Man Instruct Kids to Lie After Beating Their Mother to Death The Homicide division of the Lagos State Criminal Investigations Department (SCID), is currently working to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of a woman who was beaten to death by her 42-year-old husband at Oko-oba area of Lagos State.

The suspect, identified as John Owobi, is currently being detained by detectives at the SCID, Panti, Yaba, for murder, after allegedly committing the act and forcing his three kids to tell neighbors that their mother died after drinking Snipper, a poisonous insecticide.

The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Bolaji Salami, said the lifeless body of the deceased, Theresa, was found lying on the floor of their room and parlor self-contained at No. 42, Musiliu Street, Oko-oba area of Lagos by neighbours.

To hide the crime, the suspect is reported to have instructed  his kids not to say anything contrary to what he had told their landlord. A source at SCID revealed that the neighbours were attracted to the scene by the persistent cry for help from the deceased on the day she died, though the suspect had told his neighbours that his wife of about 15 years died after she drank poison.

The suspect further alleged that he had earlier tried to prevent his wife from committing suicide, but that he was shocked hours later when he discovered that she had gulped a full bottle of Snipper.

Luck, however, ran against the suspect, when his three children insisted that their dad had actually instructed them to say that their mum died after drinking insecticide.

Speaking to newsmen the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Olarinde Famous-Cole, confirmed the incident and revealed that an autopsy was  conducted on the woman that showed that the deceased suffered internal injuries and fractures from the beating she received.

He said;

The suspect killed his wife and still went to the station to report that the deceased was found lying dead on the floor in their room. He claimed that his wife drank Snipper, but investigation revealed that the suspect beat up the wife to death.”
