The Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Adewale Osifeso has
confirmed an incident in Ogbere housing estate in Ibadan, where a
middle-aged man, Taofeek Gbolagade, on Tuesday morning, beat his
pregnant wife (name withheld) to stupor over her failure to prepare
Ramadan meal for him.
Noting that investigation had commenced on the matter and updates
would be provided in due course, the police revealed that the incident
happened around 4 am at their residence.
An eyewitness said: “This man always beats his wife over any little
misunderstanding they have. I was able to record today’s event. He is a
Muslim so I think they had an argument over Sahur.
“This man didn’t mind that she was pregnant with his second child and
started pouncing on her. She wailed for hours before she was able to flee
to her parents’ house. Gbolagade has flown his house after being declared
wanted by the security personnel.”
