Butcher beats wife to death in Ogun for disrespecting him

          • Kasali

An Ifo, Ogun state based butcher, Sina Kasali,  has beaten his wife to death, citing disrespect by the wife as reason for the fatal assault on her.

Kasali who has been arrested by the Police in Ogun State for the homicidal action, attributed the cause of the fight that resulted in his wife's death to allegation by the deceased that he was caught  peeping into the private part of a prostitute.

The 38 year - old butcher who has been jobless for sometimes now, beats his wife,  Sofiat Kasali, to death on Sunday at their residence in Abosule area of Agbado in Ifo Local Government Area of the state.

He was arrested same day following a report by one of the couple’s neighbour, Tunde Babatunde,  who reported the incident at the Agbado Divisional headquarters to the effect that Kasali   and his wife had a minor disagreement when she was  to go  fetch water.

It  was gathered that a scuffle ensued when the husband asked her not to go yet and in the process, the man beats his wife until she slipped into coma and died later while being taken to hospital.


The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident, said  the Dividional Police Officer for  Agbado Division, Olatunji Omonijo,  led detectives to the scene and arrested the man.

Oyeyemi added that upon interrogation, Kasali claimed to be a butcher and  has been out of job for some months, which made his wife to take advantage of the joblessness to disrespect him.

The suspect  explained further that on that fateful day, he was sitting  outside when his wife came, and accused him of looking into the private part of a prostitute who sat at an  opposite direction.

 According to him, the accusation touched - off his anger and fight that resulted to the death of the wife.
