Man Hits Ex-Wife With Stone For Putting Marks On Heads Of Their Children


A woman identified as Mary Olohunwa is currently in hospital after she was brutalised by her ex-husband, Keji Ademola in Bako Estate in Lagos, southwest Nigeria.

The estate is in the Owode Onirin area of the state.

A relation of Mary who spoke to SaharaReporters on Monday said she was accosted on her way to her shop last Thursday by her ex-husband who beat her and hit her with a heavy stone.

According to the source, Ademola claimed he saw strange marks on their children’s heads. But the woman explained to him that she put the marks to fend spiritual attacks off and protect the children. 

The source said after Mary was hit by her ex-husband, she started bleeding and was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Pictures obtained by SaharaReporters show Mary lying down with a bloodied face. A video also obtained by the newspaper shows how Ademola was apprehended by residents of the area after he had reportedly attempted to flee.

My sister is still in hospital. The stone wounded her a lot and we have been asked to pay a medical bill of around N160,000 for her treatment,” Mary’s sister told SaharaReporters.

SaharaReporters learnt that Ademola had been handed over to the police and had been in custody since then.

Mary’s sister added that the police told us he would be arraigned in court today (Monday) by 11 am and we are for that”.

She continued: “This would be the third time this man wanted to kill my sister. It was because of his violent nature that they separated three years ago.

“We took him to Ketu Police Station before this recent incident, but he was released eventually without any punishment. This time, I hope the police do not compromise on their job.”

Efforts to reach the spokesperson for the state police command, Benjamin Hundeyin, for further details failed.
