that their mother took sniper to terminate her life prematurely.
“Unfortunately for him, his 13-year-old son, who witnessed what happened, told the police the truth.
“An autopsy also revealed that the victim was beaten to death,” the sources told NAN.
Similarly, in Okota case, sources at the State Criminal Investigation Department told NAN that a man who allegedly beaten his girlfriend to death, was being detained.
“On July 30, neighbours who heard them fighting made efforts to calm them, but found that the door to the apartment have been locked,’’ the source told NAN.
NAN gathered that the landlord of the building, who heard them fighting, became curious when he could no longer hear the lady crying.
“The landlord forced the door opened and found the deceased on the floor.
“The landlord reported the matter to the police and the suspect was promptly arrested.
“The two suspects would soon be charged to court,” the sources told NAN.
